White Sox | Avisail Garcia on the block?

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 09:45:53 -0800

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is available in a trade this winter, and the White Sox have entertained offers for him this month, according to major league sources. However, Chicago remains optimistic on him after he hit .257/.309/.365 with 13 home runs and 59 RBI in 601 plate appearances in 2015. But the White Sox have more options around Garcia, namely OFs Melky Cabrera and Trayce Thompson. Garcia struck out 54 times and had only eight walks from June 9 to Aug. 3 last year. Garcia is also a below-average defender in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is still only 24 years old, so he has plenty of upside left, it just may not come with the White Sox as they look to upgrade other parts of their roster. Chicago is an ideal location for a hitter, though, so if he remains with the Pale Hose, he could easily improve on his power and average if he can be more consistent with his command of the strike zone. He's one to watch as a value pick in fantasy drafts in 2016.

White Sox | Melky Cabrera goes yard

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 17:25:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run and three RBIs against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, Sept. 23. The homer was the 100th of his major league career.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 10 games, Cabrera ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is 16-for-41 (.390) with three doubles, three home runs and 12 RBIs. He should be targeted by FantasyScore owners looking for a moderately-priced outfielder.

White Sox | Group of ChiSox regulars out for Game 2

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 14:02:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton, SS Alexei Ramirez, OF Melky Cabrera and C Tyler Flowers are all out of the lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers Monday, Sept. 21. 3B Tyler Saladino is starting at the 6 and hitting second, OF Trayce Thompson is starting in left field and batting cleanup, C Rob Brantly is catching and hitting eighth, and OF Leury Garcia is in center field and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf.

Fantasy Tip: Against the hittable Randy Wolf tonight, several White Sox players are worth stacking on FantasyScore, but only Thompson ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should really excite you of this bunch as a deep sleeper on FantasyScore. Hitting cleanup certainly gives him a better chance to drive in runs, too.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche still sidelined

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 09:06:57 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is a desperation sleeper pick on FantasyScore this afternoon. He's hitting .256 (10-for-39) with two home runs and seven RBI in the month of September with increased playing time because of LaRoche's ailment.

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Sunday, Sept. 13. OF J.B. Shuck will bat sixth and play left field.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitless in eight career at-bats against Gibson but is batting .293 in 41 at-bats since the All-Star break with seven RBIs. As long as you're not looking for much power, he could be useful to cap-strapped FantasyScore owners.

White Sox | Melky Cabrera in a rut

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 09:52:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera is hitting .115 (3-for-26) in his last six games.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is in a little lull following a very hot stretch at the plate. It's a little concerning, but it's unlikely to last for too much longer. Plus, he has a nice matchup against Jered Weaver and the Angels tonight.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche taking day off

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 14:31:33 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Hector Santiago Tuesday, Aug. 11. OF Melky Cabrera is serving as the designated hitter, which allows OF Trayce Thompson to start in left field. Thompson is hitting ninth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a very interesting mix of power and speed from his days on the farm. However, hitting low in the batting order limits his FantasyScore value to deep sleeper status. He can also help you significantly with salary cap relief if you want to use him as a lottery ticket.
