Nomar Mazara sitting for Tigers Thursday afternoon

Detroit Tigers right fielder Nomar Mazara is not in the lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against left-hander Daniel Lynch and the Kansas City Royals.

What It Means:

Mazara has gone 1-for-12 with a triple and 4 strikeouts since being activated from the injured list. Robbie Grossman will cover right field while Mazara sits for the matinee. Akil Baddoo will bat ninth and start in left. Lynch will be making his third career start. The 24-year-old left-hander was pulled in the first frame last weekend after giving up eight runs in 2/3 of an inning.

numberFire’s models project Grossman for 12.8 FanDuel points and he has a $3,000 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Tigers have an implied total of 4.5 runs. Lynch
