Shohei Ohtani back in Angels' lineup Monday
Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani is back in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against left-hander Sean Manaea and the Oakland Athletics.
Ohtani was held out of the past two lineups with the Angels playing in a National League park. He will bat second on Monday. Jared Walsh has been bumped to sixth after batting second on Sunday.
Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the Angels have an implied total of 3.7 runs, the fourth-lowest total on Monday's slate. Manaea has the third-best walk rate this season (5.8 percent) out of Monday's listed starters. Ohtani has a $4,300 salary on Monday and our models expect him to score 12.6 FanDuel points.
