Darin Ruf on first base Thursday for Mets

New York Mets first baseman Darin Ruf is in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against left-hander Max Fried and the Atlanta Braves.

What It Means:

Ruf will start on first base and bat fifth while Pete Alonso works as the designated hitter. Dan Vogelbach is idle against the Braves' southpaw.

Ruf has a $2,600 salary on Thursday and numberFire’s models project him for 7.4 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Mets’ implied total (3.42) is fourth-lowest on Thursday's Main slate out of 10 teams. The over/under for the game (6.5) is the lowest of the five contests.
