Cesar Hernandez sitting for Nationals on Wednesday

Washington Nationals infielder Cesar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Bryce Elder and the Atlanta Braves.

What It Means:

Josh Palacios will replace Hernandez in left field and hit eighth.

Palacios has a $2,000 salary on Wednesday and numberFire’s models project him for the lowest output among all hitters at 4.6 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Nationals’ implied total (3.36) is tied for fifth-lowest in the majors today.
