The Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers will meet up on the MLB circuit on Friday.
The White Sox just came off a series versus the Twins. Chicago lost the first two games of that set 5-3 and 9-8 but managed a win Wednesday 3-1.
For the Friday game, the White Sox will send out Dylan Cease in the start. Across 67.0 innings and a 3-7 record this year, Cease has a 6.18 ERA with 73 Ks and 33 BBs.
Over on the Detroit side, they played the Indians this week. The Tigers fell 7-2 Tuesday and 2-1 Wednesday, then in the Thursday finale the Tigers dropped 7-0.
For the Friday start, Detroit will send out Jordan Zimmerman. Over 104.0 innings and a 1-11 mark so far, Zimmerman has a 6.32 ERA with 74 Ks and 23 BBs.
The White Sox are 1-6 in their last seven after an off day and 2-5 in their last seven in game one of a series. Chicago is 1-4 in their last five road games and 1-4 in their last five overall.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 17-41 in the last 58 Friday games and 7-22 in their last 29 in game one of a series. Detroit is 16-36 in Zimmerman’s last 52 starts and 3-13 in his last 16 Friday starts.
Over his last two starts, Cease has given up two earned runs on seven hits in 8.1 innings, but he hasn’t gotten a win since August 23.
As for Zimmerman, he had a couple of quality starts going but since has gone 0-2 with 10 earned in 10 innings. I feel like the Sox are the safer play here.
