Clint Frazier batting ninth for Yankees in Opening Day matinee
New York Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier will start in left field and bat ninth on Opening Day against left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Toronto Blue Jays.
Frazier will record his first Opening Day start while Brett Gardner begins the year as the Yankees' fourth outfielder. Frazier figures to be able to work his way up from the No. 9 spot if he can replicate last year's success when he recorded a .905 OPS with 8 dingers and 26 RBI over 160 plate appearances. The Pinstripes' full Opening Day lineup: DJ LeMahieu 2B, Aaron Judge RF, Aaron Hicks CF, Giancarlo Stanton DH, Gleyber Torres SS, Gio Urshela 3B, Gary Sanchez C, Jay Bruce 1B, Frazier LF. Gerrit Cole will be on the hill for New York.
numberFire’s models project Frazier for 9.4 FanDuel points versus the Blue Jays and he has a salary of $3,000 on Opening Day. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Yankees have the fifth-highest implied total (4.5 runs) of the 26 teams playing Thursday.
