FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Nick Castellanos resting Thursday for Phillies

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against rookie right-hander Javier Assad and the Chicago Cubs.

What It Means:

Castellanos went 3-for-4 on Wednesday, but he will sit for the day game after a night game. Matt Vierling will replace Castellanos in right field and hit ninth.

Castellanos has a $2,000 salary on Thursday and numberFire's models project him for 9.9 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Phillies' implied total (4.29) is second-highest in the majors today. Through his first 27 1/3 innings, Assad has recorded a 5.25 SIERA with a 13.6% walk rate and an 18.4% strikeout rate.
