Patrick Wisdom back on Cubs bench Thursday

Chicago Cubs infielder Patrick Wisdom is not in the lineup for Thursday's series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

What It Means:

Wisdom started at designated hitter in Thursday's series finale against the Detroit Tigers and went 0-for-2 with a strikeout. Seiya Suzuki will shift to DH on Thursday while Mike Tauchman returns to right field and bats ninth.

numberFire’s models project Suzuki ($2,900) for 10.1 and Tauchman ($3,000) for 8.4 FanDuel points on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cubs' implied total is 4.97 and the game total is 9.0. The Pirates are expected to use lefty Rob Zastryzny as an opener and right-hander Andre Jackson in bulk relief on Thursday.
