News: Venable is out of the lineup for the second straight day Wednesday against the Rockies, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: Although Venable is sitting for the second game in a row, it's likely due to the fact that the Padres are once again facing a left-handed pitcher. Abraham Almonte will take over in center field, in what's starting to look more and more like a platoon situation.(RotoWire, )

Impact: With lefty Yohan Flande on the hill for Colorado, Venable will turn center field over to Abraham Almonte for the second time in four games.

News: Venable is out of the lineup Saturday against the Pirates. Impact: Manager Bud Black has rid his lineup of lefty bats against southpaw Francisco Liriano, spelling Venable with Abraham Almonte in center field. Venable got off to a great start this month, recording multiple hits in each of his first four games, and he'll likely continue to see near-everyday time moving forward.(RotoWire, )
