Joey Wendle on Tampa Bay's bench Friday

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

What It Means:

Wendle is yielding second base to Brandon Lowe after starting the last two contests. Lowe is leading off for a second straight game.

numberFire’s models project Lowe for 14.7 FanDuel points and he has a $3,500 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.
