Chad Pinder at DH for Athletics against White Sox

Oakland Athletics infielder/outfielder Chad Pinder will start on Tuesday in Game 1 against right-hander Lucas Giolito and the Chicago White Sox.

What It Means:

Pinder will hit eighth and serve as the Athletics' designated hitter. He got a tune-up in on Sunday in the regular-season finale after missing nearly two weeks with a right hamstring strain. Khris Davis will be available off the bench.

Pinder averaged 6.5 FanDuel points per start during the regular season. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Athletics currently have an implied total of 3.6 runs.
