Nick Castellanos out of Cubs' lineup versus Pirates

Chicago Cubs right fielder Nick Castellanos is not starting in Thursday's series finale versus right-hander Joe Musgrove and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

What It Means:

The Cubs are resting most of their starters after being officially eliminated from playoff contention on Wednesday. Ian Happ is moving to right field in place of Castellanos and hitting second. David Bote is making the start on third base and batting sixth.

numberFire's models believe Bote offers nice DFS value on Thursday, as he's priced at $2,200 and the metrics have him down for 10.8 FanDuel points. Happ is projected for 12.3 FP and costs $2,600. The Cubs have an implied total of 4.68 runs in a game with an over/under of 9.0 runs.
