White Sox Look to Finish Season Strong

This has been a rough year for the Toronto Blue Jays (49-57, –$1,187), but they won five of seven games last week, and they can keep up the momentum with a strong showing in their three-game series against the tanking Chicago White Sox (41-62, –$680). Game 2 from New Comiskey goes Tuesday night at 8:10 PM ET on both Sportsnet and WGN.

Oddsmakers have the Blue Jays as -230-moneyline favorites. The total is at 9.5.

Toronto should have the edge in pitching with Marcus Stroman (3.85 FIP) on the hill. The Jays are 13-8 behind their ace for 1.18 units in profit; Stroman has allowed a total of seven earned runs in his last six starts. However, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (.678 OPS) suffered ligament damage in his right ankle Friday night and could miss the rest of the regular season.

Veteran northpaw Mike Pelfrey (5.50 FIP) is penciled in to take the mound for Chicago. Despite a low .269 BABIP, Pelfrey is 2.97 units in the red on a team record of 6-11, tasting defeat in each of his last five appearances. Current Jays have a combined .786 lifetime OPS versus Pelfrey, including a 1.132 OPS from recently acquired catcher Miguel Montero, who’s 7-for-16 with four doubles.
