Brent Rooker (paternity) out Monday for Minnesota

Minnesota Twins outfielder Brent Rooker (paternity) is not in the starting lineup for Monday afternoon's game against rookie right-hander Luis Gil and the New York Yankees.

What It Means:

The Twins placed Rooker on the paternity list ahead of Monday's matchup and the new father will spend up to three days away from the club. Rob Refsnyder is shifting to left field in place of Rooker and hitting seventh. Max Kepler is returning to the lineup to play right field and bat fifth.

numberFire’s models project Refsnyder for 8.3 FanDuel points on Monday and he has an $4,000 salary on the one-game matinee slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Twins have an implied total of 4.3 runs. Gil is registering a 29.3 strikeout percentage and a 17.1 walk percentage this season, with a 2.73 xERA and a .254 xwOBA.
