Blake Rutherford absent Wednesday afternoon for Washington

Washington Nationals outfielder Blake Rutherford is not in the lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Chicago White Sox.

What It Means:

Rutherford started and went 0-for-2 on Tuesday night after being recalled from the minors earlier in the day. Jake Alu will replace Rutherford in left field and bat eighth.

numberFire’s models project Alu ($2,400) for 6.9 FanDuel points on Wednesday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Nationals' implied total is 4.69 and the game total is 9.0. Jesse Scholtens is expected to be the White Sox's primary pitcher on Wednesday and his strikeout rate (15.7%) is in the bottom 6th percentile of qualified pitchers this season.
