Andrelton Simmons sitting for Twins Wednesday afternoon
Minnesota Twins shortstop Andrelton Simmons is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's game against right-hander Luis Castillo and the Cincinnati Reds.
The Twins appear to be giving Simmons a breather for the day game after a night game. Jorge Polanco is covering shortstop and Nick Gordon is shifting in to second base. Max Kepler is in center field and Trevor Larnach is returning to right. Luis Arraez is in the cleanup spot, followed by Miguel Sano and Larnach.
numberFire’s models project Polanco for 10.6 FanDuel points and he has a $3,500 salary on Wednesday. Kepler ($3,700) is expected to produce 10.7 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Twins have an implied total of 3.9 runs. Castillo is registering a 23.0 strikeout percentage with a 10.1 walk percentage this season.
