White Sox | Brett Lawrie continues recent tear

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 14:47:14 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie went 3-for-4 with two home runs - including one inside-the-park - and three RBI in a losing cause against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, June 25. After hitting .160 (12-for-75) through the first 19 games of June, Lawrie is 8-for-12 over his last three contests.

Fantasy Tip: Both homers came with the bases empty. Lawrie ranks among the top 10 in the majors with 88 strikeouts, which is a big part of the reason he can run so hot-and-cold. His power potential makes him an intriguing option in a middle infield spot in fantasy, but his mediocre contributions in runs (30) and steals (four) - along with his .245 average - make him a bit of a fringe starting option otherwise.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia, Alex Avila starting

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 08:46:31 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia and C Alex Avila are back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Sunday, June 5. In addition, OF Jason Coats (face) is back in left field and hitting second, while INF Leury Garcia is batting fifth and playing second base. 2B Brett Lawrie and OF J.B. Shuck are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Avisail Garcia is batting .265 with three home runs and 14 RBI in 98 at-bats on the road this season and should be viewed as a viable outfield option in most fantasy formats. Leury Garcia and Avila should only be viewed as sources of desperation cap relief in DFS contests.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie hitting second against Mets

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:26:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie is hitting second against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: With Austin Jackson out of the lineup in an NL park, Lawrie benefits with a move up the order. It's good news for his daily value, but Matz has been one of New York's most consistent pitcher when healthy. Lawrie does own a .306 average against lefties with a home run this year, though, so he wouldn't be a terrible daily selection.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie drives in three

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:01:30 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie went 2-for-2 with one home run and three RBI in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie has recorded four hits and three RBI over his last three games before entering the second game of the doubleheader. He has seen a dip on his batting average this month but is still a decent option in deeper leagues.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia out for Game 1

Mon, 23 May 2016 11:04:50 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians Monday, May 23. 2B Brett Lawrie is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth. 2B Carlos Sanchez gets a start at second base and is hitting seventh against Indians SP Michael Clevinger.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie hasn't been producing lately and is 2-for-23 (.087) with just one double and 10 strikeouts in his last six games. Both he and Sanchez are options to avoid in DFS action this afternoon.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie, Avisail Garcia sitting

Thu, 19 May 2016 14:51:33 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie and OF Avisail Garcia are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19. 2B Carlos Sanchez is starting at the keystone and hitting second, while OF Jerry Sands is serving as the designated hitter and is batting seventh against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh. Also, SS Jimmy Rollins drops to sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie is hitless in his last three games and is batting .228 (13-for-57) this month after a hot April. If you have other options, consider benching him for a spell in traditional leagues. Sanchez has never hit over .250 in three years in the majors and is a low-end middle infield option. Sands has respectable power but is another low-end dart throw in DFS play.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie hits fifth long fly

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:24:24 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during the White Sox's 6-5 loss to the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie is having a nice start to 2016 with 18 runs, five home runs, 16 RBI, two stolen bases and a .278/.372/.476 slash line. A five-category return is well within reach, and Lawrie sets up nicely in the bottom half of a solid lineup. If there is still a buy-low window open, look to pounce. At this point, Lawrie is a viable starter in the majority of seasonal leagues.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie on a roll

Sun, 01 May 2016 14:20:44 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie continued to haunt the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, May 01, going 3-for-3 while homering for the third straight game.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie is batting .290 with four home runs and 10 RBI on the season, so he can thank Camden Yards for playing a part in his recent power display. Still, his overall numbers are more than serviceable for a fantasy second baseman, and he now appears to be well on track to surpass last year's career high of 16 homers. He should remain in fantasy lineups when the White Sox begin a series at home against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie avoids arbitration

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 15:34:16 -0800

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie avoided arbitration Thursday, Jan. 14, by agreeing on a one-year, $4.125 million deal.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie will likely be Chicago's starting second baseman this year, but he'll maintain third base eligibility, too. He was finally able to stay healthy over a full season and set career highs in home runs (16) and RBI (60) with the Oakland Athletics. He could best those numbers in a better hitting environment in Chicago with another healthy season.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie likely shifting to 2B

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 10:08:26 -0800

Chicago White Sox 3B Brett Lawrie is likely to shift to second base after the team acquired 3B Todd Frazier Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie's power would enhance his stature more at second base than at third base. The problem with him has always been durability. Lawrie is a midrange second baseman with upside if eligible in mixed leagues.
