Shohei Ohtani sitting Thursday afternoon for Angels

Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against left-hander Martin Perez and the Texas Rangers.

What It Means:

The Angels are giving Ohtani a breather before he heads to the mound on Friday. Mike Trout will cover DH work on Thursday while Magneuris Sierra makes a start in center field and hits ninth.

Sierra has a $2,000 salary on Thursday and numberFire’s models project him for 7.4 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Angels’ implied total (3.68) is No. 16 in the majors today.
