Hanser Alberto on Royals' bench Thursday

Kansas City Royals infielder Hanser Alberto is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Paul Blackburn and the Oakland Athletics.

What It Means:

Adalberto Mondesi is moving to the hot corner in place of Alberto. Salvador Perez is serving as the Royals' designated hitter while Sebastian Rivero starts at catcher and hits ninth.

numberFire’s models project Mondesi for 12.9 FanDuel points and he has a $3,800 salary on Thursday’s slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Royals have an implied total of 4.8 runs. Through 22 1/3 innings this season, Blackburn is registering a 15.0 strikeout percentage and a 5.0 walk percentage this season, with a 4.89 xERA and a .334 xwOBA.
