Shohei Ohtani not expected to start Thursday

Angels manager Brad Ausmus indicated that he will stick with the same lineup on Thursday following Wednesday's postponement, meaning Shohei Ohtani will again be on the bench. (Rhett Bollinger on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Ohtani had to leave Monday's game after getting hit in the finger by a pitch, but he played on Tuesday, so Ausmus is likely just looking to give him a game off. Managers in leagues with daily lineups should take note.
