Chicago White Sox vs Texas Rangers 8/2/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Chicago White Sox will go against the Texas Rangers in MLB action in Globe Life Field, TX, on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, at 8:05 PM ET.


The Southsiders had a hectic trade deadline, saying farewell to Kenyan Middleton, Joe Kelly, Jake Burger, Lance Lynn, and Lucas Giolito. Unexpectedly, Dylan Cease, scheduled to begin this competition, stayed.


Cease faced Texas once this season, giving up two runs in 6.0 innings in a White Sox victory. Cease possesses a good fastball and strong strikeout stuff, despite having a lackluster year compared to 2022.


He was, however, getting destroyed when batters got up to him.


Jake Burger’s departure equals 20% of their total home runs offensively. He was second on the squad in both home runs and RBIs. Chicago ranks 23rd in runs scored per game, so scoring was not one of their strong suits.


No club boasts a lower walk rate and only one team has a lower OBP. They aren’t compensating for failing to reach base with a bottom-10 batting average, slugging percentage, or number of stolen bases. 


With 96 save opportunities, the White Sox relief pitchers have a 45.2% save rate. In the season, relief pitchers inherited 152 runners, with 39.5% of them scoring.


White Sox pitchers faced 108 occasions where runners were on base in addition to 143 high-pressure situations.


This season, the White Sox sent 352 bullpen pitchers to the mound. With 53 holds this year, the bullpen relievers are ranked 17th in the league. This season, they made 19 saves but also missed 23 of their 42 save opportunities.


Out of 8,559 innings played on the field, the White Sox converted 69.0% of balls in play into outs, placing them 17th in professional baseball.


The Chicago White Sox earned 2,853 putouts, 791 assists, and 57 mistakes thus far this season.


They presently have a fielding percentage of .985, which places them 20th among major league baseball teams, and they turned 74 double plays.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Chi White Sox’s last 5 matches.
  • The Chicago White Sox are 2-8 SU in their last 10 matches.
  • The Chi White Sox are 3-7 SU in their last 10 matches against Texas.

Chicago White Sox vs Texas Rangers Predictions 8/2/2023


Although Texas has several alternatives, no starter was named for this game.


Max Scherzer and Jordan Montgomery are prepared to help this team win its first championship despite Jacob deGrom being sidelined for the season and 2023 All-Star Nathan Eovaldi being injured.


Although the bullpen had a difficult year, they added reinforcements. Chris Stratton was added after the deadline but before Aroldis Chapman, who came at the start of July.


Recently, pitching suffered, but perhaps better times are still to come.


There is no cause to be concerned about the Rangers offensively. Texas is scoring more runs than any other club in the conference, largely thanks to Adolis Garcia.


They also have the highest batting average and on-base percentage in baseball. Texas ranks second in slugging and sixth in home runs, so don’t worry about pop.


The #1 offense in the AL is completed with a top-10 walk rate. Texas is tough despite its propensity for base-stealing.


The Rangers had 85 save opportunities, resulting in 47 holds and 18 missed saves. Texas saw relief pitchers take the mound in 37 situations when a save was possible, and they came away with 19 saves.


Their bullpen relievers entered games with runners on base 98 times and in high-pressure situations 89 times. Of the 164 inherited runners, Texas relievers have an inherited scoring percentage of 30.5%.


They sent 290 bullpen pitchers to the mound this season and now own the 27th-best save percentage in MLB. Thanks to it, the Texas Rangers have 96 double plays and the fifth-best fielding percentage in professional baseball.


Over the season, the Rangers totaled 2,807 putouts, 937 assists, and 44 mistakes. The Rangers had a defensive efficiency of 70.5% in 8,421 innings played on the field, ranking fifth in professional baseball.


  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Texas’ last 6 matches.
  • The Texas Rangers are 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • The Texas Rangers are 8-2 SU in their last 10 matches at home.

Chicago White Sox vs Texas Rangers. The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers.


The sensible move is to gamble on Texas in a playoff run to defeat a club that sold, even if you don’t know the starter, particularly at home and with the striking disparity in attacking output.


The likelihood of the White Sox suppressing the Rangers’ bats is significantly greater than the likelihood of stillness in Chicago. The Texas Rangers will win to a predicted score of 6-2.
