White Sox | Avisail Garcia sits out both games

Thu, 28 May 2015 15:32:54 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) sat out both games of the doubleheader Thursday, May 28, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore until he achieves full health. J.B. Shuck ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) continues starting in right field, but he's purely a GPP option.

White Sox | Jake Petricka gets first save

Thu, 28 May 2015 15:11:52 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Jake Petricka picked up his first save of the season in the first game of the doubleheader Thursday, May 28, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Petricka was given the save opportunity while David Robertson was allowed to rest after blowing back-to-back saves against Josh Donaldson and the Toronto Blue Jays. Robertson should be considered safe in the closer's role for the time being. Owners don't need to rush out and pick up Petricka.

White Sox | Chris Sale fans a dozen

Thu, 28 May 2015 14:29:36 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings with 12 strikeouts and just four hits allowed during the White Sox's 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) now has 40 strikeouts over 31 2/3 innings through his last four starts. Aside from a pair of rough outings which have ballooned his ERA (now at 3.66), Sale has been his usual dominate self. FantasyScore players are currently receiving a slight discount on the top-tier starter, too.

White Sox | Conor Gillaspie in for Game 2

Thu, 28 May 2015 13:39:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie is starting at third base and batting sixth in Game 2 against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is off to a horrible start to the season with just seven runs, two home runs, 10 RBI and a .248/.287/.396 slash line over 108 plate appearances. He holds value in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, but even in those deep formats, Gillaspie is a low-end option. FantasyScore players should view him as a desperation source of cap relief.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia sitting

Thu, 28 May 2015 07:49:45 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 28, against the Baltimore Orioles in Game 1 of their doubleheader. OF J.B. Shuck is starting in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) shouldn't be considered as anything more than a cap-saving play with today's small slate of games.

White Sox | Chris Beck to start Thursday

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:53:22 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Beck will come up from Class AAA Charlotte to start the second game of a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, May 28. He is 3-2 with a 3.30 ERA in eight starts in the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Since it'll be the second game of the doubleheader, Beck won't be available at FantasyScore tomorrow.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija solid again

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:45:23 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija allowed just one unearned run and eight hits in seven innings in a no-decision against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, May 27. He walked one and struck out five while throwing 78 of his 114 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has allowed just five earned runs in his last 23 innings pitched, after struggling to open the season with his new squad. He's not allowing many home runs at home, either, which is a positive development. He could continue to be overlooked at FantasyScore, and in the right matchups, he's a fine daily option.

White Sox | David Robertson blows another

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:21:35 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson blew his second save in consecutive days against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, May 27, but this time recorded the win. He once again allowed a home run to Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson and gave up two hits and an earned run while walking one and striking out two in two innings. His ERA is now up to 2.61 on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Despite back-to-back blown saves, Robertson remains firmly entrenched as the club's closer. However, if things continue to snowball for Robertson, Zach Putnam may be worth a look for saves speculators. Expect Robertson to be rested tomorrow after pitching two-plus innings the last two days.

White Sox | Conor Gillaspie sitting

Wed, 27 May 2015 09:32:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 27. 2B Gordon Beckham is starting at the hot corner and hitting seventh in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is seeing more and more starts at third base in place of Gillaspie lately. He doesn't have a ton of offensive upside, though, although he could pay off as a deep sleeper today against Estrada, who has really struggled in his transition from the bullpen to the starting rotation.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia expected out again

Wed, 27 May 2015 05:55:35 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) is expected to miss the series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, May 27. Garcia left the game in the second inning Monday, May 25, and did not play Tuesday, May 26, either. Manager Robin Ventura said it would be highly unlikely Garcia will play before Chicago's doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: J.B. Shuck ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been filling in for Garcia ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), and Shuck is a viable low-priced flier for FantasyScore players, however, cap relief might be his best asset and expectations should be kept in check. Shuck has just 45 plate appearances this season, after all.

White Sox | Jose Abreu goes deep vs. TOR

Tue, 26 May 2015 21:50:47 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu went 1-for-5 with one home run and four RBI against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has posted solid numbers so far this season and has at least one hit in 19 of his last 21 games. Abreu could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore most nights.

White Sox | Gordon Beckham starting at third

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:19:01 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham will get the start at third base Tuesday, May 26, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Beckham will be hitting seventh in the order. 3B Conor Gillaspie is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has not had a multi-hit game since May 13, when he also hit his lone home run of the season. FantasyScore owners can do better, even at the thin second base position.

White Sox | J.B. Shuck starting in RF

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:14:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF J.B. Shuck will start in right field and bat fifth in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a cheap play with plenty of upside as he goes up against the knuckle ball-throwing R.A. Dickey of the Blue Jays. Shuck could be in line for several starts with Avisail Garcia listed as day-to-day, and FantasyScore owners can use Shuck in GPP tournaments.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia remains out

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:47:13 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 26, and he'll likely be out again Wednesday, May 27. However, manager Robin Ventura doesn't think the injury will require Garcia to go on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: With Garcia hurting, J.B. Shuck ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) continues to see starts in the outfield. He's merely a deep sleeper option at FantasyScore, but he'll save you plenty of valuable loot to fill out the rest of your lineup.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon to start Friday

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:32:46 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon is penciled in to start again Friday, May 29, against the Houston Astros, according to manager Robin Ventura.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) had his last start skipped in order to preserve his innings for the long run. Against the Astros, who rank second in all of baseball with 427 strikeouts, Rodon will be a risk/reward option at FantasyScore. He'll be attractive because of his high-strikeout upside.
