The White Sox offense will continue to roll
The White Sox offense will keep on putting up the solid numbers they have all season. Chicago is scheduled to face Danny Salazar (0-3, 6.04 ERA), Justin Masterson (0-1, 4.84 ERA) and Jake Kluber (2-3, 4.14 ERA).
Against the White Sox for his career, Salazar is 1-1, with a 4.97 ERA. In his last start against the White Sox on April 12, Masterson has a no decision, with the White Sox gaining five earned runs against him.
Player to Watch Friday: Alexei Ramirez
There is no reason for the White Sox to struggle against the Indians’ pitching this weekend.
The player to watch on Friday against Salazar is Alexei Ramirez, as he holds a .800 batting average against the RHP in five at-bats.
