Josh Smith on Rangers' bench Tuesday

Texas Rangers infielder/outfielder Josh Smith is not in the starting lineup on Tuesday against left-hander Patrick Sandoval and the Los Angeles Angels.

What It Means:

Bubba Thompson will move to left field while Leody Taveras replaces Smith in the lineup to play center field and hit eighth.

Taveras has a $2,200 salary on Tuesday and numberFire’s models project him for 8.2 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, Sandoval has the sixth-highest walk percentage this season (9.3%) among Tuesday's projected starters.
