Cleveland Guardians vs Chicago White Sox Predictions 5/17/2023


The Chicago White Sox are facing a crucial two-month stretch leading up to the trade deadline with a roster full of veteran players who could be attractive to other teams.


The team is currently in fourth place in the AL Central, closer to the bottom of the standings than the top.


However, the White Sox showed their potential on Tuesday night, exploding for six runs in the sixth inning to defeat the Guardians 8-3.


The White Sox will hand the ball to former Cleveland pitcher Mike Clevinger in game two of the series against the Guardians. Clevinger has a 2-3 record in eight starts this season with a 4.79 ERA.


He has allowed 41 hits in 41.1 innings pitched and has a K/9 ratio of 7.6. While he has struggled at home with a 0-1 record and a 3.79 ERA in three starts, he has shown promise with a home K/9 ratio of 9.0.


Clevinger’s hard-hit percentage has decreased this season to 35%, but his strikeout percentage has dropped significantly from his career-high in 2019.


The White Sox will be without key players including closer Liam Hendriks, second baseman Elvis Andrus, and outfielder Elroy Jimenez, who are all dealing with injuries.


With the trade deadline approaching, the next two months will be critical for the White Sox as they look to make a push up the standings in the competitive AL Central division.


The team will counter with right-hander Mike Clevinger, who has a 2-3 record and a 4.79 ERA on the season. 


  • The Chicago White Sox are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of the Chi White Sox’s last 5 meetings with Cleveland.
  • The total hung OVER in 4 of the White Sox’s last 5 home against the Guardians.
