Thairo Estrada on second base Friday for Giants opener
San Francisco Giants infielder Thairo Estrada is starting at second base and batting seventh on Friday afternoon against right-hander Sandy Alcantara and the Miami Marlins.
Tommy La Stella (Achilles) is opening the season on the injured list, so Estrada should see ample opportunity to start the year. The Giants' full lineup for their first game of 2022: Mike Yastrzemski RF, Brandon Belt 1B, Darin Ruf DH, Joc Pederson LF, Brandon Crawford SS, Wilmer Flores 3B, Estrada 2B, Steven Duggar CF, Joey Bart C. Logan Webb is starting at pitcher for San Francisco.
numberFire's models project Estrada for 8.9 FanDuel points on Friday, and he has a $2,000 salary. Per our MLB Heat Map, the total in the Giants-Marlins game (7.5) is tied for the lowest in the majors on Friday.
