The Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers face off on Friday in an American League Central MLB showdown at Comerica Park.

The Chicago White Sox finished last season with a 93-69 record overall and were able to win the American League Central. The White Sox weren’t super busy this offseason but they did bring in outfielder AJ Pollock. He is currently dealing with an illness and it’s unclear if he will be able to go in this game. To get Pollock they had to give up Craig Kimbrel. This is a talented offense that includes the likes of Tim Anderson, Jose Abreu, and Eloy Jiminez. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Detroit Tigers and they finished last season with a 77-85 record. The Tigers were busy this offseason and they brought in Javier Baez, Tucker Barnhart, Andrew Chafin, Miguel Pineda, and Eduardo Rodriguez. The offense finished 11th in runs scored last season and this is an offense that can have success. People like Akil Baddoo and Robbie Grossman are going to be leaned on heavily this season.

Getting the start for the White Sox is Lucas Giolito and last season he finished with an 11-9 record and an ERA of 3.53. 

Getting the start for the Detroit Tigers is Eduardo Rodriguez and last season he finished with a 13-8 record and an ERA of 4.74. The biggest issue for Rodriguez was a bit of inconsistency last season, but this is a talented squad. 

The White Sox are 5-2 in their last seven games following an off day. The Tigers are 2-6 in their last eight games overall. The White Sox are 1-4 in their last five meetings in Detroit. The over is 34-14-4 in the last 52 meetings in Detroit. The White Sox are 37-16 in the last 53 meetings. 

At times Eduardo Rodriguez struggled last season but I expect he is going to find success in this game. Lucas Giolito finished last year with an ERA of 3.53 and the Tigers are going to score against him. Look for both offenses to struggle and the under is going to cash.
