Miguel Cabrera taking seat Thursday for Tigers
Detroit Tigers first baseman/designated hitter Miguel Cabrera is not in the lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Nathan Eovaldi and the Boston Red Sox.
Cabrera is slashing a woeful .098/.179/.213 through 67 plate appearances this season. Jonathan Schoop will cover first base Thursday and Robbie Grossman will be Detroit's DH. Akil Baddoo will enter the lineup in left field and hit ninth.
numberFire’s models project Baddoo for 7.9 FanDuel points and he has a $2,400 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Tigers have a modest implied total of 3.6 runs, despite playing with the strongest park factor out of the eight stadiums hosting games on Thursday.
