Francisco Lindor leading off for Mets in Monday opener

New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor will bat leadoff in Monday's series opener against left-hander Max Fried and the Atlanta Braves.

What It Means:

Lindor typically bats second but he's up a spot in place of Jeff McNeil (hamstring, injured list). He went 1-for-12 with 6 strikeouts in the Mets' weekend series against the Tampa Bay Rays, though the one hit was a home run. Pete Alonso will hit second on Monday, followed by Dominic Smith and then Kevin Pillar in the cleanup spot. Jonathan Villar will bat fifth and Jose Peraza will bat sixth.

numberFire’s models project Lindor for 9.7 FanDuel points and he has a $3,000 salary on Monday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Mets have an implied total of 3.6 runs.
