Harold Castro held out of Tigers' lineup Friday

Detroit Tigers infielder Harold Castro is not in the starting lineup for Friday's series opener against left-hander Kris Bubic and the Kansas City Royals.

What It Means:

Castro had started the previous four contests at three different position for Detroit. He could potentially see regular playing time at second base while Isaac Paredes (hip) and Niko Goodrum (calf) are on the injured list. Miguel Cabrera is returning to first base in place of Castro on Friday and hitting cleanup. Eric Haase is hitting third after cleaning up last game.

numberFire’s models project Cabrera for 8.5 FanDuel points and he has a $2,600 salary on Friday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Tigers have an implied total of 5.2 runs. Among qualified pitchers this season, Bubic's xwOBA (.363) and xERA (5.80) both rank in the bottom eighth percentile.
