White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez celebrates with AJ Pollock after hitting a home run

When the Major League Baseball schedule came out, it was not expected that a series between the Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles would have playoff implications on both sides. 

But the inspired play of the Orioles this season has made this a significant series all around in the American League Wild Card race. With those implications on both sides, there are several players to watch out for in the home run prop markets, as everyone should be locked in all around.

Ryan Mountcastle (+450)

Ryan Mountcastle is an impressive home run hitter in his own right, hitting 18 home runs on the season. That includes a home run against the White Sox just a night ago in a 5-3 win for the Orioles. On Wednesday, Mountcastle is a prime candidate to send a ball out of the park again when he faces Lucas Giolito.

Giolito has been disappointing this season, going 9-7 with a sky-high ERA of 5.34 over his 116.1 innings of work in 2022. Giolito has been very vulnerable to giving up the longball this season, giving up 19 home runs over the course of the 2022 campaign. Mountcastle might just be able to send another ball out of Camden Yards here, which could help the Orioles pick up another victory.

Eloy Jimenez (+370)

The Chicago White Sox have not been a prolific home run-hitting team by any stretch of the imagination this season. The leading home run hitter for the White Sox this season is Jose Abreu, who has just 14 home runs on the year. But there are a couple of worthy candidates to send a ball out of the park in this game, with Eloy Jimenez being chief among them.

Jimenez has just seven home runs on the season, which is by no means an impressive total in today’s MLB. But he is also one of the better average hitters in baseball this season, posting an average of .306 entering the final week of August. If he can continue to make contact the way he has throughout the year, Jimenez could very well get a hold of one well enough to hit a home run in a very hitter-friendly ballpark.

Elvis Andrus (+700)

Elvis Andrus has been the definition of a feast or famine hitter for some time now, as he usually either hits a ball a long way or ends up getting retired rather easily. He has eight home runs on the season so far, but he could very well send a ball deep into the Baltimore sky in this contest. Andrus faces a pitcher in Spenser Watkins, who also has an ERA above 4.00, which could present a huge opportunity for the veteran power hitter.

For Andrus, the biggest key to his game is simply making contact with the baseball. He is a .235 hitter, which makes him someone who does the bulk of his damage with extra-base hits. At long odds, Andrus is worth a shot to send one deep.
