Manuel Margot on Tampa Bay's bench Monday
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Manuel Margot is not in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against right-hander Lance Lynn and the Chicago White Sox.
Margot will grab a seat after playing right field and batting leadoff on Sunday. The Rays will start Brandon Lowe, Kevin Kiermaier, and Brett Phillips across the outfield for Monday's matchup. Lowe will bat leadoff.
numberFire’s models project Lowe for 13.9 FanDuel points and he has a $2,600 salary on Monday. Lowe is currently the fifth-best point-per-dollar option among hitters on Monday's slate. 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.
