Patrick Wisdom riding pine Friday for Cubs
Chicago Cubs third baseman Patrick Wisdom is not in the starting lineup for Friday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Zac Gallen and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Wisdom is grabbing a seat after starting the last five games. Matt Duffy (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list and is starting at third base in Friday's matinee. Duffy's return threatens to take playing time away from Wisdom over the second half of the season.
Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the Cubs have an inviting implied total of 5.3 runs on Friday afternoon. Gallen is registering a 27.3 strikeout percentage with an 11.2 walk percentage this season.
