Gary Sanchez sitting for Yankees versus Rays
New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Luis Patino and the Tampa Bay Rays.
Sanchez is taking a seat for the day game after starting the previous three contests. Kyle Higashioka is hitting eighth and catching for Gerrit Cole in his first start since returning from the COVID-19 list.
numberFire’s models project Higashioka for 8.9 FanDuel points and he has a $2,100 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Yankees have an implied total of 3.9 runs and the over/under for the game is a modest 7.5 runs.
