Esteury Ruiz leading off Monday for Athletics

Oakland Athletics outfielder Esteury Ruiz will start in left field and bat leadoff in Monday's series opener against right-hander Miles Mikolas and the St. Louis Cardinals.

What It Means:

Ruiz will replace JJ Bleday in left field and bat leadoff after he was held out of the last two lineups.

numberFire’s models project Ruiz ($3,000) for 8.5 FanDuel points on Monday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Athletics' implied total is 3.69 and the game total is 9.0. Mikolas has an underwhelming 4.88 xERA this season and his 16.5% strikeout rate ranks in the bottom 10th percentile of the majors.
