The Chicago White Sox will look to take care of business against the Minnesota Twins this weekend before resuming their postponed series against the Detroit Tigers on Monday.
The Chicago White Sox enter this weekend's series against the Minnesota Twins with a one-game lead over the rest of the AL Central. They're hoping they can keep that lead through the weekend, too, before finishing their rain-delayed series against the Detroit Tigers on Monday.
The White Sox will start Chris Sale in Friday night's affair, pushing the rotation back a day -- and Sale to start on the road instead of at home where he's undefeated with 1.20 ERA this season -- following Thursday night's postponed game against the Tigers.
Esmerling Vasquez will take the mound for the Twins as he attempts to get more experience under his belt while having the opportunity to play spoiler against the White Sox. That isn't a likely outcome, however, considering Vasquez is making just his third start of the season -- this time due to the season-ending injury to Cole De Vries.
