Bubba Thompson on Rangers' bench Thursday afternoon
Texas Rangers outfielder Bubba Thompson is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Michael Lorenzen and the Los Angeles Angels.
Thompson will take a seat after starting the past five games. Adolis Garcia will shift to right field in place of Thompson while Kole Calhoun enters the lineup to be the Rangers' designated hitter and No. 8 batter.
Calhoun has a $2,000 salary on Thursday and numberFire’s models project him for 8.9 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Rangers’ implied total (4.32) is fourth-best in the majors today.
