Dodgers' Miguel Vargas sitting Thursday afternoon

Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Miguel Vargas is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Jakob Junis and the San Francisco Giants.

What It Means:

Vargas made his MLB debut on Wednesday and went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI, and a stolen base. He certainly played well enough, but the Dodgers are going to hold the youngster out of the lineup for the day game after a night game. James Outman will take over at designated hitter and bat ninth while Joey Gallo makes his Dodgers debut. Gallo will start in left field and hit sixth.

Gallo has a $2,400 salary on Thursday and numberFire’s models project him for 9.0 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Dodgers have the fourth-highest implied total (4.68) in the majors on Thursday.
