➢ The AL Central has a combined 271-361 (.429) record this season. That is on pace to be the lowest winning percentage by any division since 1994.
➢ The White Sox are 6-2 in their last eight games, their best record in an eight-game span this season. Over that time, they are hitting .274 with a .823 OPS, hitting 15 home runs.
➢ The Tigers are 9-3 versus the White Sox this season, their best record versus any single opponent. If it holds, it would match their highest winning percentage against the White Sox since 1988 (also 9-3).
➢ Since the start of last season, Avisail Garcia is hitting .382 against left-handed pitching. Only Nolan Arenado has a higher batting average against lefties in that span (minimum 200 plate appearances).
