Ian Happ moved up a couple spots in Cubs' order on Friday

Chicago Cubs outfielder/second baseman Ian Happ is batting fifth on Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays.

What It Means:

A day after going 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs, Happ will move up to the five-hole against Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ while manning second base for the Cubs in Friday's series opener. Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, and Ben Zobrist will each move up one spot in the order, to second, third, and fourth, respectively.

The Cubs have an appealing implied total (4.99 runs) in a matchup with a strong park factor (1.025), so Happ could be worth a look on Friday. numberFire's models project him to score 9.2 FanDuel points at a cost of $2,800.

Blue Jays' Miguel Montero up to fifth in Friday's lineup

Toronto Blue Jays catcher Miguel Montero has been moved up to fifth in Friday's order against the Chicago Cubs.

What It Means:

After being activated from the disabled list on Wednesday, today will mark Montero's second straight start with Russell Martin (oblique) still out for the time being. In a revenge game of sorts, Montero will hit fifth against former teammate Jake Arrieta.

When hitting fifth this season, Montero is just 5-for-26 in 29 plate appearances. He'll look to turn that around with a projection of 7.9 points at $2,200 on FanDuel this afternoon.

Steve Pearce hitting cleanup for Blue Jays

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman/outfielder Steve Pearce is batting from the cleanup spot Friday against the Chicago Cubs.

What It Means:

Facing an NL opponent on the road today, the Blue Jays lose their usual four-hitter in designated hitter Kendrys Morales. Therefore, Pearce will slide up a spot to hit fourth against the Cubs' Jake Arrieta.

With a career .379 wOBA and .247 ISO from the cleanup spot, our models project Pearce for 8.8 FanDuel points at $3,500 on the early slate.

Toronto's Kendrys Morales not in lineup on Friday

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman/designated hitter Kendrys Morales is out of the lineup Friday versus the Chicago Cubs.

What It Means:

As the Blue Jays transition to an NL ballpark in Chicago, they'll forfeit their DH spot, meaning Kendrys Morales is out this afternoon.

After going 1-for-4 with a double in yesterday's game, Morales is projected for 6 dingers, 21 RBI and a .257 average the rest of the season.

Blue Jays' Nori Aoki is on the bench for Friday's matchup

Toronto Blue jays outfielder Nori Aoki is not in the lineup for Friday's road matchup with the Chicago Cubs.

What It Means:

Having spelled Jose Bautista on Thursday afternoon, Aoki will make way for Bautista's return to the lineup today in Chicago.

In his part-time role, our models like Aoki to add 21 hits, 7 RBI and 10 runs over the remainder of the 2017 season.
