MLB starting lineups: Monday, April 10th

Chicago White Sox vs. Minnesota Twins, 2:10 p.m. ET

A few absences on both sides today that make the under look like an appealing bet. Yoan Moncada is out again for Chicago, giving Hanser Alberto another start, while Oscar Colas appears to have locked down the right field job.

Byron Buxton gets a day off for Minnesota against tough righty Dylan Cease, which means that the red-hot Trevor Larnach finds himself batting leadoff. Carlos Correa was a late scratch with a back issue, while there’s still no Joey Gallo (side) either for the Twins.

New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Guardians, 6:10 p.m. ET

We have a Willie Calhoun sighting, as the recent call-up and Spring Training standout will hit fifth against Shane Bieber (we’re sure that Yankees fans will be very calm about Isiah Kiner-Falefa drawing a start at third over Oswaldo Cabrera).

Andres Gimenez has finally started to creep up the batting order, overtaking the slumping Josh Bell in the five hole.

Oakland Athletics vs. Baltimore Orioles, 6:35 p.m. ET

The Seth Brown injury means lots of playing time for Connor Capel in Oakland’s outfield, while Ryan Noda continues to hit near the top of the lineup against righties. Esteury Ruiz is back down at the bottom of the order.

It’s a day off for the struggling Gunnar Henderson, as Baltimore is giving Ramon Urias the start at third base ahead of their prized rookie. Chris McKenna, not Kyle Stowers, will start in right field.

Houston Astros vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, 6:35 p.m. ET

After a big game on Sunday against the Minnesota Twins, Chas McCormick looks to continue to solidify his hold on the leadoff spot for Houston.

Ke’Bryan Hayes shifts into the leadoff spot for the Pirates against the lefty Valdez, with Andrew McCutchen hitting third and Connor Joe drawing a start in left.

Boston Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays, 6:40 p.m. ET

No Adam Duvall for Boston, as the team waits to see whether he’ll require an IL stint for the wrist injury he suffered on Sunday against the Detroit Tigers. Southpaw specialist Rob Refsnyder will play center and bat fifth against lefty bulk man Josh Fleming.

Surprisingly there’s no Josh Lowe in the lineup for Tampa despite facing a righty in Nick Pivetta. Luke. Raley will start in right and bat fifth.

Miami Marlins vs. Philadelphia Phillies, 6:40 p.m. ET

Jazz Chisholm will lead off for the second consecutive game as the Marlins hope to shake up their moribund offense while Yuli Gurriel gets a start at first base against lefty Matt Strahm.

Welcome to the leadoff spot, Bryson Stott. Jake Cave gets a start in right field against Sandy Alcantara while Kody Clemens fills in at first base and J.T. Realmuto gets a day off.

San Diego Padres vs. New York Mets, 7:10 p.m. ET

Matt Carpenter and Rougned Odor continue to start against right-handers for San Diego and will likely continue to do so for as long as David Dahl is on the injured list.

Mark Canha gets the start in left for New York with Starling Marte nursing a minor neck injury while Daniel Vogelbach will DH against righty Yu Darvish.

Cincinnati Reds vs. Atlanta Braves, 7:20 p.m. ET

The lefty brigade of TJ Friedl, Jake Fraley and Jason Vosler are in the lineup today for Cincinnati against right-hander Bryce Elder.

With Travis d’Arnaud on the concussion IL, Sean Murphy bats cleanup and starts behind the dish while Eddie Rosario takes left field against righty Graham Ashcraft.

Seattle Mariners vs. Chicago Cubs, 7:40 p.m. ET

It’s a stack of righties for the Mariners against lefty Drew Smyly, as Ty France will man the two-hole while AJ Pollock gets a start in left.

Cody Bellinger will man the clean-up spot with righty Chris Flexen on the mound for Seattle, while Eric Hosmer gets the nod at first base.

Kansas City Royals vs. Texas Rangers, 8:05 p.m. ET

Edward Olivares — a sneaky streaming source of average and speed — is back in the lineup and batting second against lefty Andrew Heaney while Matt Duffy will hit fifth.

Facing righty Zack Greinke, lefties Josh Smith and Robbie Grossman will both draw starts for Texas while Bubba Thompson will patrol center.

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Colorado Rockies, 8:40 p.m. ET

St. Louis is the next team to become a streaming darling thanks to a series in Coors Field, and with righty German Marquez on the mound Alec Burleson and Nolan Gorman are strong plays.

C.J. Cron is back in the lineup and will look to pick up where he left off during his scorching start to 2023. Elehuris Montero gets a start and will bat sixth against Steven Matz, he’s a recommended DFS play whenever he gets a lefty in Coors Field.

Washington Nationals vs. Los Angeles Angels, 9:38 p.m. ET

Alex Call appears to be the Nationals’ preferred leadoff man at this point, which makes sense given his production thus far. Lane Thomas also finds himself moving up in the lineup against lefty Jose Suarez.

To the surprise of no one, the Angels have stacked right-handed bats against lefty Patrick Corbin.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks, 9:40 p.m. ET

The youth movement of Turang, Mitchell and Wiener (would be a great law firm) are back in action and ready to wreak havoc.

A bit of a surprise to see Josh Rojas still in Arizona’s lineup against a lefty in Wade Miley, but Rojas has been too hot to sit. Corbin Carroll, on the other hand, will get a day off, while Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Jake McCarthy man the corner outfield spots.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants, 9:45 p.m. ET

With righty Logan Webb on the mound for the Giants, it’ll be James Outman, Jason Heyward and David Peralta manning the outfield spots for the Dodgers. Miguel Vargas, meanwhile, will sit as Mookie Betts slides to second base.

No Michael Conforto with lefty Julio Urias on the hill for L.A. — J.D. Davis will get the start at DH and bat cleanup.
