MLB odds, picks, bets for Saturday

The White Sox, who are in free fall, have changed their pitching rotation by adding Brad Keller to the starting lineup for Saturday’s matinee game against the Yankees.

Keller started in another game on May 3, throwing 102 pitches in just 4/3 innings, but allowed five hits and three runs against the Cardinals.

Chicago lost the game 3-0, with the lack of run support being the main problem for last place in the AL.

Otherwise, Keller earned his way out of the bullpen by giving up just one earned run in eight total innings of relief.

The right-handed pitcher doesn’t have many strikeouts, but he often induces ground balls by slowing down his pitch and relying on his slider.

He’ll be facing Lewis Gil, who can’t do anything wrong at the moment, posting a 0.49 ERA in his last three starts.

Gill ranks in the top 10 percent in both expected batting average and slugging percentage, two categories in which White Sox hitters have a terrible record.

After Gill, the Yankees’ bullpen has the second-lowest ERA at 2.59.

The spread or moneyline has little value in this game.

While Chicago’s lack of offensive power against a stout staff points toward the under, Keller’s tenacity in big chances provides added incentive.
