* The Indians and White Sox split a pair of games last week in which the two teams combined for a .197 batting average and a .268 slugging percentage. Cleveland is now 28-12 versus the White Sox since the beginning of 2013.
* The Indians dropped two of three games to Minnesota this weekend to fall to 2-6 against the AL Central. They are 2-1 outside the division. Cleveland is no better than 4-7 through 11 games for the first time since 2009 (3-8).
* With Sunday’s 9-1 loss at Detroit, the White Sox have been limited to no more than one run in five of their seven losses this season. Chicago has averaged 6.75 runs in its four wins, but just 1.57 in its seven defeats.
* Trevor Bauer is 2-0 with a 1.08 ERA through his first two starts of 2015. But in his only previous start at U.S. Cellular Field (6/28/2013), Bauer surrendered six hits and five earned runs and lasted just two-thirds of an inning in a game the Indians eventually came back to win, 19-10.
* John Danks is 5-12 with a 5.19 ERA versus the Indians in his career. And when working against Cleveland at home, Danks is just 1-7 with a 6.42 ERA, surrendering 12 homers in 54.2 innings.
* By going 6-for-9 over his last two games, Melky Cabrera has raised his 2015 batting average by nearly 100 points, improving from .162 to .261. Cabrera is now batting .379 versus right-handers, as opposed to just .059 (1-for-17) against southpaws.
