Alex McRae starting on Friday for Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Alex McRae is getting the start on Friday in the team's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

What It Means:

McRae is filling in for Joe Musgrove, who was scratched due to foot discomfort. The former was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, and now he'll take the hill against the division-leading and wicked-hot Cardinals.

Our models project McRae for 5.0 innings pitched, 4.1 strikeouts, 2.4 earned runs and 22.8 FanDuel points this evening.
