Tim Anderson taking seat Thursday afternoon for White Sox

Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Carlos Hernandez and the Kansas City Royals.

What It Means:

Anderson appears to be taking a routine breather in Thursday's matinee. Danny Mendick is covering shortstop while Andrew Vaughn plays second base. Adam Engel is playing left field and Billy Hamilton is making a start in center field.

Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the White Sox have the highest implied total in the majors on Thursday (5.4 runs). Among qualified pitchers this season, Hernandez's walk rate (15.9 percent) ranks in the bottom three percent and his hard hit rate (46.5 percent) ranks in the bottom seven percent.
