White Sox | Avisail Garcia on the bench

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 08:45:31 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Saturday, July 18. OF J.B. Shuck will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) likely will return to the starting lineup in the next game or two. Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has posted a solid .276 batting average in limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options to use.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche at cleanup

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 09:18:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche flip-flopped with OF Avisail Garcia and is hitting cleanup Thursday, July 9, with Garcia hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) really hasn't done anything to warrant the upgrade in the order. He has a .182 average this month and has hit R.A. Dickey to a .211 clip in his career. Meanwhile, Garcia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is more enticing with a .407-0-2 line in July. Anything can happen with a knuckler, though, so neither are great buys on FantasyScore.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia goes hitless

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 21:06:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia was hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts Tuesday, July 7, against the Toronto Blue Jays to snap a nine-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,100; or 8.2% of cap) is still a solid mid-level FantasyScore value despite the hitless game.

White Sox | Jose Abreu batting second

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 10:07:13 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu is batting second against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan Saturday, June 27. It marks the first time in Abreu's major league career that he is hitting in the No. 2 spot. OF Avisail Garcia will bat in the No. 3 spot, followed by DH Adam LaRoche, OF Melky Cabrera and SS Alexei Ramirez.

Fantasy Tip: The White Sox have scored 19 runs in their last four games, so it's uncertain what brought upon this lineup shakeup. Abreu ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is 2-for-5 in his career against Ryan and is batting .323 over the last week.

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:59:31 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia was dropped to sixth in the order Wednesday, June 24, against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is hitting just .149 in June and probably should be avoided on FantasyScore.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia out of lineup

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 15:44:46 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is resting Thursday, June 18, against the Pittsburgh Pirates and RHP Gerrit Cole. OF J.B. Shuck will start in right field and hit second in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting .281 on the season, while walking more than he's striking out. Shuck has been feasting off righties this season, to the tune of a .306 batting average, making him an excellent, cost-effective FantasyScore option, despite the tough matchup.

Sat, 30 May 2015 11:58:29 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) is back in the starting lineup against the Houston Astros Saturday, May 30, batting third.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) had been sidelined for several days with knee inflammation. You may want to avoid using him in FantasyScore until he has demonstrated he is completely healthy.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia continues to sit

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:01:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, May 29. OF J.B. Shuck is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia continues to be day-to-day with inflammation in his knee. Continue to check back for updates. Shuck ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has recorded two hits in three of his last four starts while filling in for Garcia, and he's an under-the-radar FantasyScore option that can also contribute with his speed. However, Shuck is probably nothing more than a deep sleeper play for the time being.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia sits out both games

Thu, 28 May 2015 15:32:54 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) sat out both games of the doubleheader Thursday, May 28, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore until he achieves full health. J.B. Shuck ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) continues starting in right field, but he's purely a GPP option.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia sitting

Thu, 28 May 2015 07:49:45 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 28, against the Baltimore Orioles in Game 1 of their doubleheader. OF J.B. Shuck is starting in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) shouldn't be considered as anything more than a cap-saving play with today's small slate of games.
