ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’m going to take a stab on the White Sox, but I’m probably not touching this one. Urena has had plenty of ups and downs in September; he’s got one bad start and two good ones in his last trio. The bad one came with 6.1 innings and six earned in a loss to Minnesota. In the other pair Urena was much better with a combined 10.0 innings and two earned runs on eight hits and two walks. He still went 0-1 in that pair however, so Urena will need some help from the bats and pen in this one. The White Sox haven’t scored more than three runs in any of the last five games though, so I’m staying away.
