Mon, 25 May 2015 17:38:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) missed two games last week and he poses far too big of a risk on FantasyScore right now. Owners will need to wait awhile before employing Garcia in their lineups.
Mon, 25 May 2015 13:37:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) likely will be back in the lineup in the near future. Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has not done a lot at the plate this season and is not the best choice for owners to use on FantasyScore.
Mon, 25 May 2015 13:21:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Flowers ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Soto ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been more productive at the play this month but is still hitting only .192 and is not a great option on FantasyScore.
Sun, 24 May 2015 10:16:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) missed the last two games because of his knee injury but is ready to play. Garcia has at least one hit in 11 of his last 15 games and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore if he is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) was kept out for precautionary reasons, it appears. He may be back in the lineup Sunday, May 24, but keep an eye on his progress and be prepared to hold him out.

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon will not make his scheduled start against the Toronto Blue Jays Monday, May 25, because the team wants to limit the number of innings he throws this season. SP Hector Noesi will start in his place.
Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain when Rodon ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will pitch again but it is expected to be sometime next week. He possesses electric stuff and could be a decent FantasyValue option depending on the matchup, but he has also been plagued by control problems, with 19 walks and 21 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings. You should avoid using Noesi ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) in FantasyScore Monday because of his high WHIP and ERA.

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija won his fourth game of the season against the Minnesota Twins Friday, May 22. He allowed two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out nine batters over eight innings pitched.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to note Samardzija ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has been stronger at home with a 3-0 record, 2.57 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 8.0 K/9, as opposed to his 1-2 record, 5.73 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 6.5 K/9 on the road this season. It is still early, and Samardzija has strung together consecutive eight-inning wins. Expect the split to lessen going forward, but it is clear he is currently a better option when pitching at U.S. Cellular Field.
Fri, 22 May 2015 23:53:03 -0700
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.
Fri, 22 May 2015 15:37:39 -0700
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.
Fri, 22 May 2015 14:23:02 -0700
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.
Fri, 22 May 2015 07:43:33 -0700
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.

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.
Thu, 21 May 2015 14:37:14 -0700
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.
Thu, 21 May 2015 14:22:29 -0700
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.
Thu, 21 May 2015 14:11:28 -0700
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.
