Reds' Michael Papierski on bench in early game Thursday
Cincinnati Reds catcher Michael Papierski is not in the starting lineup against Roansy Contreras and the Pittsburgh Pirates in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader.
Papierski is yielding catching duties to Aramis Garcia following back-to-back starts while Garcia tended to an elbow injury. Papierski will likely return to the lineup for the later game on Thursday.
numberFire’s models project Garcia for 6.9 FanDuel points on Thursday, and he has a $2,100 salary. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Reds’ implied total (4.50) is tied for ninth in the majors on Thursday out of 24 teams.
