FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Justin Upton joining Angels' bench Tuesday

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Justin Upton is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's series opener against right-hander Spenser Watkins and the Baltimore Orioles.

What It Means:

Upton is taking a seat while Jo Adell covers left field. Juan Lagares is entering the lineup to play right field and hit ninth.

numberFire’s models project Lagares for 9.4 FanDuel points and he has a $2,100 salary on Tuesday’s slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Angels' implied total (5.5 runs) is the second-highest in the majors on Tuesday. Watkins is registering a 14.0 strikeout percentage (bottom 2% of the league) and an 8.9 walk percentage this season, with a 5.84 xERA (bottom 7%) and a .362 xwOBA (bottom 7%).
