  • White Sox fans finally get what should be a watchable game tonight. Yoan Moncada, Tim Anderson and Reynaldo Lopez — the future — all in the starting lineup.
  • Lopez looked good in his last outing against these Pirates. He went 7 13 innings, giving up just two earned runs while striking out six. I’d love to see Lopez utilize his straight changeup a bit more. It can be an effective pitch when he throws it at the same arm angle to his fastball.
  • Trevor Williams gets the start for the Pirates. The Sox got to him last Wednesday, putting up four runs on the right-hander over five innings.
