DJ LeMahieu on Yankees' bench Thursday

New York Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against right-hander Chris Ellis and the Baltimore Orioles.

What It Means:

LeMahieu is moving to the bench after starting the previous six games. Gio Urshela is covering third base and batting ninth. Brett Gardner is in the leadoff spot. Tyler Wade is entering the lineup to play shortstop and bat eighth.

numberFire’s models project Gardner for 13.3 FanDuel points and he has a $2,400 salary on Thursday’s slate, which makes him our top point-per-dollar value among active hitters. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Yankees have the highest implied total (6.0 runs) in the majors on Thursday.
