Lopez will start Friday's series opener against the Tigers.

Lopez has been the White Sox's best starter this season and enters Friday's contest on a bit of a roll. The right-hander's allowed just one earned run on seven hits while striking out 10 over his last two starts, covering 13.1 innings. Overall, his 3.26 ERA tops Chicago's rotation; however, that is tempered by a 4.49 FIP. His high walk rate (4.0 BB/9) could bite him at any time, so eliminating the long ball -- he hasn't permitted a home run over his last five starts -- is key.
