J.D. Martinez (ankle) out for Red Sox in Wild Card Game
Boston Red Sox designated hitter J.D. Martinez (ankle) is not on the roster for the AL Wild Card Game against right-hander Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees on Tuesday.
Martinez's left ankle is "significantly swollen," but he's not on crutches. His status is uncertain for the ALDS if the Red Sox advance. Kyle Schwarber is serving as Boston's DH in Tuesday's elimination game. Alex Verdugo, Enrique Hernandez, and Hunter Renfroe are starting across the outfield. Christian Arroyo is starting on second base and batting ninth.
numberFire's models project Schwarber to score 12.9 FanDuel points, tied with Anthony Rizzo for most among hitters. He has a $7,500 salary on Tuesday's one-game slate. Arroyo is projected for 7.9 FanDuel points with a $4,000 salary.
