Akil Baddoo on Tigers' bench Thursday
Detroit Tigers outfielder Akil Baddoo is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series opener against right-hander Louis Head and the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Tigers appear to be giving Baddoo a routine breather. Robbie Grossman is moving up into the leadoff spot while Eric Haase enters the lineup to play left field and hit fifth. Jeimer Candelario is cleaning up for Detroit.
numberFire’s models project Grossman for 14.1 FanDuel points and he has a $3,000 salary on Thursday’s slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Tigers have an implied total of 3.6 runs. Through Head's first 30 1/3 innings in the majors, the righty is registering a 22.7 strikeout percentage and a 7.6 walk percentage this season, with a 3.03 xERA and a .267 xwOBA.
