Vimael Machin idle for Athletics on Wednesday

Oakland Athletics infielder Vimael Machin is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday against left-hander Robbie Ray and the Seattle Mariners.

What It Means:

The lefty-hitting Machin is out of the lineup for the second time in three games as the Athletics take on another southpaw. Sheldon Neuse will replace Machin on third base and bat seventh.

Neuse is averaging 5.8 FanDuel points per game this season. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Athletics’ implied total (3.13) is second-lowest in the majors today.
