Kris Bryant on Cubs' bench Thursday afternoon
Chicago Cubs third baseman/left fielder Kris Bryant is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Luis Castillo and the Cincinnati Reds.
Bryant appears to be getting a routine breather in the day game after a night game. Ian Happ is replacing Bryant in left field and hitting fifth. Anthony Rizzo is also out of the lineup as trade rumors continue to swirl.
numberFire’s models project Happ for 8.3 FanDuel points and he has a $2,200 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cubs have an implied total of 3.6 runs. Castillo is registering a 22.5 strikeout percentage with a 10.1 walk percentage this season.
