Kevin Kiermaier kept out of Tampa Bay lineup Thursday

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against right-hander Lance McCullers and the Houston Astros.

What It Means:

Kiermaier is taking a seat after starting the first two games of the series. Manuel Margot is covering center field while Austin Meadows returns to the lineup to play left field and hit fifth.

Meadows has a $3,300 salary on Thursday and numberFire's models project him for 12.3 FanDuel points. McCullers is registering a 27.3 strikeout percentage and an 11.3 walk percentage this season, with an xSLG and xISO that both rank in the top 10% of the league.
