Ryan O'Hearn on Royals' bench Thursday
Kansas City Royals first baseman Ryan O'Hearn is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against left-hander Taylor Hearn and the Texas Rangers.
The Royals held the lefty-hitting O'Hearn out of the lineup against a southpaw in Tuesday's series opener and they are doing the same thing again for the finale. Salvador Perez is shifting into the designated hitter role while Sebastian Rivero replaces O'Hearn in the lineup. Rivero is starting at catcher and hitting ninth.
numberFire’s models project Rivero for 7.5 FanDuel points on Thursday, and he has a $2,000 salary.
