One thing I noticed about Rodon is he has been using his slider more and his strike outs have gone up a lot since. He had a 17.3% strike out rate last year after his injury and is off to a 30% strike out rate now. His control has looked really good and it's going to be 40 degrees today so the ball won't be popping off bats. This is more important for his counter part Zimmermann who is a contact pitcher anyways who relies on soft contact. I do like the White sox bats this year and I know that most people think they will crush Zimmerman like htey have in the past, but this lineup really hasn't faced him so I think this game stays under.
While Zimmerman has looked better this season I like these improved bats in Southside to do what they did last year against him and that's hit him hard. Zimm's ERA was +7.00 in 2018 vs these Sox. Rodon looked great in the Bronx and the Tigers are 27th in F5 runs per game. All over the SOX here!
