Yuli Gurriel idle Thursday for Astros
Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series opener against right-hander Glenn Otto and the Texas Rangers.
The Astros appear to be giving Gurriel a routine breather. Aledmys Diaz is shifting to first base in place of Gurriel while Alex Bregman returns to the lineup to handle the hot corner and bat second.
Diaz is currently numberFire's fifth-best point-per-dollar value among hitters on Tuesday. He has a $2,100 salary and our models project him for 10.3 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Astros have the third-highest implied total (4.68) in the majors on Thursday.
