Max Kepler (shoulder) starting for Twins in Game 1 Friday
Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (shoulder) is starting Friday versus left-hander James Paxton and the New York Yankees in Game 1 of the American League Division Series.
It's Kepler's first start in three weeks due to a shoulder issue and it's not clear how healthy he is. He's replacing Jake Cave in center field and hitting sixth.
numberFire's models expect Kepler to score 11.5 FanDuel points on Friday. He's priced at $3,500. The Twins have an implied total of 3.67 runs as underdogs on the road against the Yankees in Game 1.
