Jonathan Schoop (back) scratched Wednesday, Harold Castro on first for Detroit

Detroit Tigers infielder Jonathan Schoop has been scratched from Wednesday's lineup against left-hander J.A. Happ and the Minnesota Twins due to back tightness.

What It Means:

Schoop has been mentioned in trade discussions, but Wednesday's absence is due to injury. Harold Castro has been added to the lineup to bat eighth and play first base. Willi Castro is covering second.

numberFire’s models project Harold for 7.3 FanDuel points and he has a $2,100 salary on Wednesday. Willi is projected for 11.0 FanDuel points and offers superior value with a $2,300 salary. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Tigers have an implied total of 5.0 runs. Happ is registering career-lows in xSLG (.503) and wOBA (.376) this season, and the left-hander ranks in the bottom sixth percentile of qualified pitchers in both categories.
