Willson Contreras on Cubs' bench for Friday matinee

Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras is not in the starting lineup for Friday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Zac Gallen and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

What It Means:

Contreras is yielding catching duties to Robinson Chirinos following four consecutive starts. Chirinos is catching for Zach Davies and hitting eighth. Rafael Ortega is filling in for Contreras at the top of the order.

Chirinos has the lowest salary on Friday's one-game afternoon slate ($4,000) and numberFire's models expect him to score the fewest FanDuel points among all hitters in the contest (6.9). Ortega, meanwhile, has a $4,000 salary and is projected for 10.1 FanDuel points, making him our best point-per-dollar value in the matchup among batters. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Cubs have an inviting implied total of 5.3 runs. Gallen is registering a 27.3 strikeout percentage with an 11.2 walk percentage this season.
