News: Sanchez is not in the lineup for the third straight game Monday against the Reds. Impact: Sanchez has seen his playing time take a hit with the recent arrival of Ike Davis, who will be making his third straight start at first base Monday. Davis is expected to earn an opportunity to win the everyday first base job, and manager Clint Hurdle's recent lineup decisions have reflected this line of thinking.(RotoWire, )

News: Sanchez will sit for the second game in a row Sunday against the Brewers. Impact: The recent acquisition of Ike Davis effectively turns Sanchez back into a platoon player. As the right-handed hitter, Sanchez will see the smaller share of the starts, likely relegating his value primarily to NL-only leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Sanchez belted his third homer of the year Thursday, ringing a shot off the left-field foul pole at PNC Park. Impact: He's taken over the bulk of starts at first base with a hot streak. Sanchez is 2-for-11 with a homer against Friday starter Kyle Lohse. Until he cools off, look for the former Marlin to continue getting most of Pittsburgh's starts at first base.(RotoWire, )

News: Sanchez is 4 for 8 with two homers in the first two games of a series vs. the Reds. Impact: Sanchez is not known for power but a 1.064 OPS indicates that his time may be now. Let's see if he can keep it up.(STATS, 11:18am)

News: A day after smacking a pair of homers against a right-handed pitcher, Sanchez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double against righty Mike Leake on Tuesday. Impact: The first baseman is in the zone right now. Who knows how long his hot streak will last, but there's little doubt he'll be in the lineup in the rubber game of the series. Sanchez has two doubles in seven at-bats against Wednesday's starter for the Reds, Johnny Cueto.(RotoWire, )

News: Sanchez is in the lineup Monday against a right-handed pitcher for the second time in 2014. Impact: He'll bat seventh in Cincinnati against Homer Bailey. Sanchez holds a career .286 (4-for-14) batting average against the Reds' pitcher. A strong game Monday could earn him more playing time given that Travis Ishikawa has cooled off at the plate.(RotoWire, )
