FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Nolan Schanuel sitting for Angels Thursday afternoon

Los Angeles Angels first baseman Nolan Schanuel is not in the lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Zach Eflin and the Tampa Bay Rays.

What It Means:

The Angels appear to be giving Schanuel a breather in the day game after a night game. Brandon Drury will move to first base in place of Schanuel and Randal Grichuk (head) will return to bat leadoff. C.J. Cron will start at designated hitter and bat fifth.
