- My selection is on Chicago over Texas at 8:05 pm et on Friday.
The Rangers narrowly took the opener of this series last night but I look for the White Sox to rebound on Friday.
White Sox starter Dylan Cease continues to stake his claim as an A.L. Cy Young Award contender having posted a 2.70 FIP and 1.17 WHIP this season, allowing only 2.78 runs per nine innings. You would have to go back 13 starts, all the way to late-May, to find the last time Cease gave up more than a single earned run in an outing.
His counterpart on Friday will be Glenn Otto of the Rangers. He’s mired in an awful rookie campaign, sporting a 5.30 FIP and 1.46 WHIP while giving up 5.75 runs per nine frames.
Chicago should own the later innings in this game as well as its bullpen has been terrific lately, recording a collective 2.21 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over the last seven games (entering last night’s action). Take Chicago (8*).
