William Contreras out of Braves' lineup for Thursday matinee
Atlanta Braves catcher William Contreras is not in the lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Ross Stripling and the Toronto Blue Jays.
Contreras homered on Wednesday to provide the Braves their only run of the contest. He will concede catching duties to Jeff Mathis for Thursday's matinee. Mathis will catch Charlie Morton and bat seventh.
numberFire’s models project Mathis for 10.9 FanDuel points and he has a $2,000 salary on Thursday. He is our third-best point-per-dollar option among all active hitters. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Braves' implied total (4.7 runs) is the fourth-highest on the board.
