FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Avisail Garcia (back) on Brewers' sidelines Wednesday afternoon

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Avisail Garcia (back) is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's matinee against right-hander Matt Manning and the Detroit Tigers.

What It Means:

Garcia was removed from Tuesday's game against the Tigers with lower-back spasms and he will remain sidelined Wednesday afternoon. Brewers manager Craig Counsell said after Tuesday's game that Garcia's lower-back spasms aren't a serious concern, so look for the outfielder to be back out there for Friday's series opener against the Chicago Cubs. Jace Peterson is covering right field and hitting sixth Wednesday afternoon.

numberFire’s models project Peterson for 12.2 FanDuel points and he has a $2,000 salary on Wednesday’s slate, which makes him our top point-per-dollar value among all active hitters. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Brewers have an implied total of 5.0 runs. Manning is registering a 12.9 strikeout percentage that ranks in the bottom 1% and a .290 xBA that ranks in the bottom 4% of the league this season.
