Dream11 Fantasy Baseball: White Sox at Pirates

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Chicago White Sox (26-16) at Pittsburgh Pirates (14-26)

Wednesday, September 9th, 7:05 PM EDT

Projected Starters

RHP Dane Dunning (0-0, 3.86 ERA) vs RHP JT Brubaker (1-0, 3.96 ERA)

Game Preview

This matchup between the White Sox and the Pirates will face two teams that are moving in opposite directions as the 2020 MLB season heads into its stretch run – while the White Sox are a clear-cut playoff team in the American League, the Pirates will likely end in last place of the NL Central and are already thinking about how they will approach the 2021 MLB season. The pitching matchup for this game does not offer many standout options and, in fact, this will be a duel of two young right-handers in JT Brubaker and Dane Dunning. Their numbers across the board are quite similar, but the White Sox hurler, Dunning, might have the edge since the Pirates are a weaker lineup in comparison to the White Sox.

Injuries

Chicago White Sox

Aaron Bummer - 60-Day IL - Biceps

9/5 3:16 PM EST - Bummer (biceps) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday. Bummer will shift to the 45-day IL to clear a spot on the 40-man roster as he deals with a nerve issue near his biceps. The southpaw could still return prior to the end of the season, but his status depends on how the nerve issue responds to his throwing program.

Jace Fry - 10-Day IL - Back
