Why you should back the Guardians

Cleveland is above-average in several offensive categories, including hits, doubles, stolen bases, batting average, and strikeout avoidance. The Guardians also have a tremendous pitching projection in Saturday afternoon’s game, with 24-year-old right-hander Triston McKenzie scheduled to take the hill. McKenzie has a 3.20 ERA in 2022, and he has not allowed an earned run across 21 innings in the month of July. McKenzie has 23 strikeouts in those 21 frames, and he is averaging 3.56 strikeouts for every walk this season.

McKenzie is also posting a 0.98 WHIP in 2022, and Cleveland’s bullpen is strong. Guardians relievers are generating more than a strikeout per inning, with an above-average ERA among American League clubs. Cleveland is also in the top three of the AL in ground ball rate from bullpens.

Why you should back the White Sox

Chicago’s bullpen is off to a strong start in 2022, with the White Sox posting a top-five mark in wins above replacement from relief pitchers. The White Sox also have a bullpen ERA under 4.00 with more than a strikeout per inning and a top-five mark in the AL in ground ball rate. Chicago’s pitching staff will face a Cleveland unit that is in the bottom tier of the AL in home runs, with the Guardians also ranking below the AL average in walks and slugging percentage.
