Guardians' Will Benson on bench Thursday

Cleveland Guardians outfielder Will Benson is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Garrett Hill and the Detroit Tigers.

What It Means:

Benson worked as the Guardians' designated hitter in Wednesday's win, but he's returning to the bench as the club tries to complete a sweep of the Tigers on Thursday afternoon. Jose Ramirez will shift into the designated hitter role while Tyler Freeman enters the lineup to play third base and bat seventh.

Freeman has a $2,100 salary on Thursday and numberFire’s models project him for 8.0 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Guardians’ implied total (4.63) is No. 6 out of 16 active teams today. The game has the weakest park factor for batters among Thursday's seven games.
