Chicago White Sox RP Javy Guerra is back with the team, and he is expected to be activated from the bereavement list Saturday, Aug. 23.

Chicago White Sox RP Javy Guerra has been placed on the bereavement list. In a corresponding move, RP Eric Surkamp has been called up from Triple-A Charlotte.

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list Thursday, July 24, with right shoulder inflammation. In a corresponding move, RP Andre Rienzo was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.
Fantasy Tip: Putnam was getting looks in the ninth inning, so with him out of the committee, Jake Petricka should see more opportunities. Javy Guerra and Daniel Webb could also get an occasional chance. Matt Lindstrom should take over closing duties, when he returns from his ankle injury. However, Perticka is an immediate add, with Guerra and Webb more speculative additions, for those chasing saves.

Chicago White Sox RP Javy Guerra allowed two earned runs and two hits in a blown save and loss against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, July 9. It was Guerra's second blown save of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Guerra's ERA ballooned from 1.86 to 2.70 as a result of the poor appearance, which certainly doesn't help those fantasy owners in rotisserie formats who use him for his solid ERA and WHIP.

Chicago White Sox RP Ronald Belisario will no longer be the team's closer, according to manager Robin Ventura. RP Jake Petricka received the save Friday, June 27, and is an option to close. Ventura has not decided who will fill the role at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Petricka likely will be in the mix since he got the chance Friday. Zach Putnam and Javy Guerra could also receive save chances in the upcoming weeks. Matt Lindstrom (ankle) could also be back in a few weeks and take over the role. Owners could consider adding one of them at this point but could also wait to see if Ventura names a closer.

Chicago White Sox CL Ronald Belisario is still the team's closer, according to manager Robin Ventura. "You do have the ability to change it any time you want, but right now I would say, if we're winning tonight, he's going back out there," Ventura said Tuesday, June 24. "That's just the way it is."
Fantasy Tip: Ventura is standing by his closer for now, but Belisario owns an ugly 5.50 ERA so a change could be coming sooner rather than later. If you are desperate for saves, Javy Guerra and Zach Putnam are the two players to consider stashing.

Chicago White Sox CL Ronald Belisario blew his fourth save Monday, June 23, allowing a three-run homer. It was his first blown save in nearly a month.
Fantasy Tip: The outing raised his ERA from 4.79 to 5.50, and his seat should start to get warmer. He has had little competition for the role, however. Daniel Webb is still struggling with his control, and Scott Downs' best days are behind him. Javy Guerra is one to watch. The former Los Angeles Dodgers closer has 12 K's in 12 1/3 innings and a 2.19 ERA.
