Matt Dominguez is playing first base and hitting sixth for Wednesday's showdown with the White Sox.

Dominguez was called up on Tuesday to help serve as a right-handed bat in lieu of the suspended Chris Colabello (performance enhancing drugs). He sees a start on Wednesday against left-hander Jose Quintana, though manager John Gibbons indicated that moving forward, Justin Smoak will likely see the bulk of starts at first. Dominguez held a nice .311/.333/.475 triple-slash with 14 RBI through 17 games at Triple-A Buffalo, but as a career .233 hitter in the majors, offers little fantasy upside.
