The Texas Rangers are 63-65 on the season. A Wild Card spot is unlikely as they trail the Oakland Athletics by 11 games. Texas has had issues with their pitching as they have allowed the fifth most runs in the AL. Pitchers like Adrian Sampson (5.82 ERA), Adriel Jurado (5.38 ERA), and Shelby Miller (8.59 ERA) have been abysmal this season. The team’s offense is led by Danny Santana and Elvis Andrus. Santana is hitting .304 with 21 homers, and Andrus is batting .282 with 25 stolen bases. The Rangers have missed Joey Gallo who has 22 homers in 70 games. Gallo has missed the last month with a wrist injury.
Lance Lynn will take the mound for the Texas Rangers on Friday night. Lynn is 14-8 on the season with a 3.60 ERA. In his lone start against the White Sox he struggled allowed five runs in seven innings.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox stand at 57-69 and will miss the playoffs like most expected. Offense has been a concern for Chicago. The team ranks second last in the American League in runs (532). You can’t blame Jose Abreu and Yoan Moncada who have been rare bright spots. Abreu is hitting .276 with 28 homers and 96 RBIs, and Moncada has a .301 average with 20 blasts. Tim Anderson has been one of the best contact hitters in the league with a .332 average.
On the mound for the White Sox is Dylan Cease. The rookie has struggled going 2-6 with a 5.93 ERA this year. Cease has allowed opposition to hit .274 and has allowed 10 homers in only 44 innings.
