Alex Verdugo absent from Boston's Monday lineup

Boston Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo is not in the starting lineup for Monday afternoon's series opener against left-hander J.A. Happ and the Minnesota Twins.

What It Means:

Verdugo will grab a seat while J.D. Martinez moves to right field. Kevin Plawecki will start behind the plate and bat ninth with Christian Vazquez playing designated hitter out of the two-hole.

numberFire’s models project Vazquez for 13.0 FanDuel points versus the Twins and he has a salary of $3,100 on Monday. Martinez ($4,000) is projected for 12.3 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Red Sox have an implied total of 4.4 runs and the Red Sox/Twins game has an over/under of 9.5 runs.
