Yermin Mercedes on White Sox's bench for Thursday matinee

Chicago White Sox designated hitter Yermin Mercedes is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's lineup against right-hander Jose Berrios and the Minnesota Twins.

What It Means:

Mercedes has now started just once in the past eight games. Jose Abreu will bat third as the White Sox's designated hitter while Yasmani Grandal starts on first base. Zack Collins will catch for Carlos Rodon and hit ninth.

numberFire’s models project Abreu for 11.8 FanDuel points and he has a $3,100 salary on Thursday. Grandal ($3,000) is projected for 9.8 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the White Sox have an implied total of 4.3 runs. Berrios is registering a 26.5 strikeout percentage with a 6.4 walk percentage this season.
