Chicago White Sox
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. absolutely tattooed a ball into the left-field bleachers in the eighth inning on Sunday for a two-run homer that gave Toronto a 3–2 lead. The Blue Jays would go on to win, 5–2.
Vladdy Jr. hit two homers in Chicago and four in the week. Trent Thornton went six strong for Toronto and Ken Giles polished off the win for his tenth save of the season.
Dylan Covey will be a massive underdog, on the road, against Justin Verlander. He’s only giving up about two hits every three innings but the big problem is the walks. He’s walking 6.6 per nine innings and striking out just half of that.
Eloy Jimenez could return to Chicago’s lineup on Monday or for this game. The 22-year-old Dominican has been out since the end of April with a bad ankle.
Justin Verlander finished second in the American League Cy Young for the third time in his career in 2018. This season, he’s looking like an early front-runner to finally win it again, seven seasons after his first.
He’s already 7–1 with a 2.38 ERA and a just stupid 0.79 WHIP. He’s put up those numbers despite serving up eleven home runs already. His one-and-a-half per nine innings isn’t huge cause for concern but it’s still a lot, especially for an elite-level talent. He obviously picks his spots as to when to get aggressive because most all of them have been solo shots.
Houston blew a 3–1 lead against Boston on Sunday, which marked the end of its ten-game winning streak. The Astros have been just fine with Jose Altuve on the Injured List but George Springer tweaked his back and left the final game at Fenway. He’s had back problems in the past so Houston will be cautious.
