The AL Central showdown continues Wednesday as the Cleveland Indians take on the Chicago White Sox.
After a dominant nine innings of work from Shane Bieber on Tuesday, Zac Plesac takes the hill for the Indians on Wednesday and looks to keep the elite pitching going for Cleveland.
The Indians are known for their elite pitching, and that trend has carried right over into 2021. This team has as deep of a rotation as you can ask for, accumulating a total ERA of just 2.87 through 11 games. This mark ranks second in all of baseball. Their bullpen also has the sixth best ERA in baseball.
The Indians offense has been a bit tough to figure out. The biggest issue for this team this season is hitting with runners in scoring position. Cleveland has the most runs this season through the long ball, but have struggled to pick up base hits with runners on.
Plesac gets his first test of the season against Chicago. So far the right-hander has a 1.38 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox get a full glimpse of Shane Bieber last night, and there may be no relief in sight for their offense having to go against Plesac this evening.
Still, the White Sox are capable of digging themselves out of a funk and have the personnel in their lineup to do so at any time. The White So still have the seventh highest scoring offense in baseball with the league’s current best hitter in Yermin Mercedes in the lineup. The breakout catcher is hitting .500 to start the season.
The White Sox will be a bit shorthanded once again with Tim Anderson out due to injury. Carlos Rodon will try to keep pace with Plesac on the mound. Rodon has struggled in the last few years, particularly in 2020. He’s made one start this season, throwing five shutout innings against the Mariners.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
The runs scoring issues were on full display for the White Sox last night against Bieber, and those should continue Wednesday against the Indians. The Indians also took advantage late in the game on what has been a weak White Sox bullpen.
The Indians offense has had its fair share of struggles, but should be able to get to Rodon early and continue that success against the White Sox bullpen. Not to mention, the Indians bullpen has been dangerous as well. There’s simply no room for error when facing the Indians pitching staff. Combine with the good defense of the Indians, and Cleveland should pick up the series victory.
