Lucas Duda on bench as Royals visit Atlanta
Kansas City Royals first baseman Lucas Duda is not starting on Tuesday versus left-hander Dallas Keuchel and the Atlanta Braves.
The Royals are without a designated hitter during this two-game set at SunTrust Park in Atlanta, so Duda is taking a seat while Cheslor Cuthbert covers first base and Jorge Soler starts in right field. Hunter Dozier is on the hot corner.
numberFire's models expect Duda to record 2 homers, 7 RBI, and 6 runs scored over the rest of the season.
