AL Central teams do battle Wednesday as the White Sox meet the Cleveland Indians from Progressive Field in Cleveland. r
Chicago White Sox
After another summer of high spending and trying to bolster their pitching staff, the White Sox were expected to be in the top two in the AL Central. It is still very early in the season, but the White Sox have not been able to hit the ground running like they anticipated.
The one great surprise to start the season for the White Sox has been infielder Yermin Mercedes. The up-and-coming slugger is batting .415 to lead Chicago and the catcher has team highs in home runs with four, RBIs with 12, hits with 22 and on-base percentage at .456. He leads the way for a White Sox team that is batting just north of .240.
The White Sox put on a hitting display against the Indians on Tuesday. Reigning AL MVP Jose Abreu rocked two home runs as the Sox were able to chase Zach Plesac out of the game.
The Cleveland Indians had a difficult time hitting the ball last season, and with the loss of Francisco Lindor, those offensive struggles have been magnetized.
The Indians managed to win Sunday to avoid a sweep against Cincinnati Reds. This was largely thanks to 2020 AL Cy Young Winner Shane Bieber, who has anchored one of the better pitching staffs in all of baseball. Zach Plesac, however, struggled to maintain the momentum Tuesday and allowed six runs.
Cleveland is now in third place in the AL Central. One plus for this team lineup wise has been Jordan Luplow. After struggling to get anything going in 2020, Luplow leads the Indians with five home runs and also leads the team in RBI’s. He’s done exceptionally well against left handed pitching in particular.
The Indians need more production out of the rest of their lineup. Eddie Rosario, Jose Ramirez and Josh Naylor have all chipped in, but the Indians still rank near the bottom of the league in average and runs.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The play here is the Indians as they should be able to bounce back and regain their form pitching wise. The Tribe will split this series thanks to the pitching of Aaron Civale, who has been a force on the mound to this point. The right-hander is 3-0 with an ERA of 2.18, 16 Ks and 5 BBs.
Given the inconsistency of Chicago’s pitching staff at times and the fact that they have yet to even announce a starter, the Indians should take this contest.
