Astros' Jake Meyers joining bench for ALDS Game 2 Friday afternoon

Houston Astros outfielder Jake Meyers is not in the starting lineup for ALDS Game 2 on Friday afternoon against right-hander Lucas Giolito and the Chicago White Sox.

What It Means:

Meyers went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored on Thursday in the Astros' victory over the White Sox in Game 1. He is taking a seat Friday afternoon in Game 2 while Chas McCormick enters the lineup to play center field and hit eighth. Michael Brantley is trading places with Yordan Alvarez and will go from left field to designated hitter, but Houston is leaving the rest of the lineup the same as they look to take a two-game lead.

numberFire's models project McCormick for 8.5 FanDuel points and he has a $2,300 salary on Friday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Astros have the highest implied total among the eight playoff teams on Friday with 4.13 runs.
