White Sox | Avisail Garcia to return Wednesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:29:12 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (hamstring) said he'll be ready to return to the starting lineup Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: While Garcia does have three home runs and nine RBI, he's hitting just .214 and continues to frustrate his fantasy owners despite plenty of potential. Coming off the injury, you'll probably want to keep him benched where he's owned in order for him to prove his health.

White Sox | Jose Quintana likes facing Boston

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:12:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana has tossed 16 straight scoreless innings and Boston Red Sox hitters are batting only 15-for-69 (.217) against him with no home runs or walks. Quintana is 2-0 with a 2.14 ERA in five career starts against Boston. He faces the Red Sox Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Quintana is certainly off to a masterful start (3-1, 1.47 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 9.4 K/9), but the Red Sox have been one of the better offenses in the American League and could pose a threat to his scoreless streak right off the bat. Most people aren't benching Quintana in traditional leagues right now, but it would be wise to avoid paying up for him in daily setups.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia remains sidelined

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:51:40 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. OF Jerry Sands is the designated hitter and is batting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Garcia hurt now, but he's hitting only .214 (15-for-70) after the first month. His ownership should be limited to deep mixed and AL-only leagues, and you'll have to keep him benched for now. Sands is more of a dice roll as a deep sleeper in daily games for his power stroke.

White Sox | Erik Johnson to start Thursday

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:24:10 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Erik Johnson will make the start against the Boston Red Sox Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: A former top pitching prospect, Johnson has shaky skills as a starter and had a fortunate 3.34 ERA in six starts for the Pale Hose last season. He also walked 4.4 hitters per nine and can be hurt by his spotty control. This could just be a spot start, too, and the matchup is not forgiving. Pass on Johnson now unless you're desperate in AL-only leagues for an arm.

White Sox | John Danks designated for assignment

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:15:05 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks was designated for assignment Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Danks had a miserable start with a 7.25 ERA and only 16 strikeouts and 11 walks in 22 1/3 innings in his four starts. He can be sent to the waiver wire if he was still owned in deeper leagues. Erik Johnson is expected to take his place in the rotation at least for a spot start, but he's only AL material if he sticks.

White Sox | Chris Sale first to six wins

Sun, 01 May 2016 15:16:47 -0700

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.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie on a roll

Sun, 01 May 2016 14:20:44 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie continued to haunt the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, May 01, going 3-for-3 while homering for the third straight game.

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.

White Sox | Carlos Sanchez playing shortstop

Sun, 01 May 2016 08:50:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox INF Carlos Sanchez will bat second and start at shortstop against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Sunday, May 1.

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.

White Sox | Mat Latos hit hard in no-decision

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 22:21:01 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos allowed four runs and a career-high 11 hits over five innings in a no-decision Saturday, April 30, against the Baltimore Orioles.

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.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia out a few days

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 14:37:27 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is out until at least Tuesday, May 3, with a hamstring injury.

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

White Sox | Avisail Garcia, Jimmy Rollins out

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 12:42:37 -0700

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.

White Sox | John Danks remains winless

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:48:20 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks (0-4) allowed six runs on nine hits over five innings in a loss to the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, April 28, with two walks and four strikeouts.

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.

White Sox | David Robertson expected back Sunday

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:52:12 -0700

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.

White Sox | David Robertson out at least three days

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 11:09:38 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson will be out for at least three days while on the bereavement list. 2B Carlos Sanchez will be recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

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.

White Sox | Jose Quintana strikes out 10 Wednesday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 19:47:34 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana (3-1) allowed four hits and three walks over six scoreless innings in a victory over the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, April 27, with a season-high 10 strikeouts.

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.
