Josh Bell back on first base Monday for Nationals
Washington Nationals first baseman Josh Bell will start in Monday's series opener against right-hander Adbert Alzolay and the Chicago Cubs.
Bell will return to first base in place of Ryan Zimmerman and hit third after a breather. He is hitting just .156/.219/.333 for the season but is 4-for-13 with a homer, a double, 5 RBI, and 4 runs over his last three games.
numberFire’s models project Bell for 8.5 FanDuel points and he has a $3,300 salary on Monday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Nationals have an implied total of 3.7 runs. Alzolay owns the fourth-highest strikeout rate (29.3) and fourth-lowest walk rate (5.7 percent) among the 18 listed starters Monday.
