Brandon Marsh on Phillies' bench in Wild Card opener

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Brandon Marsh is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the Wild Card round against left-hander Jose Quintana and the St. Louis Cardinals.

What It Means:

The Phillies will keep the lefty-hitting Marsh out of the lineup against the Cardinals' southpaw. Matt Vierling will start in center field again and hit ninth.

Vierling has a $2,100 salary on Friday and numberFire’s models project him for 8.3 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Phillies have an implied total of 3.26 and the over/under for the game is 6.5.
