Rays leaving Manuel Margot out of Opening Day lineup in Miami
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Manuel Margot is not in the lineup for Opening Day against right-hander Sandy Alcantara and the Miami Marlins.
Margot and Joey Wendle are both out of the lineup as the Rays start the season in a National League park. Yoshi Tsutsugo will cover first base and bat leadoff in place of Ji-Man Choi (knee surgery). Here is the full Opening Day roster for the defending American League champs: Tsutsugo 1B, Austin Meadows LF, Randy Arozarena RF, Brandon Lowe 2B, Yandy Diaz 3B, Kevin Kiermaier CF, Willy Adames SS, Mike Zunino C, Tyler Glasnow SP.
numberFire’s models project Tsutsugo for 12.4 FanDuel points versus the Marlins and he has a salary of $2,600 on Opening Day. Tsutsugo is our No. 2 overall value among all batters on Thursday's 13-game slate.
