The Chicago White Sox will be hosting the Toronto Blue Jays for a three-game series this week at Guaranteed Rate Field. The White Sox are 7-3 in their last 10 games and will look to continue their winning stretch against a young but tough Blue Jays team.

The Chicago White Sox are a team ready to face off against some really good hitters.

The Blue Jays are heading into the matchup coming off a loss to the Houston Astros and will look to bounce back against our Chicago White Sox. The Blue Jays currently sit third in the AL East at 30-27 while the White Sox are sitting first In the AL Central at 36-23 and look to defend their home field against a Blue Jays team full of hitters.

The Blue Jays are a young team, similar to the White Sox that are dealing with significant injuries to important pieces on their team. The Blue Jays biggest signing of the offseason, George Springer, has only been limited to four games due to a quad injury and has yet to see his impact on the field. The projected starters for the White Sox in this series are the resurgent Carlos Rodon in game one, the fiery Lance Lynn in game two, and lefty Dallas Keuchel in game three.

The Blue Jays projected starters for the series are LHP Robbie Ray in game one, RHP Alek Manoah, and the lefty and staff ace, Hyun Jin Ryu. The young stars for both teams have shown up and showed out this season and it will be an exciting three-game series to watch.
