Matt Beaty on Dodgers' bench Thursday afternoon
Los Angeles Dodgers left fielder/first baseman Matt Beaty is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Johnny Cueto and the San Francisco Giants.
Beaty is just 3-for-21 (.143) since the All-Star break and he is out of the lineup for the second time in the past three games. A.J. Pollock is shifting to left field for Beaty on Thursday while Cody Bellinger moves to center field and hits cleanup. Albert Pujols is entering the lineup to play first base and bat sixth on Thursday afternoon.
numberFire’s models project Pollock for 11.9 FanDuel points and he has a $2,600 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Dodgers have an implied total of 4.4 runs. Cueto's walk percentage this season (4.6) is the best rate among Thursday's listed starters and ranks in the top sixth percent of the league.
