White Sox | Alex Avila not starting

Sat, 21 May 2016 09:51:22 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Saturday, May 21. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro has five hits in his last four games and can be a starting option in two-catcher leagues as well as some daily fantasy leagues.

White Sox | Alex Avila ends RBI drought

Fri, 13 May 2016 19:48:23 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila recorded his first RBI in 33 at-bats this year, finishing 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in a 7-1 win over the New York Yankees Friday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries have contributed to Avila's slow start, and he can be left on waivers outside of two-catcher leagues.

White Sox | Alex Avila back from DL

Mon, 09 May 2016 12:11:03 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list and is hitting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Monday, May 9. C Dioner Navarro will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro may continue to see more starts behind the plate, but Avila's return cuts into his time and limits his fantasy value. Both backstops are more of No. 2 catching options in AL-only or two-catcher setups.

White Sox | Alex Avila hitless in Charlotte

Fri, 06 May 2016 22:23:28 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila (hamstring) was hitless in an at-bats with a walk to kick off his minor-league rehab assignment with Class AAA Pawtucket Friday, May 6. Manager Robin Ventura said Avila could re-join the big club as soon as Monday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: With Avila, he is worth using as a No. 2 receiver in AL-only fantasy leagues and as a salary saver in DFS when healthy.

White Sox | Alex Avila to begin rehab assignment

Thu, 05 May 2016 17:09:01 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila (hamstring) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Class AAA Charlotte Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Avila is making sufficient progress from his hamstring injury and could be activated after spending the minimum 15 days on the disabled list. When healthy, he should be viewed exclusively as an option for AL-only and two-catcher fantasy leagues. Dioner Navarro will continue to see most of the playing time behind the plate in Avila's absence, with Hector Sanchez backing him up.

White Sox | Alex Avila to DL

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 09:36:51 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 24, with a strained left hamstring. C Kevan Smith was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Dioner Navarro should do the majority of the catching for the Pale Hose with Avila out. Navarro is hitting only .129 (4-for-31), though, and he's only an option for fantasy owners if you're desperate and looking for a second catcher in deeper leagues.

White Sox | Three regulars return to ChiSox lineup

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:27:55 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins, OF Avisail Garcia and C Alex Avila are back in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: All three players have gotten off to slow starts at the plate, with Rollins hitting .217 and Garcia (.146) and Avila (.185) both batting below the Mendoza Line. They should be avoided in daily fantasy games for the foreseeable future.

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 | Alex Avila out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 09:29:40 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin Sunday, April 10. C Dioner Navarro will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro is 1-for-8 through his first two games of the regular season but usually performs better at the plate if he receives consistent playing time. The 32-year-old should be viewed as a potential flier for daily fantasy contests.

White Sox | Dioner Navarro catching Monday

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 15:57:04 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox C Dioner Navarro is catching over C Alex Avila against Oakland Athletics C Rich Hill on opening day Monday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: Avila was initially slated to start against right-hander Sonny Gray, but he was scratched due to food poisoning in favor of the lefty Hill. Navarro has a little pop in his bat for a catcher but doesn't stick out in any one category. He'll be a sleeper option at catcher in daily formats Monday.
