With a little less than half the games remaining in the season, below is a look at the toughness of the schedule for each team in the AL Central. The second-half contains mostly games amongst division teams so it can the numbers do get titlted a bit since KC will obviously play 3 teams with > .500 winning percentages.
|Detroit Tigers||Cleveland Indians||Minnesota Twins||Chicago White Sox||Kansas City Royals|
Of the top three contenders Detroit has the toughest schedule and Cleveland has the easiest. That is unfortunate. Additionally the Tigers have two doubleheaders already scheduled: Sept 11th vs TEX & July 24th vs CWS. This leaves little room for additional rain outs as they would likely face more doubleheaders or take away one of the very few off day’s through the rest of the season.
