Josh Naylor not in Guardians' Thursday lineup

Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Naylor is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against left-hander Jeffrey Springs and the Tampa Bay Rays.

What It Means:

The lefty-hitting Naylor will not start versus the Rays' southpaw. Gabriel Arias will move to first base while Jose Ramirez starts on third. Owen Miller will work as the Guardians' designated hitter and bat sixth.

Arias has a $2,000 salary on Thursday and numberFire’s models project him for 6.8 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Guardians’ implied total (3.16) is No. 16 in the majors today out of 20 active teams.
