Nick Solak starting Thursday for Texas

Texas Rangers infielder Nick Solak is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's series opener against left-hander Zac Lowther and the Baltimore Orioles.

What It Means:

Solak was held out of Wednesday's lineup as a breather. He is back on second base and batting sixth Thursday. Yonny Hernandez is moving to shortstop and dropping to the bottom of the order. Isiah Kiner-Falefa is batting second as the Rangers' designated hitter. Andy Ibanez is on third base in place of an idle Brock Holt.

numberFire’s models project Solak for 9.6 FanDuel points and he has a $2,800 salary on Thursday’s slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Rangers have an implied total of 4.7 runs. Through Lowther's first 19 2/3 innings in the majors, the rookie is registering a 19.4 strikeout percentage and an 11.2 walk percentage, with a 9.61 ERA and 1.83 WHIP.
