The Jays come into U.S Cellular field for game 1 against the White Sox on this night coming off a short 2 game series against the D Backs for which they split.
The Jays who are now 6 games over .500 and without Bautista look to continue climbing the standings as they reach the mid way point of the season, they’ll need a rock solid second half of the season if they expect to make the playoffs.
The White Sox are coming off a series in Boston for which they’ve won at least 3 of the 4, as the 4th game of that series goes tonight. So they are looking real good at the moment.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays offensively were rolling for a while but look to have slowed down a bit again. This likely has to do with the injury to Bautista who was doing grea at lead off.
They have scored just 15 runs in their last 4 games but two of those games they scored over 4.
Against the Sox at home and with Rodon on the mound pitching pretty good lately, it may be difficult to put up big numbers in this one.
The Jays are 2nd in home runs in the MLB though, so that can mean an explosion any given game.
Sanchez has been a rock for the Jays and is now 7-1. The youngster has had the odd bad outing but in general has given them solid outings.
Against Baltimore in his last outing, he gave up just 2 over 6 innings. This is not an easy thing to do against that powerful offense.
His era is a respectable 3.35 and whip at 1.25.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox are hot right now, winning 3 straight in Boston and trying to take the 4th today.
They’ve done so by scoring 14 runs in those 3 games. Runs aren’t too hard to come by against the Red Sox, so against Sanchez it may be a bit tougher.
The White Sox average just 4.1 runs per game on the season which is 9th worst in the MLB.
They allow 4.2 runs per game which is 10th best in the league. So when they do win it’s usually because of good pitching.
Rodon has not been one of their better pitchers as he is now just 2-6.
His era is right around the team average at 4.16 and whip at 1.49. However, he’s been better as of late.
In his last 5 outings, he’s given up 2 or less 4 times and 4 runs in the other outing. It looks like he’s found his groove.

Pitching matchup is edged out by Sanchez and run production is edged out by the Jays.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Jays ML
Jays aren’t scoring very much at the moment but can explode any given game. Rodon has been pretty good lately so Jays will get probably 4-5.
Sanchez consistently gives up just 2 over 6 innings and the White Sox aren’t a huge offensive threat.
They’ll likely muster up just 1 or 2 on him and maybe tack on 1 more if he’s pulled after the 6th.
