Nate Eaton not in Royals' Thursday lineup

Kansas City Royals infielder Nate Eaton is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series opener against right-hander Luis Patino and the Tampa Bay Rays.

What It Means:

Hunter Dozier (paternity) will replace Eaton in right field and bat cleanup. After starting three consecutive contests, Eaton has now been held out two of the last three lineups.

Dozier has a $2,500 salary on Thursday and numberFire’s models project him for 10.6 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Royals’ implied total (3.25) is third-lowest on Thursday's Main slate out of 10 teams.
