5 days agoMinnesota Twins designated hitter Nelson Cruz (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Indians. Cruz played during both games of the doubleheader on Saturday, so he'll get the day off here. Luiz Arraez will bat leadoff and serve as the designated hitter versus righty Shane Bieber. This is a solid spot for Arraez, so DFS should take notice. He could be a cheap option for Sunday's contests.--Andy Webb - RotoBaller
