Austin Wells absent for Yankees Thursday

New York Yankees catcher Austin Wells is not in the lineup for Thursday's series finale against right-hander Jose Berrios and the Toronto Blue Jays.

What It Means:

Wells hit his first big-league homer on Wednesday night, but he will take a seat for Thursday's finale. Ben Rortvedt will catch for Gerrit Cole and bat ninth.

Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the Yankees' implied total is a deflated 3.74 and the game total is a pitcher-friendly 7.0. Berrios has a strong walk rate (6.7%) and hard-hit rate (35.3%) this season, with a mediocre strikeout rate (22.9%).
