Kyle Schwarber sitting Thursday for Cubs
Chicago Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber is not starting in Thursday's series finale versus right-hander Joe Musgrove and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Tony Kemp is in left field and Victor Caratini is on cleanup duty. Schwarber and most of the other starters are taking a seat after the Cubs were officially eliminated from the playoff hunt on Wednesday.
numberFire's models expect Kemp to score 9.4 FanDuel points on Thursday. He's priced at $2,100. The Cubs have an implied total of 4.68 runs in a game with an over/under of 9.0 runs.
