Xander Bogaerts on Red Sox's bench Monday
Boston Red Sox infielder Xander Bogaerts is not in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against right-hander Thomas Hatch and the Toronto Blue Jays.
Bogaerts will take a breather after starting the previous seven games and going 5-for-26 (.192) in that span. Enrique Hernandez will cover shortstop and Michael Chavis will enter the lineup to bat ninth and play second base.
numberFire’s models project Chavis for 9.8 FanDuel points and he has a $2,100 salary on Monday. Hernandez ($3,400) is projected for 13.9 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Red Sox have the highest implied total in the majors on Monday (5.9 runs).
