Cubs' Albert Almora starting in center for Game 5

Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert Almora is getting the start in center field for Thursday's Game against the Washington Nationals.

What It Means:

Almora will draw his first start in the NLDS as Ben Zobrist sits and Jon Jay moves to left field for Thursday's pivotal game. Meanwhile, Almora will hit fifth against lefty Gio Gonzalez.

Having gone just 1-for-15 in his postseason career, Almora isn't the most statistically-obvious choice for manager Joe Maddon. However, we project him for 8.9 FanDuel points at a price of $2,100 in the matchup.
