Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox have had a disappointing 2019 season as they have a 61-77 record. The issue with the White Sox has been their offense. The team has scored 580 runs, which ranks as the second worst in the AL. Chicago’s offense is led by Yoan Moncada (22 homers) and Jose Abreu (28 homers/104 RBIs).
Their pitching hasn’t been that great either as they have allowed 725 runs. Guys like Reynaldo Lopez (5.41 ERA), Dylan Cease (6.75 ERA), and Ross Detwiler (6.79 ERA) have been abysmal this season.
The White Sox will have Reynaldo Lopez on the mound for Thursday afternoon’s game. Lopez is 8-12 with a 5.41 ERA this year. The righty is coming off his worst start in which he allowed six runs while recording only two outs against Atlanta.
The Cleveland Indians will have to settle for a wild card spot if they want to make the playoffs. Cleveland stands at a respectable 80-59 but they are 6.5 games behind Minnesota.
The good news is the Indians is that they are tied for the second wild card spot (Oakland) and only one game behind Tampa Bay who holds the first spot.
On the mound for the Indians is Zach Plesac. Plesac is 7-5 with a 3.61 ERA this season. He has allowed the opposition to only hit .233 this season.
In his lone outing against the White Sox he allowed a run in seven innings.
