Spenser Watkins starting Tuesday for Athletics

Oakland Athletics right-handed pitcher Spenser Watkins will start on Tuesday against the St. Louis Cardinals.

What It Means:

Watkins will fill in after Freddy Tarnok was placed on the 15-day injured list with a Grade 2 calf strain. The Athletics claimed Watkins off waivers from the Houston Astros last week and this will be his first appearance of the season. The 30-year-old righty owns a 5.85 ERA and 1.51 WHIP over 105 1/3 career innings and 23 appearances (20 starts) in the majors.

numberFire's models project Watkins ($5,500) for 19.0 FanDuel points on Tuesday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cardinals have the fourth-highest implied total (5.56) on the board.
