Elehuris Montero on Colorado bench Wednesday

Colorado Rockies infielder Elehuris Montero is not in the lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Seth Lugo and the San Diego Padres.

What It Means:

Montero will take a breather after going 0-for-3 with 3 strikeouts on Tuesday. Kris Bryant will move to first base and cleanup duty Wednesday afternoon while Charlie Blackmon starts at designated hitter and bats leadoff for Colorado. Nolan Jones will hit third and Ezequiel Tovar will bat sixth after leading off last game.

Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the Rockies' implied total is 3.34, fourth-lowest on the board, and the game total is 8.5. Lugo has an elite walk rate this season (5.7%), but he gives up a lot of hard hits (44.0%) and has a middling strikeout rate (23.1%).
