Fantasy Tip: Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is batting .273 with no home runs and 15 RBIs through 139 at-bats this season. Better outfield options are available in FantasyScore for a similar price.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 12:04:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Olt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has primarily served as the team's third baseman over the last few weeks but moves across the diamond to play first in the regular-season finale. Since Sept. 1, he is batting just .211 with three home runs, four RBIs and 29 strikeouts in 76 at-bats. Avoid using him in FantasyScore.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 20:01:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) capped off a strong season by setting the club record, and his strikeout potential should make him one of the first pitchers selected in drafts when the 2016 season rolls around.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 15:39:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) lands in a slam-dunk matchup, and he has shown well when given an opportunity this season with a .351 on-base percentage. There isn't a lot of upside, but Simon has allowed a .877 OPS to left-handed hitters. Shuck is a nice low-priced target at FantasyScore Friday.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 15:32:36 -0700
Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has been relegated to bench duty late in the season, so he checks out a flier for FantasyScore players Friday. However, it is a high-end matchup with Simon ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) allowing 20 runs over his past 25 1/3 innings. Make sure to avoid Abreu ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday.

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 14:24:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Another game, another starting lineup without LaRoche ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in it. The veteran has clearly been leapfrogged on the depth chart, and there is no reason to hold onto LaRoche is seasonal leagues.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 14:00:00 -0700
Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (knee) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. OF Paulo Orlando is starting in center field and batting ninth against Chicago White Sox OF John Danks Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Cain ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He left the game early Wednesday, Sept. 30, due to a right knee contusion and could be in danger of being rested again this weekend. Orlando ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has played sparingly, but he checks out as a potential value play at FantasyScore Thursday.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 14:39:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is essentially a bench player at this stage, as the White Sox are consistently giving at-bats to others. There is no reason to own him in seasonal formats at this point, and his outlook for the 2016 season is less than favorable.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 09:07:03 -0700
Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu will make an attempt to learn English to improve his leadership role on the team this winter. Abreu has 29 home runs and 98 RBI this year after slugging 36 homers and driving in 107 runs in his rookie season in 2014. He's trying to become the only player since Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols in 2001-2002 with at least 30 home runs and 100 RBI in each of their first two major league seasons.
Fantasy Tip: Abreu's ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) are slightly down from his impressive rookie season, but he remains one of the best all-around slugging first baseman in the game today, and he continues to be a strong choice for your FantasyScore lineups.

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche and C Tyler Flowers are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 29. OF Trayce Thompson is starting in left field and hitting cleanup against Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto, while C Geovany Soto is doing the catching and batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: The rookie Thompson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has intriguing upside but is batting only .214 (15-for-70) with three home runs and nine RBI in September. He's a sleeper pick this evening against Cueto if you're feeling lucky. Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .222 (41-for-185) on the year and is even more of a gamble in daily leagues.
Mon, 28 Sep 2015 04:22:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), to say the least, has had a disappointing 2015. He hoped to parlay South Side success into a lucrative free-agent deal, but that won't happen for now. Even though he could face a lineup with some starters being rested, it's not worth your effort to put him in.
Mon, 28 Sep 2015 04:18:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Severino ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) has been a surprise success in the second half of the campaign, and his FantasyScore price reflects that. Still, Severino makes a decent addition to your lineup and will likely get one more turn in the rotation before season's end.
Sun, 27 Sep 2015 07:28:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: J.B. Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) draws into the lineup and is batting fifth against New York SP Luis Severino ($7,600, 15.2% of cap), and Shuck could be an off-the-radar outfield option at FantasyScore Sunday. Rob Brantly ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) and Tyler Saladino ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) are nothing more than desperation fliers Sunday.
Sat, 26 Sep 2015 10:59:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is just 1-for-16 against the Yankees this season and is hitting .189 with two home runs and six RBIs this month. Better second base options are available in FantasyScore, so he should be avoided.
