Giancarlo Stanton hitting fifth for Yankees in Game 1 versus Indians

New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton is in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the Wild Card Round on Tuesday against right-hander Shane Bieber and the Cleveland Indians.

What It Means:

Stanton will bat fifth to start his third trip to the postseason. He slashed .250/.387/.500 during the regular season while being limited to about a third of the games by various injuries. Luke Voit will play first base and D.J. LeMahieu will move to second while Tyler Wade sits. Gio Urshela will drop a spot and bat sixth. Brett Gardner will start in left field and hit eighth.

numberFire's models expect Stanton to score 10.0 FanDuel points on Tuesday with a salary of $3,800. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Yankees currently have an implied total of 3.3 runs.
