Date Player
5/27/2017 Mike Pelfrey, CWS, P
Mike Pelfrey improved to 2-4, allowing two runs - one earned - on four hits and one walk in 5.0 innings, as the Chicago White Sox defeated the Detroit Tigers 8-2 on Friday. Pelfrey struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.41 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: After going 0-4 with a 5.70 ERA over his first five starts in a White Sox uniform, the former Tiger has yielded just two earned runs and eight hits across 11 innings in winning his last two. Pelfrey probably isn't a good bet to sustain that level of success, and he'll face a tough matchup when he takes on the Red Sox at home on Wednesday.
5/27/2017 Matthew Boyd, Det, P
Matthew Boyd fell to 2-5, allowing three runs on nine hits and two walks in 4.2 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Chicago White Sox 8-2 on Friday. Boyd struck out three, ending the game with a 5.40 ERA and 1.74 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Boyd continues to get hit hard, as he's surrendered 37 hits in 18 1/3 innings - a .416 average - over his last four starts. The left-hander has now lost four of his past five outings and is winless in seven starts since recording his last victory on April 16. His grasp on a rotation spot appears to be rather shaky.
5/27/2017 José Iglesias, Det, SS
Jose Iglesias went 0 for 5 Friday as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Chicago White Sox 8-2. He ended the game with a .213 batting average.
5/27/2017 Justin Upton, Det, LF
Justin Upton went 1 for 4 Friday as the Detroit Tigers fell to the Chicago White Sox 8-2. Upton scored once and stole a base. He ended the game with a .242 batting average.
5/27/2017 Matt Davidson, CWS, 3B
Matt Davidson went 2 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Friday as the Chicago White Sox topped the Detroit Tigers 8-2. The homer was his ninth of the season. He ended the game with a .257 batting average.

Analysis: It's the third homer in eight games for the 26-year-old, who's hitting .391 (9 for 23) with seven RBIs during that span. Davidson seems to have established himself as the White Sox's regular DH and should continue to receive consistent playing time going forward.
5/27/2017 Tim Anderson, CWS, SS
Tim Anderson went 1 for 4 Friday as the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 8-2. He ended the game with a .256 batting average.
5/27/2017 Nicholas Castellanos, Det, 3B
Nicholas Castellanos went 1 for 4 Friday as the Detroit Tigers fell to the Chicago White Sox 8-2. He ended the game with a .220 batting average.
5/27/2017 J.D. Martinez, Det, RF
J.D. Martinez went 0 for 4 Friday as the Detroit Tigers fell to the Chicago White Sox 8-2. He ended the game with a .341 batting average.
5/27/2017 Victor Martinez, Det, DH
Victor Martinez went 1 for 4 Friday as the Detroit Tigers fell to the Chicago White Sox 8-2. He ended the game with a .258 batting average.
5/27/2017 Todd Frazier, CWS, 3B
Todd Frazier went 0 for 2 Friday as the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 8-2. Frazier scored once. He ended the game with a .189 batting average.
5/27/2017 José Abreu, CWS, 1B
Jose Abreu went 3 for 5 Friday as the Chicago White Sox topped the Detroit Tigers 8-2. Abreu scored once. He ended the game with a .300 batting average.

Analysis: Abreu has been absolutely mashing during a seven-game hitting streak in which he's 16 for 33 (.485) with three homers, six RBIs and nine runs scored. Five of his 10 home runs have come since May 15.
5/27/2017 Leury García, CWS, CF
Leury Garcia went 0 for 4 Friday as the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 8-2. Garcia scored once. He ended the game with a .286 batting average.
5/27/2017 Avisaíl García, CWS, RF
Avisail Garcia went 3 for 5 with a double and three RBIs Friday as the Chicago White Sox topped the Detroit Tigers 8-2. He ended the game with a .341 batting average.

Analysis: A return home was just what the doctor ordered for Garcia, who went 0 for 11 over the final four games of the White Sox's just-completed road trip. He's now batting .394 (13 for 33) with two homers, four doubles and seven RBIs in his last eight contests at Guaranteed Rate Field.
5/27/2017 Alex Avila, Det, C
Alex Avila went 1 for 3 with a home run and an RBI Friday as the Detroit Tigers fell to the Chicago White Sox 8-2. The homer was his sixth of the season. He ended the game with a .354 batting average.

Analysis: Avila's six homers have come in just 82 at-bats and he's now driven in 17 runs in his 23 starts this season. The revitalized veteran should receive the majority of time behind the plate with James McCann placed on the disabled list Thursday.
5/27/2017 Melky Cabrera, CWS, LF
Melky Cabrera went 3 for 5 with a home run and four RBIs Friday as the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 8-2. The homer was his fourth of the season. Cabrera scored twice. He ended the game with a .251 batting average.

Analysis: The Melkman continues to deliver of late, as he's 9 for 26 (.346) with eight RBIs and seven runs scored during a six-game tear. Cabrera has been especially hot over the last few days, going 6 for 13 with a pair of homers.
5/27/2017 César Hernández, Phi, 2B
Hernandez wasn't in Friday's lineup due to tightness in his groin.

Analysis: The injury isn't believed to be serious. Though Hernandez is hitting just .188 over his last 12 games, he's 4 for 14 with two doubles in his past three.
5/27/2017 Stephen Piscotty, StL, RF
Piscotty left the Cardinals prior to Friday's game at Colorado to attend to a personal matter.

Analysis: Cards manager Mike Matheny told reporters he wasn't sure when Piscotty would return. The issue is believed to be unrelated to the outfielder's recent struggles at the plate, as he's 3 for 19 in five games since returning from a hamstring injury last weekend.
5/27/2017 Alec Asher, Bal, P
Asher will start the series finale on Sunday at Houston and replace RHP Ubaldo Jimenez in the rotation.

Analysis: Asher will make his third start of the season and first since allowing three runs, six hits and one walk with four strikeouts in six innings against Boston on May 2.
5/27/2017 Ken Giles, Hou, P
Ken Giles recorded his 14th save, allowing no runs on no hits in 1.0 inning, as the Houston Astros defeated the Baltimore Orioles 2-0 on Friday. Giles struck out one, ending the game with a 3.10 ERA and 0.98 WHIP on the season.
5/27/2017 Joe Musgrove, Hou, P
Joe Musgrove improved to 4-4, allowing four hits over 7.0 scoreless innings, as the Houston Astros defeated the Baltimore Orioles 2-0 on Friday. Musgrove struck out six, ending the game with a 4.89 ERA and 1.43 WHIP on the season.
