A showdown in Chicago between two 4th place teams in their respective divisions. Each will send a inexperienced starter to the mound, each whom have struggled thus far against MLB hitters.
Jake Thompson was acquired as the key prospect piece in return for Philadelphia, in the trade that sent star Cole Hamels to Texas last season.
Thompson owns a 8.79 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in his first three career starts this year, though he has shown potential in the minors.
The main pieces are now starting to look like Jerad Eickoff and Jorge Alfaro.
Cesar Hernandez leads the team with a .295 average, ahead of their best all-aroiund hitter, Odubel Herrera.
For his part, Herrera has contributed 13 homers, 19 steals and a .2825 average.
The Phillies’ offense is not the worst in the league, but it’s certainly close to it. They’ve scored the 28th most runs of the 30 teams, with a total of 473 which is 20 less than their counterpart, the 27th place White Sox.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox’ bats have finally started to heat up, tallying four or more runs in 7 of their past 10 games.
They are led in the power department by Todd Frazier and his 31 homers, but not all is well for the third-baseman considering his .212 average.
Adam Eaton is Chicago’s version of Odubel Herrera, with his 11 homers and 12 steals, respectively.
The White Sox rotation is extremely top-heavy, with Chris Sale and Jose Quintana leading the way.
Unfortunately for the Sox, it completely falls off after #2, part of the reason why they need to send Anthony Ranaudo and his terrible 9.42 ERA to the hill, though this can be chalked up as a lost season and they may as well see if there’s anything there going forward I suppose…

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
It may be risky to bet on offenses to tally a large run total, considering the two teams sit in 27th and 28th overall in total runs, respectively.

However, when you look at the two starting pitchers and the recent run total trends, I like the over.
