Fantasy Tip: Abreu ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is absolutely unstoppable during this streak. Keep playing him as long as his bat is this hot.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been dealing with a knee issue this week. It's not believed to be serious, but if not treated and rested properly, it could create problems for the slugger that is having a fine season. Stay tuned. J.B. Shuck ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is likely to take over in right field for Garcia tonight against Minnesota Twins starter Phil Hughes, and Shuck could be a sleeper pick right before rosters lock at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Noesi ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has a 5.60 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 17 2/3 innings over four starts this year despite an 8.2 K/9 rate. Against the Blue Jays on the road, you should look to avoid Noesi at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is a hot play in FantasyScore action for daily gamers lately. Finding reliable production among hitters always eases the mind, but you'll be paying for his bat. Ride him while he's playing well and focus on taking chances with other areas of your lineup.

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon threw just 56 of his 103 pitches for strikes in his outing Wednesday, May 20, and he walked five hitters in six innings. He has allowed 13 hits and eight earned runs in 16 innings in his first three starts, while striking out 17 and walking 15. He threw no changeups and just 13 of his 29 sliders for strikes Wednesday. "Guys are a little more patient. You just have to throw strikes," Rodon said. "When it comes down to the nitty-gritty, that's it right there. They lay off those good sliders that usually get chased. They got in those counts where they can hit and it's tough."
Fantasy Tip: Rodon ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is getting his first taste of the big leagues at a young age (22), so growing pains should be expected. He has nasty stuff that should eventually set him up to be an ace, but he's not there yet. Until he makes adjustments, he'll be a risk/reward commodity at FantasyScore with high-strikeout upside.
Thu, 21 May 2015 14:37:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Moss ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) will likely regulate back to starting solely against right-handed pitchers with Carlos Santana ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) back in the mix after missing four games with back spasms. Moss hasn't taken off at the dish thus far, and he is currently sporting a .706 OPS with 15 runs, six home runs and 24 RBI.
Thu, 21 May 2015 14:22:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bonifaco ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is 5-for-23 with a .467 OPS through his six starts this season, and he is firmly entrenched in a bench role. FantasyScore players bargain hunting should be able to find a superior option, as stretching out an extra-base hit or swiping a base are his only paths to having an impact in daily contests.
Thu, 21 May 2015 14:11:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gillaspie ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) in all formats Thursday. He has picked up his pace at the plate lately with a 15-for-48 run dating back to Tuesday, April 28, and he is should be owned in the majority of deep mixed leagues. Beckham ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier by FantasyScore players Thursday.
Thu, 21 May 2015 14:06:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is currently sporting a 4-for-27 run dating back to Saturday, May 2, and he is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players.
Thu, 21 May 2015 00:42:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rodon ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will penalize you in leagues where walks are an issue, but he's still worth looking at depending on the matchup. Rodon gave up one run on four hits in six innings in this latest start, which isn't bad at all.
Tue, 19 May 2015 04:36:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Abreu ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) looks like he is hitting well once again. The White Sox as a team are warming up after a slow start at the plate, so it is worth keeping Abreu in your lineup for the time being.
Mon, 18 May 2015 20:56:24 -0700
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.

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) left the game early Monday, May 18, because of knee inflammation, according to manager Robin Ventura. Ventura said the team was just being cautious with Garcia.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look out for any updates on Garcia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) over the next day. Garcia could sit out a game or two depending on the severity of the injury, but it does not look to be serious. Garcia is hitting .387 this month and should be an option on FantasyScore when healthy.
Mon, 18 May 2015 19:40:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) was 11-for-22 during a five game hit streak coming into this one. It's horrendous timing if this is indeed a serious injury. Either way, Garcia will need to be stashed in season-long leagues of 10 teams or more.
Sun, 17 May 2015 10:38:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) probably is not playing since the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has not received a lot of playing time this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.
