FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Tommy La Stella sitting Thursday for San Francisco

San Francisco Giants infielder Tommy La Stella is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Pierce Johnson and the San Diego Padres.

What It Means:

La Stella appears to be receiving a routine breather. Wilmer Flores is replacing La Stella on second base and batting seventh. LaMonte Wade is moving into the leadoff spot.

numberFire’s models project Flores for 9.8 FanDuel points and he has a $2,300 salary on Thursday’s slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Giants have an implied total of 4.5 runs. Johnson is registering a 32.1 strikeout percentage this season that ranks in the top 8% of the league, with a 3.62 xERA and a .291 xwOBA.
