News: Hunter had a big day Monday, going 2-for-4 with a solo home run. Impact: Hunter's blast off of Casey Fein broke a 6-6 tie in the ninth inning. The 39-year-old outfielder has been productive this season, hitting .282 with 16 homers and 78 RBI for the season. Monday's home run was his first since July 31.(RotoWire, )

News: Hunter (head) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals, MLB.com's Jason Beck reports. Impact: Hunter exited Monday's game before it was completed due to a collision in the outfield, but it appears he is no worse for the wear Tuesday. Hunter will man right field and bat second Tuesday as he has done regularly the last few weeks.(RotoWire, )

News: Hunter went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in Monday's win over the Royals, but was removed in the final frame after an outfield collision two innings earlier, Matthew Mowery of the Oakland Press reports. Impact: Hunter appeared to have a bead on a Lorenzo Cain flyball to the gap in right-center field in the seventh, but center fielder Don Kelly apparently thought the same, as he collided with Hunter, knocking the glove off his hand. The ball eventually bounced away from the outfielders and resulted in an inside-the-park home run for Cain, with Hunter remaining on the ground for a few moments after hitting his head on the ground. He passed on-field concussion tests and remained in the game and then passed another exam later on, but it wouldn't be surprising if Hunter was held out of Tuesday's contest as a precaution.(RotoWire, )

News: Hunter (foot) is back in the lineup Friday against the Giants. Impact: The 39-year-old fouled a ball off his right foot Wednesday, but it seems the decision to hold him out Thursday was largely precautionary. Hunter will return to right field and the two-hole in the order to face right-hander Jake Peavy, against whom he's 8-for-19 with a homer and seven RBI in his career.(RotoWire, )

News: Hunter is out of the lineup Thursday against the Indians. Impact: Hunter's absence from the lineup is less an indictment of his recent production and more of a desire by manager Brad Ausmus to take a longer look at the newly recalled Tyler Collins, who hit a three-run homer in his lone plate appearance with the club. Even at age 39, Hunter has done well to remain productive and maintain a hold on right field duties. He's batting .276 with 15 homers and 73 RBI over 119 games.(RotoWire, )

News: Updating a previous report, Hunter has been held out of Thursday's lineup due to a right foot issue, Chris Iott of MLive.com reports. Impact: Hunter fouled a ball off the foot Wednesday night and is apparently still dealing with some soreness. The veteran suspects a day out of the lineup is all he'll need to recover, making it likely he'll be back in action Friday against the Giants.(RotoWire, )
