Josh Donaldson joining Yankees' bench Thursday afternoon

New York Yankees infielder Josh Donaldson is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against left-hander Bruce Zimmerman and the Baltimore Orioles.

What It Means:

The Yankees appear to be giving Donaldson a routine breather following 10 straight starts. DJ LeMahieu is replacing Donaldson on third base and hitting leadoff. Aaron Hicks has been moved from the leadoff spot to the six-hole. Giancarlo Stanton is at designated hitter for Thursday's matinee.

numberFire’s models project LeMahieu for 13.5 FanDuel points on Thursday, and he has a $3,300 salary. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Yankees have the third-highest implied total (4.62) in the majors on Thursday.
