Jarren Duran sitting again Thursday for Red Sox

Boston Red Sox outfielder Jarren Duran is not in the lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against left-hander Patrick Corbin and the Washington Nationals.

What It Means:

The Nationals are starting another southpaw on Thursday, so the left-handed hitting Duran is absent for a second straight game. The Red Sox are starting Masataka Yoshida, Rob Refsnyder, and Adam Duvall across the outfield Thursday afternoon.

Duvall is one of numberFire’s top point-per-dollar values among batters on Thursday. He has a $3,000 salary and our models project him for 13.9 FanDuel points. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Red Sox's implied total is 5.40, second-highest on the board, and the game total is 9.5. Corbin has a 4.85 ERA and 6.42 xERA (bottom 3rd percentile of MLB) this season, with a 45.1% hard-hit rate (bottom 10th), 15.0% strikeout rate (bottom 4th), and 7.2% walk rate.
