Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale labored through 5 1/3 innings but minimized the damage created on five hits and four walks by only allowing one run and striking out six in a victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, May 1.
Fantasy Tip: Thankfully for Sale's sake, his "awful" is much better than that of his counterpart on Sunday, Ubaldo Jimenez. Owners have nothing to worry about with the Chicago ace, however, as Sale has permitted no more than one run in any of his last four outings and is finally getting the run support this season that has eluded him in previous years. He's a good bet to notch his seventh win in as many tries when the White Sox host the Minnesota Twins this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie is batting .290 with four home runs and 10 RBI on the season, so he can thank Camden Yards for playing a part in his recent power display. Still, his overall numbers are more than serviceable for a fantasy second baseman, and he now appears to be well on track to surpass last year's career high of 16 homers. He should remain in fantasy lineups when the White Sox begin a series at home against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: SS Jimmy Rollins is out of the lineup for the second consecutive day but he is not believed to be injured. Sanchez should be viewed as nothing more than desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Fantasy Tip: Latos was due to a stinker sooner or later, and this wasn't all that bad. He still has a 1.84 ERA on the season, remaining a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues and most mixed formats.

Fantasy Tip: Jerry Sands drew the start Saturday, but he doesn't move the needle in fantasy.

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia and SS Jimmy Rollins are not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Saturday, April 30. INF Tyler Saladino will bat second and play shortstop, while OF Jerry Sands will bat seventh and serve as the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Saladino is batting .174 with a home run and three RBI in 24 at-bats, while Sands is 5-for-20 with a home run and three RBI. Both players should be viewed as sources of desperation salary cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Fantasy Tip: Danks has allowed five runs or more in all but one of his outings this season and has an earned-run average of 7.25 over 22 1/3 innings. He is not a viable pitching option in any fantasy format due to his high ERA and lack of strikeouts.

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson is expected to return to the team Sunday, May 1. RP Nate Jones will be the primary closer with Robertson unavailable, but RPs Matt Albers and Zach Duke are possibilities, too, according to manager Robin Ventura.
Fantasy Tip: Jones is worth a flier if you're desperate for saves, but otherwise, Jones, Albers and Duke are fantasy afterthoughts in the majority of leagues. It is nice to know that Jones is next in line, though, so saves vultures could potentially hang onto him. Robertson's job is one of the most secure in the majors, though.
Thu, 28 Apr 2016 11:09:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Nate Jones, who has a 0.84 ERA and nine K's in 10 2/3 innings this year, should take over the closing duties with Robertson out. Jones' short-term value sees a huge boost in the ninth-inning role, and those in daily transaction leagues in need of saves should add him immediately.

Fantasy Tip: Quintana has thrown a quality start in all five of his outings this season and has tossed 13 scoreless innings over his last two starts. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Boston Red Sox Tuesday, May 3, and is worth considering for daily fantasy games.
Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:50:06 -0700
Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale allowed just one earned run, four hits and two walks with six strikeouts over eight innings in a win Tuesday, April 26, against the Toronto Blue Jays to run his record to 5-0.
Fantasy Tip: Sale remains a top fantasy pitcher, lasting at least seven innings in each of his five outings, all quality starts. He has recorded at least six strikeouts in four of his five assignments, too.
Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:49:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Eaton is a must-start fantasy option across the board, while Garcia has struggled and is only worth using in deeper AL-only fantasy formats right now. Navarro is worth using in AL-only fantasy and DFS play since he is seeing regular at-bats with Alex Avila on the 15-day disabled list.
Mon, 25 Apr 2016 20:16:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: J-Roll is hitting .268 with the White Sox, and is worth using in most AL-only fantasy leagues and as a salary saver in DFS play.
Mon, 25 Apr 2016 20:16:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez went 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA in two starts for Class AAA Charlotte, but he'll need to do more at the big-league level if he hopes to stick around. Right now he is only worth rostering in AL-only fantasy formats right now.
Mon, 25 Apr 2016 12:25:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Smith will be playing in his first game of the season after recently being recalled from the minor leagues and should be avoided in all leagues for the time being.
