Los Angeles Angels vs. Chicago White Sox Prediction

The Chicago White Sox will send out Michael Kopech for tonight's game against the Angels. Kopech started the season extremely well but has since regressed backward a bit.

He has a 2-4 record with a 2.59 ERA, however, his xFIP in the last 30 days sits at 5.70 with 11.2% of walks. In those 30 days, he has a BABIP of .236, proving he's also been a bit lucky during the last month. He's induced just 33.9% of ground balls while allowing 22% of line drives in the last 30 days.

Kopech has struggled against lefties more than righties but probably doesn't need to worry all that much going up against this Angels offense. As a projected lineup, the Angels have a .186 ISO and wOBA of .283 in the last 30 days. That .283 number is only because of Mike Trout and David MacKinnon, who both have a wOBA of .445 or higher.

On the other hand, Shohei Ohtani will get the call for the Angels. Ohtani is 6-4 with a 2.90 ERA on the season. In the last 30 days, the right-handed pitcher has had a 3.44 xFIP along with 29% of strikeouts. Ohtani has allowed some power to righties over the last month, with an ISO of .216, but overall, he's been very solid with his put-away stuff.

He also won't need to worry about much power, as the White Sox have a .101 ISO along with a wOBA of .311 in the last 30 days against righties. However, Chicago has limited strikeouts to 16.2% against righties in the last 30 days, so it'll be interesting to see how they fare against Ohtani, who is striking out 29% of batters in the last 30 days.

Neither lineup looks all that appealing against two pitchers who have ERAs below 3. But I'm not going to test my luck with bullpens. So, therefore, I'll take the under in the first five innings in this game.
