Rays' Taylor Walls on bench Friday

Tampa Bay Rays infielder Taylor Walls is not in the starting lineup for Friday's series opener against right-hander Zach Plesac and the Cleveland Indians.

What It Means:

Walls is out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games. Wander Franco is shifting to shortstop and hitting sixth on Friday while Yandy Diaz plays the hot corner and hits fifth. Ji-Man Choi is entering the lineup to hit second and man first base.

numberFire’s models project Franco for 8.1 FanDuel points and he has a $2,900 salary on Friday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Rays have an implied total of 4.7 runs. Plesac's strikeout rate this season (16.4 percent) ranks in the bottom eight percent of the league, but his walk rate (4.7 percent) is in the top sixth percentile.
