Kevin Newman batting leadoff in Pirates' Wednesday lineup

Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Kevin Newman is starting in Wednesday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

What It Means:

Newman will operate the shortstop position after Oneil Cruz was chosen as Pittsburgh's designated hitter, Miguel Andujar was moved to left field, and Bryan Reynold was given a breather.

In a matchup against left-hander Matthew Liberatore, our models project Newman to score 8.2 FanDuel points at the salary of $2,300.
