News: Valbuena (illness) is in the starting lineup Sunday against the Mets, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports. Impact: Valbuena was limited to pinch-hit duty in the first two games of the series due to illness, but will return to the hot corner Sunday afternoon. Having collected just one base knock since August 7, Valbuena will look to break out of his slump batting fifth Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Valbuena is out of the lineup Friday against the Mets. Impact: Valbuena is currently mired in a miserable slump, with just one hit in his last nine games (1-for-29), so manager Rick Renteria will turn third base back over to Chris Valaika on Friday. The 28-year-old Valbuena has seen his average fall by close to 20 points since Aug. 5 (from .252 to .233), and may be in danger of seeing his role reduced.(RotoWire, )

News: Valbuena (illness) will be held out of the lineup again Saturday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
