Yandy Diaz sitting Monday for Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay Rays infielder Yandy Diaz is not in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against right-hander Lance Lynn and the Chicago White Sox.
Diaz will take a seat as Ji-Man Choi returns to first base in his first game back from the injured list for a groin strain. Diaz went 1-for-11 with an RBI, a run, 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts during the Rays' weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles.
numberFire’s models project Choi for 9.4 FanDuel points and he has a $2,500 salary on Monday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Rays have an implied total of 3.8 runs. Lynn is registering a 27.7 strikeout percentage and 6.5 walk percentage this season.
