Paul Goldschmidt (back) sidelined for Cardinals Thursday

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is not in Thursday's lineup against right-hander Corbin Burnes and the Milwaukee Brewers due to lower back tightness.

What It Means:

Matt Carpenter will play first base and bat second in place of Goldschmidt. Tommy Edman will move to second base and Justin Williams will start in right and bat seventh.

numberFire’s models project Carpenter for 7.6 FanDuel points versus the Brewers and he has a salary of $2,200 on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cardinals' implied total (3.3 runs) is lowest out of the 18 teams playing Thursday.
