If Houston wants to make any strides at the AL West this season, Tuesday’s starter is going to have to get things turned around quickly.
However, he’ll run into a hot Chicago White Sox offense that continues to produce.
The Astros relied heavily last season on their pitching rotation to be the lead of this team.
However, things haven’t quite panned out that way a month an a half in. The Astros have allowed an average of 6 runs per road contest and are just 5-14 SU because of that.
They’ll look to find the Dallas Keuchel of old here on Tuesday. The Cy Young Award Winner in 2015 finished 20-8 with a 2.48 ERA. This year, he is already 2-5 with a 5.58 ERA.
Keuchel has gone on a winless stretch where he has allowed a ridiculous 26 runs. Over the last 3 games he’s issued 9 free passes, something he simply did not do last season. In four career games against Chicago he has just a 2.30 ERA, but is only 2-2 thanks to run support.
Chicago White Sox
Chicago comes in off a rare series where they dropped back to back games against the Yankees.
This Chicago team has been one of the hottest out of the gate, but will send one of their worst pitchers to the hill. In fact, after John Danks was DFA, Tuesday’s starter Carlos Rondon is now by far the most inconsistent starter in that rotation.
Rondon is just 1-4 and has an ERA of 4.99. Over 26.2 innings of work, he has allowed 22 runs. He has done one thing right despite his record and ERA and that is give the Sox length. He has finished the 6th inning in six of his seven starts this year.
Chicago is 10-4 in their last 14 against the Astros and took 5 of 6 last season.
