White Sox | Chris Sale suspended five games

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:42:24 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale has been suspended five games for his involvement in an altercation with the Kansas City Royals earlier this week.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) will be given the chance to appeal his suspension, so he may none serve the suspension right away. Sale has posted solid numbers in each of his starts this season and is a solid option on FantasyScore.

White Sox | Chris Sale ejected after brawl

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 23:16:20 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale was ejected Thursday, April 24, after a bench-clearing brawl with the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Sale is one of the best pitchers in baseball, and a suspension that led to a missed start or two would hurt in traditional formats.

White Sox | Chris Sale has good history against DET

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:47:06 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale has a 2.84 ERA with 106 strikeouts in 92 innings in his career against the Detroit Tigers, who he faces Saturday, April 18. Tigers are hitting .220 against him, but he is only 5-5 against the Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: While Sale ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) is typically a dynamite option at FantasyScore every time he toes the rubber, it might be hard to justify paying up for him tomorrow while going up against the hot Tigers offense.

White Sox | Chris Sale strong in first outing

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 14:25:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale struck out eight batters in six innings of work Sunday, April 12, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) was facing the Minnesota Twins, so that's not a big reason to get excited. Still, this was Sale's first start following the foot issue that dogged him through spring training, and it was a good one. This should soothe Sale owners moving forward.

White Sox | Chris Sale set to return Sunday

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 15:39:03 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (foot) is expected to start against the Detroit Tigers Saunday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: A lot can change before Sunday, however the good news is Sale will return to the hill soon. The Tigers present a difficult matchup, and at Sale's ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) price, it might not be the best time to utilize the lefty in FantasyScore contests. In seasonal formats, there is far less risk.

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 20:26:46 -0700

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners will want to see Sale work in at least one full game without any setbacks before pulling the trigger on him at $8,100 (or 16.2% of cap).

White Sox | Chris Sale to throw later in week

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 11:16:23 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (foot) is scheduled to throw a side session Friday, April 10, and throw off a mound Sunday, April 12. Sale will join the team Tuesday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Sale ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) will only miss one or two starts because of his foot injury. Sale could be limited in his first start back since he missed spring training, but he is still a solid option in FantasyScore.

White Sox | Chris Sale throws in minors game

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:44:36 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (foot) threw 72 pitches in five innings in a minor league game Monday, April 6, and he struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) is expected to miss just his first start of the 2015 season. He should be good to go and fine to use at FantasyScore when he makes his season debut early this month.

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 13:54:28 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) should be out only one start, but he could miss a little more time. Leave him alone until Sale returns to active duty.

White Sox | Chris Sale sits down 13

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 15:10:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (ankle, foot) said he felt fine after pitching his first competitive innings of the spring in a minor league game Wednesday, April 1. Sale struck out 13 batters and allowed a single run. He will not begin the season with the team, but Saturday, April 11, or Sunday, April 12, remains the target for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Sale ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) in FantasyScore contests until there is an official announcement on when he'll return. In seasonal formats, he is a slam-dunk No. 1 starter for your fantasy rotation who boast high-end strikeout potential. Hone in on Sale in the early middle rounds of drafts.
