Phillip Evans in right field for Pirates Friday afternoon
Pittsburgh Pirates infielder/outfielder Phillip Evans will bat fifth and play right field in Friday afternoon's series opener against right-hander Zach Davies and the Chicago Cubs.
Evans is hitting .221 with 4 homers and 23 strikeouts through 109 plate appearances this season. He will replace Hunter Owen in right field on Friday afternoon.
numberFire’s models project Evans for 9.4 FanDuel points and he has a $2,300 salary on Friday. Davies' strikeout rate (14.2 percent) and walk rate (15.0 percent) are inviting for hitters, but per our MLB Heat Map, the Pirates only have an implied total of 3.5 runs.
