White Sox | Geovany Soto catching Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:19:30 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Geovany Soto will start behind the plate against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, July 4, batting eighth against SP Chris Tillman.

Fantasy Tip: C Tyler Flowers ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is getting a scheduled day off. Soto ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is good for salary cap relief in FantasyScore but not much else.

White Sox | John Danks rebounds

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 21:26:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks allowed five hits over seven scoreless innings against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, July 3, in his first start after being skipped in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Danks ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) was 0-4 with a 6.84 ERA in his previous four starts, but he was sharp Friday. However, he still owns a 4.95 ERA for the year and isn't worth starting at FantasyScore after one good outing.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon starting Sunday

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:28:52 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon is starting against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has been extremely inconsistent, but there is no doubting his upside. Against Baltimore, though, he projects as a flier No. 2 pitcher option at FantasyScore. He is worth rostering in the majority of seasonal leagues, but owners will want to be picky with when they utilize him.

White Sox | Chris Sale pushed back to Monday

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:22:56 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale will make his next start against the Toronto Blue Jays Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: This has been talked about as a means to provide Sale ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) extra rest after his heavy workload recently. He has thrown 76 innings over his past 10 starts with a 1.78 ERA and 115 strikeouts and been as good as any pitcher in baseball. Toronto will be a tough task, but it is difficult to fade Sale at FantasyScore in his current form.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche still out vs. Cards

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:28:38 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option for a designated hitter, LaRoche ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) hasn't started either of the first two games of the series. He has been an extreme disappoint this season with a .233/.340/.400 slash line and just 31 RBI through his first 71 games this season. Don't rule out a small bounce back in the second half, but at 35, LaRoche's best days are in the rear-view mirror.

White Sox | Chris Sale might be pushed back

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:48:36 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale might have his next start pushed back to provide extra rest due to his recent workload. SP Carlos Rodon would start against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, July 5, in that case.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) has thrown 76 innings over his past 10 starts with a 1.78 ERA and 115 strikeouts. He has been as good as any pitcher in baseball, so being cautious shouldn't concern fantasy owners. Check back for an official announcement on the rotation plans for Chicago.

White Sox | Jose Quintana looking for support

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:30:39 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana is the probable starter for Wednesday, July 1, against the St. Louis Cardinals. He is 2-6 over his past 12 starts, but he has posted a solid 3.10 ERA during the span.

Fantasy Tip: Quintana ($5,800; or 11.6% of cap) hasn't been getting much in the way of run support, but he has still been turning in solid efforts of FantasyScore players.

White Sox | Chris Sale ties strikeout record

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:29:03 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale struck out 12 batters over eight innings in a no-decision Tuesday, June 30, against the St. Louis Cardinals. He tied a major league record by striking out 10 in at least eight consecutive starts, tying former SP Pedro Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($9.700; or 19.4% of cap) has a high price tag, but he has been a great play for FantasyScore players. Eventually his double-digit strikeouts streak will end, but ride that wave until it crashes.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon to skip a turn

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:08:39 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon will skip his next turn in the rotation. The White Sox are trying to keep Rodon healthy and limit his innings over the full season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has seen his ups and downs in his rookie season, and although he's striking out 8.9 hitters per nine innings, he's having problems with control (5.0 walks per nine innings). His upside remains enticing for fantasy owners, although it'll be tempered if the White Sox rest him more often in the second half.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche out in NL park

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:06:44 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 30, without the designated hitter in a National League stadium.

Fantasy Tip: Be careful of using LaRoche ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) on FantasyScore in this series against the Cards without a DH. Jose Abreu could also sit out a game if LaRoche enters the lineup at first base. Just make sure to double check this week on LaRoche before clicking his name in all fantasy formats.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija attracting interest

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 11:26:28 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Los Angeles Dodgers, Minnesota Twins, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals and Toronto Blue Jays are interested in Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Sunday, June 28, Samardzija ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) had posted a 5.94 ERA through six June starts, which hasn't exactly helped his trade value. Avoid using him in FantasyScore until he starts producing better results.

White Sox | Carlos Sanchez will not start

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 09:20:51 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Carlos Sanchez is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP David Price Sunday, June 28. 2B Emilio Bonifacio will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) likely is receiving the day off Sunday. Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has only one hit in 17 at-bats this month and should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers sitting out

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 09:01:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP David Price Sunday, June 28. C Geovany Soto will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Flowers ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should return to the lineup for the next game and probably is receiving a day off. Soto ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has three hits and two RBI in his last three games but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 10:10:36 -0700

Chicago White Sox INF Emilio Bonifacio is batting ninth and playing second base against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is only hitting .162 this season and is 1-for-17 during the month of June. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this afternoon.

White Sox | Gordon Beckham hitting seventh

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 10:09:57 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Gordon Beckham is batting seventh Saturday, June 27, against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has just one hit in 19 at-bats against Detroit pitchers this season and is only hitting .219 overall. FantasyScore owners should be able to find better options.
