Pirates' John Nogowski sitting Thursday
Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman John Nogowski is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against right-hander Freddy Peralta and the Milwaukee Brewers.

numberFire’s models project Evans for 7.4 FanDuel points and he has a $2,200 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Pirates have an implied total of 3.5 runs.
