Mike Tauchman moving to Cubs bench Wednesday

Chicago Cubs outfielder Mike Tauchman is not in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale against left-hander David Peterson and the New York Mets.

What It Means:

The left-handed hitting Tauchman will yield right field to Seiya Suzuki and leadoff responsibilities to Christopher Morel. Suzuki will start in right field and Morel will be the Cubs' designated hitter again.

numberFire’s models project Suzuki ($2,700) for 8.8 and Morel ($3,500) for 12.6 FanDuel points on Wednesday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cubs' implied total is 4.46 and the game total is 9.0. Peterson has a 5.65 ERA and 4.78 xERA this season, with a 44.0% hard-hit rate, 23.7% strikeout rate, and 9.6% walk rate.
