Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) will be used in middle relief, but he will not be working in the closer's role. Manager Robin Ventura would not commit to an exact role, but said Lindstrom would be used anywhere from the sixth to eight inning.
Fantasy Tip: Lindstrom is worth grabbing in AL-only fantasy leagues for help in the ERA and WHIP categories in rotisserie formats, and as an insurance policy for owners of Jake Petricka, in the event he struggles.

The Chicago White Sox activated RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) from the disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 12.
Fantasy Tip: Lindstrom is a very real threat to steal the ninth-inning closing duties from Jake Petricka for the remainder of the season. They could ease Lindstrom back in in less-stressful innings to start, though. Add Lindstrom immediately if you're chasing saves.

Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) could return within a week, manager Robin Ventura said Thursday, Aug. 7.

Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) and OF Avisail Garcia (shoulder) are getting close to going on rehab assignments.

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) is expected to throw a simulated game Tuesday, July 29, in Detroit.
Fantasy Tip: This is expected to be the final step before he begins a minor league rehab assignment. Lindstrom is expected to regain closing duties for the White Sox once he is activated from the disabled list. He is worth stashing away on your bench if you can afford the roster spot. For now, RPs Zach Putnam and Jake Petricka are sharing closing duties on the South Side and should be owned in AL-only formats.

Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) threw live batting practice Thursday, July 24. He expects to throw a simulated game before going on a rehab assignment. Lindstrom noted he felt good during fielding drills.
Fantasy Tip: Lindstrom is expected to return to the closer's role when he rejoins the team. He should be on your radar in all formats, and he is worth stashing now, if you can sacrifice the bench slot in the meantime.

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) has an issue around the middle of his right (throwing) shoulder, near the joint. He felt it in the last few outings and was hoping rest over the All-Star break would help it heal.
Fantasy Tip: Obviously, since he's now on the DL, it hasn't. Jake Petricka is the fantasy pickup as he is in the lead for saves at the moment. However, he may cede those duties if Matt Lindstrom (ankle) proves healthy in the next few weeks.
