White Sox | Jeff Samardzija back in win column

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 17:06:23 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija ended his six-game losing streak by beating the Minnesota Twins Thursday, Sept. 3. It was his first win since July 28, and he had an 8.33 ERA in his last seven starts and had given up nine home runs in that span. Samardzija allowed five hits and four earned runs while walking four and striking out four in 6 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Even though he recorded the victory, Samardzija ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) left a lot to be desired, and he also surrendered another long ball. His 4.85 ERA and 1.29 WHIP on the season isn't pretty, and it looks like he'll continue to be a very shaky starting option for daily gamers in September.

White Sox | Erik Johnson starting Sunday

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 16:29:55 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Erik Johnson will start against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, Sept. 6, according to manager Robin Ventura, with SP Chris Sale being pushed back a day to start at home against the Cleveland Indians Monday, Sept. 7. Johnson went 11-8 with a 2.37 ERA with Class AAA Charlotte this year.

Fantasy Tip: This could only be a spot start for Johnson, so he's unlikely to have any kind of fantasy value in the season's final month. Using him on FantasyScore against the first-place Royals also wouldn't be recommended.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers out Thursday

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 09:17:22 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. C Geovany Soto is starting and is hitting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: On a day with very few games to choose from on FantasyScore and when many starting catchers could be rested, you could certainly do worse than Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) as your starting catcher.

White Sox | Tyler Saladino leading off vs. Twins

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:25:46 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Tyler Saladino is playing shortstop and batting first against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Wednesday, Sept. 2. SS Alexei Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is nothing more than a flier at FantasyScore Wednesday. He has an uninspiring .211/.295/.368 slash line against lefties this year with an underwhelming .511 OPS over his past 22 games. The lineup spot is intriguing, but his recent form makes him extremely risky. Gordon Beckham ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is also making his second consecutive start at third base, but he is nothing more than a dice roll in daily contests. At the same time, though, Beckham could have some late-season value in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

White Sox | Geovany Soto batting sixth vs. Twins

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:19:35 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Geovany Soto is batting sixth as the designated hitter against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Wednesday, Sept. 2. 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been opportunistic against lefties with a .325/.400/.575 slash line through 45 plate appearances this season. He stands as a potential value play at FantasyScore Wednesday.

White Sox | Adam Eaton sitting vs. Twins

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:10:52 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. OF Trayce Thompson is starting in center field and batting fifth against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: While it is a small sample size, Thompson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been a beast this season, and especially against lefties. Through 26 plate appearances, he has a .480/.500/.920 slash line against southpaws and is a great FantasyScore play at his cap hit.

White Sox | Tyler Saladino hitting second on Tuesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:47:08 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Tyler Saladino is hitting second for the second time in three days. Saladino is up against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) may be batting second to rejuvenate his bat. Most of his action (.245-3-14) comes from the second spot in the lineup, so if you're looking for a low-cost third baseman on FantasyScore he is a decent option.

White Sox | Four hits for Melky Cabrera

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 18:44:29 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and a double in a 6-5 win over the Seattle Mariners Sunday, Aug. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) seems to be heating back up, and he has multi-hit efforts in four of his last six games. Feel free to use him as a mid-priced option at FantasyScore.

White Sox | Geovany Soto draws in against Seattle

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:53:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Geovany Soto is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Edgar Olmos Sunday, Aug. 30. C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been a beast against southpaws this season with a .351/.429/.622 slash line over 42 plate appearances. He stands as a potential budget play for FantasyScore players Sunday.

White Sox | Trayce Thompson batting fifth vs. Seattle

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:45:12 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Trayce Thompson is starting in right field and batting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Edgar Olmos Sunday, Aug. 30. 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been a huge boost against lefties in the heart of the lineup for Chicago. While it is a small sample size, he is 12-for-20 with three doubles, a triple and two home runs against southpaws this season. At his FantasyScore cap hit, you can lock him into your lineup as budget play.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija struggles again

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 23:46:21 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija dropped to 8-11 overall Saturday, Aug. 29, with a 7-6 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Samardzija finished with eight strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. He gave up five runs and eight hits with three walks.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has gone from being highly coveted in the offseason to people wondering just what the heck is a matter with him. He finished August with an 0-6 mark and an ERA above 9.00. He should be avoided at all costs.

White Sox | Big night for Adam Eaton

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 20:56:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton went 3-for-3 with three runs scored in a 4-2 win over the Seattle Mariners Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Eaton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been struggling in the month of August, and until he strings together a few good games, he is a risky play at his current price at FantasyScore.

White Sox | Trayce Thompson batting fifth

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:21:54 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Trayce Thompson is starting in right field and batting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias Thursday, Aug. 27. 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 10-for-17 with two home runs and five RBI against southpaws to start his major league career. It is obviously an unsustainable pace, but given Thompson's salary, he is worth a long look at FantasyScore Thursday. LaRoche ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) stands to lose starts against lefties to the rookie going forward.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers receives night off

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:54:07 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Geovany Soto is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Flowers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has really struggled down the stretch with a .205/.263/.273 slash line in the second half. He should be avoided everywhere but cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) owns a .324/.410/.618 line over 39 plate appearances against lefties this season, and he checks out as a potential value play at FantasyScore Tuesday.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche out of the lineup

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:50:28 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. OF Trayce Thompson draws into the lineup and is batting fifth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid LaRoche ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Tuesday. The veteran is struggling through an awful campaign and doesn't warrant a roster spot in the majority of seasonal leagues. Thompson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 9-for-19 to start his career, and he checks out as an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Tuesday.
