Kurt Suzuki sitting for Angels on Friday

Los Angeles Angels catcher Kurt Suzuki is not in the starting lineup for Friday's series opener against right-hander Louie Varland and the Minnesota Twins.

What It Means:

Max Stassi will catch Shohei Ohtani and hit eighth. Suzuki and Matt Thaiss are both out of the lineup.

Stassi has a $2,100 salary on Friday and numberFire’s models project him for 8.9 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Angels’ implied total (3.84) is No. 16 in the majors today and the game over/under (7.0) is tied for the lowest total on the board.
