Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera went 3-for-6 with a double, triple, two runs scored and an RBI Wednesday, July 20, against the Seattle Mariners.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has come alive, pushing his average over the .300 mark. In the month of July he is 17-for-49 (.347) with eight runs scored, two doubles, a triple and a home run with four RBIs to raise his average from .294 to .302 since July 4. He has re-emerged as a must-start across all fantasy formats and DFS play.

Chicago White Sox SS Tim Anderson and OF Avisail Garcia are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. SS Tyler Saladino is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth, while 1B Justin Morneau is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez. Also, OF Melky Cabrera moves into the two-hole.
Fantasy Tip: There's not much to like about Saladino hitting ninth for DFS purposes against King Felix in his return. However, both Melky and Morneau can be under-the-radar value plays in prime lineup spots. Hernandez has put up good numbers but isn't his usual dominant self this year and is making his first start back today after a long layoff.

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu, OF Melky Cabrera and OF Adam Eaton each finished 2-for-4 Saturday, July 16, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Abreu had a pair of doubles, while Eaton had a double and a stolen base.
Fantasy Tip: All three are must-start fantasy options in all AL-only leagues and most mixed formats. Cabrera is hitting .296 overall and has the highest slugging percentage of the three at .450, but Abreu is right on his heels at .433. Eaton is up to 11 steals and helps fantasy owners with occasional power and speed.

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera (wrist) is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Sunday, July 3. OF Avisail Garcia will start in left field and is batting eighth. C Alex Avila will serve as the designated hitter, while C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Navarro is hitting .333 with two extra base hits and four RBI over the last seven days and should be a starting candidate for some daily fantasy leagues. Garcia and Avila should be used in AL-only leagues but may not have much value in mixed leagues.

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera (wrist) expects to return to the lineup Monday, July 4, against the New York Yankees.
