Even though they did not make a significant move the Tigers are surging.
They have narrowed the gap with Cleveland and built a nice cushion above the rest of the division.
Now is a pretty good time to be playing your best ball. Chicago doesn’t have a great shot at getting into the race but at this point they also might just settle for some normalcy.
Chicago White Sox
It never helps when your best player looks like he wants out but to be fair that is not why this team is struggling.
The fact is that all season long scoring has been a challenge even though they have what looks like a powerful lineup.
Todd Frazier has 30 homers but with .212 average his AL transition has not beenn great. Jose Abreu still does not even have half as many homers.
Jose Quintana is just 8-8 but his numbers are just as good as crazy Chris Sale, in fact he has a better ERA.
He is constantly underrated but with his next win he will tie a career high in victories and things would really have to go off the rails for him not to set a new career high.
Quintana has two starts against Detroit this season. A good one at home and bad one on the road.
His splits for the season show no real preference.
Though maligned for not making a major move the Tigers are not dwelling on it. Coming into Wednesday they are riding a seven game winning streak.
The offense has been a monster lately with three double digit performances in the last week. It is the usual suspects too as Miggy and V-Mart have gotten hot.
Both are over .300 now and you know they have the skills to sustain a high level of performance.
The offense should not be a problem down the stretch.
I do not subscribe to the notion that getting a player back from injury is like making a deal.
Perhaps the Tigers do and they have to be happy to get Jordan Zimmerman back out there. He was having a solid first season in the AL but I would be worried about his dramatic splits.
He has not pitched well in Comerica Park. The bullpen has been good but not great this season. That is an improvement overall though.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
The White Sox probably have the advantage on the mound here with Quintana. The fact that he handled the Tigers quite well recently bodes well too, even if that game was at home.
With Zimmerman coming off the DL it is hard to get excited about Detroit.
He is likely a little rusty and might not pitch deeply into the game. Unless the bats are teeing off on Quintana this might be the game that ends their current run.

I am expecting an even line on this one, making Chicago the play. Things could definitely shade to Detroit if they beat the Sox and Sale on Wednesday night.
