Nationals' Andrew Stevenson starting in place of Juan Soto (COVID-19)

Washington Nationals outfielder Andrew Stevenson is hitting ninth and starting in left field in Thursday's Opening Night matchup against right-hander Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees.

What It Means:

Stevenson is making the start in the first game of the season after Juan Soto was placed on the 10-day injured list with COVID-19. Stevenson went 11-for-30 with a triple and a double in limited action for the Nationals last season. Michael Taylor could also fill in while Soto is sidelined.

numberFire's models project Stevenson for 5.9 FanDuel points on Thursday. Per FanDuel Sportsbook, the Nationals are +140 underdogs.
