White Sox | Three CWS regulars sitting Sunday

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 09:35:21 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera, C Alex Avila and SS Jimmy Rollins are out of the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, April 17. OF Jerry Sands will bat fifth and serve as the designated hitter, C Dioner Navarro will bat eighth and SS Tyler Saladino will bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino and Sands are a combined 5-for-14 at the dish with one home run and four RBI, making them worthy of consideration as inexpensive fliers for daily games. Navarro is 1-for-16 and should be avoided in all formats during this ice-cold stretch.

White Sox | Jimmy Rollins sitting out

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 07:59:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins is out of the lineup Thursday, April 14, with OF Melky Cabrera sliding up to hit second.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Saladino is hitting ninth against Ervin Santana, and he's not much of a one-day flyer at shortstop. Cabrera is off to a .300 start and has some DFS upside hitting ahead of Jose Abreu.

White Sox | Austin Jackson with day off

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 09:56:15 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 7. OF J.B. Shuck gets a start in left field and is hitting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman. Also, OF Melky Cabrera is serving as the designated hitter and is in the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck is a dice roll as a cheap flier in daily games today with Graveman starting after dealing with the flu earlier this week. Cabrera is off to another slow start after the first two games, but he gains some intrigue with a move up the lineup.

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

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche (knee) remains out of the lineup Monday, Sept. 21, for the first game of a doubleheader. OF Melky Cabrera is serving as the designated hitter and OF Trayce Thompson is starting in left field and batting fifth against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan.

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.

White Sox | Melky Cabrera out of lineup

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 11:05:10 -0700

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.
