Alec Burleson left off Cardinals' Wild Card roster

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Alec Burleson did not make the Wild Card roster.

What It Means:

The Cardinals opted to bring Nolan Gorman back on board in lieu of Burleson. Lars Nootbaar will start in right field in Game 1 on Friday versus right-hander Zack Wheeler and the Philadelphia Phillies. Albert Pujols will be the designated hitter and bat second.

Pujols has a $3,000 salary on Friday and numberFire’s models project him for 12.1 FanDuel points. Nootbaar has a $2,600 salary and is projected for 10.9 FanDuel points. They are both considered top-five point-per-dollar values among batters today. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cardinals have an implied total of 3.24 and the over/under for the game is 6.5.
