White Sox | Alex Rios to hit third

Chicago White Sox OF Alex Rios is expected to hit third this season. DH Adam Dunn hit third last season, but he has always been distracted by movement on the bases when he hits. So, he'll likely hit fifth, since OF Alejandro De Aza will hit leadoff and look to steal bases.

Fantasy Tip: We don't think this move affects Dunn much. It might hurt his RBI potential a bit with slow-footed Paul Konerko hitting ahead of him, as opposed to 1-2 hitters. But Dunn isn't typically a guy that drives in a ton of runs due to his low batting averages. If Rios can handle the three-hole, it should boost his value a bit.
