The Texas Rangers have exceeded expectations offensively. Their bats have been swinging well for nearly all the season. The pitching staff has left a great deal to be desired, however. They’re a top-10 offense, but as a team, the Rangers are 23rd in the majors with the ERA of 4.96. Ariel Jurado has done a disservice in this respect to the Rangers.
He enters Thursday with an ERA of 5.38 along with 1.51 WHIP. It has been especially bad for him lately, in which Jurado has been occupying to get an ERA of both 8.53 along with 2.05 WHIP in his previous three outings. In his past 5.2 innings pitched, Jurado has gotten pummeled for 10 earned runs and 18 hits. Do not expect him to suddenly figure it out from the White Sox at Chicago here.
If Ross Detwiler can have a good match that is enough the White Sox should be in good shape against the Rangers. For the White Sox, Detwiler hasn’t been effective problem being. The former National goes into this one with a 6.10 ERA along with 1.62 WHIP. In his past two trips, Detwiler got punched for 8 earned runs in 7.2 innings of work.
The Rangers have been great against Detwiler. They’re hitting .303 with a .425 OBP in 33 at-bats. They might not be a fantastic group, but there are still some bats in their lineup that a pitcher has to be aware of. The last score is going to be of the higher scoring variety, so a drama on the OVER seems like a selection for Thursday.
