Asdrubal Cabrera absent from Arizona's lineup Thursday afternoon
Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Kevin Gausman and the San Francisco Giants.
Cabrera appears to be getting a routine breather. Eduardo Escobar will move to the hot corner and hit third. Josh Rojas will play second base and Nick Ahmed will return to shortstop.
Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the Diamondbacks are the only club in the majors on Thursday with an implied total below 3.0 runs. Gausman is registering a 31.4 strikeout percentage and 5.8 walk percentage this season.
