Jason Heyward joining Cubs' bench Wednesday

Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against right-hander Alec Mills and the Colorado Rockies.

What It Means:

Heyward appears to be receiving a routine breather. Ian Happ, who homered and scored 3 runs on Tuesday, is covering right field Wednesday and hitting third. Johneshwy Fargas is entering the lineup to bat seventh and start in left field.

numberFire’s models project Happ for 11.6 FanDuel points and he has a $3,000 salary on Wednesday. Fargas ($2,600) is projected for 8.7 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cubs have an implied total of 4.8 runs and the over/under for the game (11.0 runs) is the highest total in the majors on Wednesday. Mills is registering a 20.9 strikeout percentage and an 8.5 walk percentage this season.
