With Chris Sale officially on the disabled list today, the Chicago White Sox will look to Charlie Leesman to take his spot in the rotation, as he’ll oppose Justin Verlander (2-1, 2.08 ERA) of the Detroit Tigers in game two of this four-game series.
The White Sox won by a 3-1 score on Monday, moving to 10-10 on the season, while the Tigers are 9-7 overall.
In the White Sox game preview, it states about Leesman’s work at Triple-A Charlotte this season:
"“Leesman is 0-2 with a 1.59 ERA in three starts with Triple-A Charlotte. He has made just one big league start, throwing five innings of one-run ball last season against the Twins. Leesman appeared in seven games out of the bullpen for the White Sox last season.”"
This AL Central game will air on WCIU in Chicago and on Fox Sports in Detroit-plus. The MLB Network is also airing the game. Out of market viewers can watch the game on MLB.TV. On the radio, in Chicago, WSCR 670 will air the game, and also be on MLB Audio.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:08 CT, 7:08 ET.
