White Sox | Justin Morneau goes deep

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 21:36:58 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Justin Morneau hit his first home run in over 14 months, going 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in a 7-5 loss to the Detroit Tigers Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: The sample size is still too small to gauge his true value, but Morneau is worth stashing in AL-only formats for now.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie set for MRI exam

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:56:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) will undergo an MRI exam after arriving at the park still nursing a left hamstring injury Friday, July 22, according to manager Robin Ventura.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie has respectable counting stats (35 runs, 12 home runs, 36 RBI and seven stolen bases), but his .248/.310/.413 slash line leaves a little to be desired. It sounds like Lawrie is set to miss some time, so scouting replacements isn't encouraged. Stay tuned for updates.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia in vs. White Sox

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:36:47 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jacob Turner Friday, July 22. C James McCann is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia is 10-for-50 through his past 20 games with nine runs, two home runs and seven RBI. He's a potential flier in daily contests, but like McCann, neither are anything more than low-end options in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues.

White Sox | Dioner Navarro sitting vs. Tigers

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:22:24 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Dioner Navarro is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. C Omar Narvaez is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro has started 13 games in July, but he sits with a disappointing .152/.204/.283 slash line for the month. He's nothing more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues. Narvaez should be faded against Fulmer Friday.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie sitting vs. Tigers

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:12:52 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. INF Tyler Saladino is starting at second base and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie injured his hamstring Thursday, July 21, and he's currently considered day-to-day. He sits with a decent stat line of 35 runs, 12 home runs, 36 RBI and seven stolen bases. However, sitting with a .248/.310/.413 slash line leaves owners wishing for more. Saladino isn't much of a fantasy priority facing Fulmer Friday.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie injures hamstring

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 23:50:30 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is day-to-day following tightness in his left hamstring that forced him to leave the game Thursday, July 21, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Lawrie and whether that injury will force him to miss any time. Tyler Saladino would likely benefit from a Lawrie injury or trip to the disabled list.

White Sox | Adam Eaton has three hits

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 23:31:34 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton had three hits Thursday, July 21, in a 2-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Eaton has three multi-hit games in the past week, but his .277-5-30 line isn't too impressive for power hitting. Still, his 11 stolen bases mean Eaton has speed, and that raises his fantasy value a bit.

White Sox | James Shields tagged with loss

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 23:26:04 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields gave up two runs and seven hits in six innings of work Thursday, July 21, in a 2-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers. Shields fell to 3-12 overall.

Fantasy Tip: Shields has posted five earned runs and eight strikeouts in over 21 innings, but the end result is three straight losses in his last three starts. That's a bit of hard luck. This has not been a great season for Shields, who should be kept sidelined. Shields' fantasy value hasn't climbed to the point yet where players should pick him up.

White Sox | Austin Jackson several weeks away

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 17:40:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson (knee) is still several weeks away from returning.

Fantasy Tip: Although his knee surgery took place more than a month ago, it appears Jackson is still not close to a return. At this point, it seems doubtful that the 29-year-old can make an impact for any fantasy teams the rest of the way. J.B. Shuck will continue to benefit in his absence, but he's not really an ideal option.

White Sox | Alex Avila reinjures hamstring

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 17:21:42 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila (hamstring) aggravated a hamstring strain and he is expected to be out around four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Avila endured a hamstring injury a couple of weeks ago, and while he was supposed to return at the end of July, it looks like that won't be happening now due to this setback. In the meantime, Dioner Navarro will benefit, though he isn't a reliable option. His batting average has been hovering around the Mendoza Line all season.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia remains out

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 13:55:15 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, July 21, in favor of 1B Justin Morneau at designated hitter. Morneau is batting fifth and facing Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia, who continues to frustrate fantasy owners with a .234/.309/.332 slash line and only five home runs, could continue to lose playing time at DH to Morneau, making him only an AL-only candidate at this point. Morneau has just three hits in 13 at-bats for the Pale Hose and is a shell of his former self. He's worth a flier, though, in AL leagues if he sees regular at-bats.

White Sox | Chicago not dealing Chris Sale

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:00:52 -0700

The Chicago White Sox were offered a "king's ransom" for SP Chris Sale in the last 48 hours and flat out said "no," according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Sale is one of the best pitchers in all of baseball this year with his 14-3 record, 3.18 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 8.7 K/9, so it's understandable that he's untouchable. The lanky lefty has reinvented himself this year to take some off his fastball in order to be more efficient and last deeper into games. It's hurt his strikeout totals, but his fantasy owners aren't complaining.

White Sox | Tim Anderson not available

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 10:06:01 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Tim Anderson is not available at the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is the White Sox's shortstop of the future, and he's looked good with a .283 average, five home runs, 11 RBI and three steals in his first taste of the majors in 33 games. However, he must improve his plate patience and take more walks (just two in 145 at-bats) in order to use his speed more and become useful in the majority of seasonal leagues at the 6.

White Sox | Big Game James heating up

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:02:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields is scheduled to start Thursday, July 21, against the Detroit Tigers. He is 2-2 with a 1.91 ERA over his past four outings.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a forgettable season for Shields, and he started off his Chicago career very poorly. However, he is starting to piece it together and he has re-emerged as a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues, deeper mixed formats and DFS play.

White Sox | Todd Frazier cracks 28th homer

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 20:43:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Todd Frazier had a three-run home run in four at-bats Wednesday, July 20, against the Seattle Mariners. He has homered in three straight games while driving in seven runs.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier has bagged 28 homers with 64 RBIs, but he also has a .216 batting average and 91 strikeouts in 343 at-bats. He is basically the 2016 version of Adam Dunn, helping fantasy owners with his power, and hurting his fantasy owners with a poor batting average and plenty of strikeouts.
