Josh Donaldson joining Twins' bench Wednesday
Minnesota Twins third baseman Josh Donaldson is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Wily Peralta and the Detroit Tigers.
Donaldson is getting a maintenance day after playing in back-to-back extra-inning games on Monday and Tuesday. Willians Astudillo is covering third base while Miguel Sano plays first and Max Kepler covers the designated hitter role. Trevor Larnach is making a start in right field and hitting fifth.
numberFire’s models project Larnach for 9.6 FanDuel points and he has a $2,800 salary on Wednesday. Sano ($3,000) is projected for 11.7 FanDuel points and Astudillo ($2,400) is projected for 8.4. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Twins have the third-highest implied total in the majors on Wednesday (5.2 runs).
