Spencer Horwitz on Blue Jays bench Wednesday

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Spencer Horwitz is not in the lineup on Wednesday against left-hander Jordan Montgomery and the Texas Rangers.

What It Means:

Horwitz went 2-for-5 with a double and 2 runs scored in the first two games of the series. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will be on first base Wednesday and Bo Bichette will handle designated hitter duty. Ernie Clement will start at shortstop and hit eighth. Davis Schneider will move into the cleanup role in place of Horwitz.

numberFire’s models project Clement ($2,200) for 5.7 FanDuel points on Wednesday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Blue Jays' implied total is 4.17 and the game total is 8.0. Montgomery has a 3.62 ERA and middling 4.20 xERA this season, with a mediocre 38.8% hard-hit rate, a weak 21.3% strikeout rate, and a strong 6.4% walk rate.
