News: Venable is out of the lineup Monday against the Rockies. Impact: Venable will take a seat with lefty Tyler Matzek on the mound, ending a run of four straight starts. He's been largely a disappointing coming off of a 20-20 campaign a year earlier, which could hamper his chances of winning an Opening Day starting job in 2015. His chief competition for that role might be the up-and-coming Rymer Liriano, who will spell Venable in right field on Monday.(RotoWire, )

News: Venable is out of the lineup Saturday against the Giants, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

News: Venable went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer Thursday against the Phillies. Impact: It was his seventh homer of the year and first since Aug. 24. Even worse, Venable hasn't had more than one hit in a game since Aug. 5 -- that's a span of 32 games (18 starts) and 69 at-bats.(RotoWire, )

News: Venable is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies. Impact: There hasn't been any word of a setback with Venable's back strain, so the team likely just doesn't want to push its luck with the 31-year-old outfielder. He missed two starts due to the injury but went 1-for-5 with two walks in the first two games of the Phillies series.(RotoWire, )

News: Venable (back) went 0-for-1 with a strikeout and two walks in his return to the lineup Monday. Impact: The back strain cost Venable close to a week, but he returned Monday and will now look to finishing his disappointing 2014 campaign (.221/.290/.317) on a high note. He should continue seeing at least semi-regular time over the final two weeks, between right field and center.(RotoWire, )

News: Venable (back) is out of the lineup Friday against the Diamondbacks.
