Martin Maldonado starting at catcher for Astros on Wednesday

Houston Astros catcher Martin Maldonado will start and bat eighth against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday.

What It Means:

Maldonado will start behind the plate tonight with Brian McCann heading to the bench.

Our models project Maldonado for 6.4 FanDuel points at the cost of $4,000.

Ian Kinsler on Red Sox's bench in Game 4 Wednesday night

Boston Red Sox second baseman Ian Kinsler is out of the starting lineup in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series versus the Houston Astros on Wednesday.

What It Means:

Kinsler will be replaced at second base by Brock Holt. He finished 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Game 3 on Tuesday.

Kinsler is 4-for-20 (.200) with 2 doubles, 2 RBI, 1 steal, and 11 strikeouts in six games this postseason.

Eduardo Nunez (ankle) out of Red Sox's lineup versus Brewers in Game 4

Boston Red Sox infielder Eduardo Nunez (ankle) is out of the starting lineup in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series versus the Houston Astros on Wednesday.

What It Means:

Nunez made an early exit from Game 3 on Tuesday due to lingering discomfort in his right ankle. "I think defensively he's been battling as far as that first step," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday night. "He hasn't been able to push off." Rafael Devers will start at third base on Wednesday.

Nunez is 3-for-16 (.188) with 1 double, 1 RBI, 2 walks drawn, and 2 strikeouts in five games this season.

Houston's Brian McCann not in Wednesday's starting lineup

Houston Astros catcher Brian McCann is not starting on Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox.

What It Means:

McCann will receive the night off with Martin Maldonado starting behind the plate.

In the 2018 playoffs, McCann is hitless in six at-bats.

Brock Holt on second base for Red Sox versus Astros Wednesday

Boston Red Sox utility option Brock Holt is starting on Wednesday versus the Houston Astros in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series.

What It Means:

Holt will replace Ian Kinsler at second base and bat seventh versus Astros right-hander Charlie Morton. He is 4-for-10 with 1 home run, 1 triple, 1 double, 5 RBI, and 4 runs scored in three games this postseason, almost all of which came when he hit baseball's first playoff cycle against the New York Yankees in Game 3 of the ALDS.

numberFire's models project Holt to score 7.7 FanDuel points at a cost of $2,400 in Game 4.
