Austin Meadows moving to Rays' bench Monday

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Austin Meadows is not in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against right-hander Chris Flexen and the Seattle Mariners.

What It Means:

Meadows is taking a maintenance day after starting five consecutive contests. Randy Arozarena is replacing Meadows in the outfield on Monday and Nelson Cruz is moving up to cover the second spot in the order.

numberFire’s models project Arozarena for 10.3 FanDuel points and he has a $3,500 salary on Monday. Cruz ($3,700) is projected for 13.1 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Rays have an implied total of 5.2 runs. Flexen's strikeout rate this season (15.5 percent) ranks in the bottom four percent of the league, but his walk rate (4.9 percent) is in the 92nd percentile.
