Ronald Guzman (hamstring) starting for Rangers on Thursday

Texas Rangers first baseman Ronald Guzman (hamstring) is back in action for Thursday's game against right-hander Cristian Javier and the Houston Astros.

What It Means:

Guzman will man first base and bat seventh in his first action since being pulled from Sunday's game due to right hamstring tightness. Sherten Apostel will man third base and Isiah Kiner-Falefa will cover shortstop after Anderson Tejeda was scratched due to a skin infection under his arm.

numberFire's models expect Guzman to score 7.7 FanDuel points and he has a salary of $2,600. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Rangers currently have an implied total of 3.8 runs on Thursday.
