Leody Taveras sitting for Rangers against Angels

Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Alex Cobb and the Los Angeles Angels.

What It Means:

Taveras is taking a seat after starting the previous five games. D.J. Peters is replacing Taveras in center field and hitting sixth.

numberFire's models project Peters for 9.0 FanDuel points and he has a $2,200 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Rangers have the fourth-lowest implied total (3.8 runs) in the majors. Cobb is registering a 25.2 strikeout percentage with an 8.4 walk percentage this season.
