C - BOS
Boston Red Sox catcher Reese McGuire will take over behind the plate to start Thursday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Connor Wong started each of the last two games even against a right-handed pitcher in Alek Manoah on Wednesday night. However, McGuire gets back into the lineup against righty Kevin Gausman on Thursday. McGuire is hitting a healthy .327 at the plate with four doubles while he searches for his first homer in his 19th appearance of the season.

McGuire was unable to build on the 6-for-9 line he accrued over his last three games. Thursday's dud performance is an anomaly and shouldn't deter fantasy managers from rostering him as a depth piece in deeper leagues.
