White Sox at Twins Under 10 1/2

Kyle Gibson is not a pitcher you’ll find me going Under the total with too often. But this is one of those rare exceptions.

The White Sox are 23rd in runs, minus their second-leading home run hitter, Matt Davidson, and the weather forecast is for wind to be blowing in at 14 mph.

Chicago is in full youth movement. The White Sox are one of the few teams Gibson has a strong history against. Gibson is 5-2 with a 2.37 ERA in nine career starts versus the White Sox.

Minnesota is going to be facing the White Sox’s prize pitching prospect, Lucas Giolito. This will be Giolito’s big league season debut. Giolito received some major league experience last season when he made four starts for the Nationals.

The Twins rank 18th in homers. This was with Miguel Sano, their home run and RBI leader. Sano is out with a shin injury.

It looks like the White Sox have found a dependable closer as Juan Minaya is three-for-three in save opportunities.

Home plate umpire Ben May has had more Unders than Overs during the last three years.
