Vimael Machin idle for Athletics on Wednesday

Oakland Athletics infielder Vimael Machin is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday against right-hander Anibal Sanchez and the Washington Nationals.

What It Means:

Machin started the past five games. Sheldon Neuse will take over on the hot corner and hit seventh.

Neuse has a $2,100 salary on Wednesday and numberFire’s models project him for 8.2 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Athletics' implied total (4.32) is No. 10 in the majors today.
