Tampa Bay Rays first baseman Ji-Man Choi is starting Friday afternoon in Game 1 of the American League Division Series versus right-hander Justin Verlander and the Houston Astros.
Choi is on first base and batting third. Yandy Diaz is at designated hitter out of the cleanup spot. Tommy Pham is in left field and Austin Meadows is in right. Avisail Garcia is sitting.
numberFire's models expect Choi to score 10.2 FanDuel points on Friday. He's priced at $2,900. The Rays are heavy underdogs on the road against Verlander and their implied total of 3.03 runs is the lowest on Friday's four-game slate.
