Ryan O'Hearn resting for Royals Thursday versus lefty

Kansas City Royals first baseman/right fielder Ryan O'Hearn is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against left-hander Carlos Rodon and the Chicago White Sox.

What It Means:

O'Hearn is getting a breather against the White Sox's southpaw. Carlos Santana is shifting from designated hitter to first base while Salvador Perez takes over at DH and Cam Gallagher starts at catcher.

numberFire’s models project Santana for 11.5 FanDuel points and he has a $2,900 salary on Thursday. Perez ($3,100) is projected for 13.5 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Royals have an implied total of 4.1 runs. Among Thursday's listed starters, Rodon is registering the best strikeout percentage this season (36.0).
