White Sox | Jose Abreu hit streak at 17 games

Fri, 22 May 2015 23:53:03 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu extended his hitting streak to 17 games with a line-drive single Friday, May 22, against the Minnesota Twins.

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.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia scratched Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:37:39 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) was scratched from the lineup with right knee inflammation Friday, May 22.

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.

White Sox | Hector Noesi to start Monday

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:23:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Hector Noesi will start against the Toronto Blue Jays on the road Monday, May 25.

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.

White Sox | Jose Abreu has 16-game hit streak

Fri, 22 May 2015 07:43:33 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu's 16-game hit streak leads the majors. In this time, he has a .323 average, one home run, seven RBI and a pair of doubles.

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.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon not throwing strikes

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:17:35 -0700

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.

Indians | Brandon Moss out vs. White Sox

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:37:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Brandon Moss is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, May 21.

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.

White Sox | Emilio Bonifacio in the lineup

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:22:29 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Emilio Bonifacio is batting ninth and playing second base against the Cleveland Indians Thursday, May 21.

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.

White Sox | Conor Gillaspie out vs. Cleveland

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:11:28 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie is not in the starting lineup against the Cleveland Indians Thursday, May 21. 2B Gordon Beckham is starting at third base and batting seventh.

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.

White Sox | Gordon Beckham starting at third

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:06:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham is starting at third base and hitting seventh against the Cleveland Indians Thursday, May 21.

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.

White Sox | Control problems for Carlos Rodon

Thu, 21 May 2015 00:42:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon has 15 walks in 16 innings this season, including five walks Wednesday, May 20, against the Cleveland Indians.

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.

White Sox | Jose Abreu on hit streak

Tue, 19 May 2015 04:36:17 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu extended his hitting streak to 13 games Monday, May 18, against the Cleveland Indians.

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.

White Sox | Chris Sale pitches well vs. CLE

Mon, 18 May 2015 20:56:24 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale allowed one run on four hits in eight innings against the Cleveland Indians Monday, May 18. He struck out seven batters and walked two during the game.

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.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia injury update

Mon, 18 May 2015 20:08:47 -0700

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.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia left game

Mon, 18 May 2015 19:40:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (undisclosed) left the game Monday, May 18, against the Cleveland Indians. Garcia left after taking a leadoff walk in the 10th-inning.

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.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche not starting

Sun, 17 May 2015 10:38:12 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17. 2B Emilio Bonifacio will serve as the designated hitter for the White Sox.

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.
