Nelson Cruz not in Twins' Opening Day lineup

Minnesota Twins designated hitter Nelson Cruz is not in the Opening Day lineup against right-hander Brandon Woodruff and the Milwaukee Brewers.

What It Means:

Cruz doesn't have a place in the lineup with the Twins beginning the year at Milwaukee in a National League park. His first chance to start will be next Monday against the Detroit Tigers. Here is Minnesota's full Opening Day lineup: Luis Arraez LF, Josh Donaldson 3B, Jorge Polanco 2B, Miguel Sano 1B, Max Kepler RF, Byron Buxton CF, Mitch Garver C, Andrelton Simmons SS, Kenta Maeda SP.

numberFire’s models project Arraez for 9.9 FanDuel points versus the Brewers and he has a salary of $2,300 on Opening Day. Per our MLB Heat Map, the over/under (7.0 runs) in the Twins-Brewers game is tied for second-lowest on the 14-game slate.
