Eric Hosmer held out for Red Sox on Thursday

Boston Red Sox first baseman Eric Hosmer is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against right-hander JT Brubaker and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

What It Means:

The Red Sox appear to be giving Hosmer a routine breather. Bobby Dalbec will take over on first base and bat eighth.

Dalbec is numberFire's second-best point-per-dollar value among batters on Thursday's Main slate. He has a $2,400 salary and our models project him for 12.2 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Red Sox's implied total (4.60) is third-highest out of 10 teams on the Main slate.
