J.T. Realmuto back in Phillies lineup Monday
Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto is in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against right-hander Jacob deGrom and the New York Mets.
Realmuto was held out of the lineup on Sunday and struck out as a pinch-hitter. He will replace Andrew Knapp behind the bag Monday and return to the cleanup spot. The veteran backstop went 2-for-4 with a double in each of his first two starts.
numberFire's models project Realmuto for 14.4 FanDuel points on Monday, most among all catchers, and he has a salary of $3,500. However, the Phillies have the lowest implied total (3.2 runs) out of the 26 teams playing Monday, per our MLB Heat Map.
