White Sox | Chris Sale pitches well vs. CLE

Mon, 18 May 2015 20:56:24 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale allowed one run on four hits in eight innings against the Cleveland Indians Monday, May 18. He struck out seven batters and walked two during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has pitched eight innings in each of the last two games and has allowed only three runs combined in those games. He is scheduled to pitch against the Minnesota Twins in his next start and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

White Sox | Chris Sale drops appeal

Thu, 07 May 2015 11:02:44 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale, as expected, dropped his appeal of a five-game suspension, and he'll start serving it Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: As a result of Sale's and Jeff Samardzija's suspensions, Carlos Rodon ($4,200, 8.4% of cap), the team's prized left-handed starting pitching prospect, will make his first major league start against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday. This southpaw has high-strikeout upside, but he'll be a risk/reward play against a good hitting team this weekend at FantasyScore.

White Sox | Chris Sale struggling

Thu, 07 May 2015 10:16:41 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale gave up five runs and seven hits and tied a career high with five walks in 5 1/3 innings against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, May 6, and that follows his previous outing where he allowed nine runs (eight earned) on nine hits in just three innings to the Minnesota Twins. It's the first time since 2012 that he's had back-to-back non-quality starts. Sale currently has a 5.93 ERA and a .309 average against in his first five starts.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Sale's ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) slow start in 2015 can be attributed to his late start because of a foot injury in spring training. His .378 BABIP and 63.7% strand rate suggest he's been a bit unlucky so far, though, so expect him to straighten things out eventually. It may be the perfect time to buy low on him in traditional leagues.

White Sox | Chris Sale likes facing Detroit

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:28:34 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale is 6-5 with a 2.85 ERA and 112 strikeouts in 98 innings in his career against the Detroit Tigers, including six innings of one-hit ball against them April 18 on the road. He has not lost to Detroit in his last three starts against them dating back to last year, and he nine straight quality starts against them since 2013. However, he allowed nine runs (eight earned) in one of his worst career starts against the Minnesota Twins last Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) may be avoided by a lot of daily gamers tonight after his rough outing against the Twins, which could actually make him even more of a asset at FantasyScore.

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.

White Sox | Chris Sale works in minor-league game

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

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (foot) allowed a run and three hits with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a minor-league game in Arizona Monday, April 6. He is on target to come off the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 12, against the Minnesota Twins.

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).
