FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Kelvin Gutierrez on Baltimore's bench Thursday

Baltimore Orioles infielder Kelvin Gutierrez is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against right-hander Jordan Montgomery and the New York Yankees.

What It Means:

The Orioles appear to be giving Gutierrez the day off amid a 1-for-14 slump at the plate. Ramon Urias is shifting to third base and Pat Valaika is covering second base. Richie Martin is returning to the lineup to play shortstop and hit ninth.

numberFire’s models project Urias for 10.0 FanDuel points and he has a $2,200 salary on Thursday’s slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Orioles have an implied total of 4.0 runs. Montgomery is registering a 23.7 strikeout percentage and a 7.9 walk percentage this season, with a 4.09 xERA and a .308 xwOBA.
