Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Corbin Carroll is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday night’s matchup against the San Francisco Giants.

The move comes after Carroll batted out of the eighth spot to open up the series against San Francisco the day prior. San Francisco rolling out left-handed pitcher Erik Miller as Monday’s opener factored into the decision, D-backs manager Torey Lovullo told reporters Monday.

The skipper added that Carroll’s placement in that part of the order could become a pattern in the future against left-handed pitching. On Tuesday, San Francisco is rolling out another lefty in Kyler Harrison.

The struggling Carroll had been up in the D-backs’ batting order the past four weeks following a 10-game span from April 24-May 7 of batting seventh or eighth.

Consistency has eluded Carroll in a season where he’s slashing .192/.280/.281 with just two home runs and a .561 OPS.

Leading off for Arizona is second baseman Ketel Marte. He’s followed up by catcher Gabriel Moreno and outfielder Lourdes Gurriel Jr.

Blaze Alexander is getting the nod at designated hitter and will bat eighth in the order.
