FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Jake McCarthy joining Arizona bench Thursday afternoon

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Jake McCarthy is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against JT Brubaker and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

What It Means:

McCarthy will grab a seat after leading off Arizona's order in Wednesday's loss. Alek Thomas will take over at the top of the lineup while Jordan Luplow replaces McCarthy in left field and hits seventh.

Luplow has a $2,600 salary on Thursday and numberFire’s models project him for 10.8 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Diamondbacks’ implied total (4.53) is No. 9 out of 16 active teams today.
