White Sox | Jeff Samardzija contract extension talk

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 16:38:09 -0800

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija is unlikely to sign an extension with the White Sox before he gets to test free agency in the offseason, in the opinion of's Jon Heyman.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija is coming off of an excellent season in which he tallied a 2.99 ERA pitching for the Cubs and A's. He's a starting pitcher who teeters on the fringe of being an SP2 and should be drafted in the middle rounds.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon to start Friday

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 18:14:21 -0800

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon will start Friday, March 6, in Cactus League spring action against the San Diego Padres, pitching coach Don Cooper said Sunday, March 1. He will work in the rotation during the spring with SP Chris Sale (foot) out with an avulsion fracture in his right foot.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon has a golden opportunity due to the Sale injury, as he gets extra chances to make the team's rotation. He will be battling Chris Beck, Scott Carroll, Francelis Montas and Brad Penny.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon could get extra look

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 23:53:38 -0800

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon could see more playing time this spring with SP Chris Sale (foot) out.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon, one of the top prospects in Major League Baseball and a top prospect on the White Sox, was already having a good spring. This could put him over the top. Even though Sale may be ready around the start of the year, Rodon could get more seasoning. He's worth stashing away in AL formats or very deep mixed leagues where players can be kept.

White Sox | Chris Sale has fractured right foot

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 10:21:58 -0800

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (foot) will be sidelined for three weeks because of an avulsion fracture in his right foot. Sale suffered the injury during an accident at home Friday, Feb. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Sale will be sidelined through mid-March and his availability for Opening Day is now in question. The White Sox will know more about his status once the swelling in his foot subsides. Despite this setback, Sale is still projected to be selected in the first few rounds of mixed league drafts, although owners are advised to monitor the situation as the regular season draws closer.

White Sox | Chris Sale dealing with injury

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 09:56:49 -0800

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (foot) reported to spring training with a foot injury Saturday, Feb. 28. The team will release some of the details of the injury in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see how severe the injury is and if Sale will miss any time in the regular season. He will have several weeks before opening day to let the injury heal. Sale should be selected in one of the first few rounds of mixed league drafts if he is healthy.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon to be a starter

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 09:43:03 -0800

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon will see innings as a starter this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon is ranked No. 14 on's 2015 top-prospect list. This left-handed hurler has high upside in the White Sox organization, and he may be worth a dart throw in deep mixed leagues if he wins a spot in the rotation to start the season. In AL-only leagues, you should definitely have him on your radar.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon dazzles early in spring

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 18:23:36 -0800

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon threw a batting practice session Tuesday, Feb. 24, and he worked on fastball command and the changeup. C Geovany Soto said Rodon had "electric stuff, and he was impressive by Rodon's changeup which is deemed a work in progress.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Rodon has a chance to break camp with the team and what role he would fill, but fantasy owners need to pay very close attention to him in the spring. If he can somehow crack the Chicago rotation the sky is the limit fantasy-wise.

White Sox | John Danks makes delivery adjustments

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 12:55:11 -0800

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks has lowered his arm angle and his leg kick upon pitch delivery, in an attempt to cut down on the number of home runs he has given up. Danks said the mechanical adjustments, which actually went into effect during the final month of last season, have improved his command and added some sink to his fastball, in addition to resulting in more ground balls being hit.

Fantasy Tip: After making the adjustments, Danks posted a 3.94 ERA and allowed just one home run in 29 2/3 innings over five September starts. Heis worth monitoring and should be considered in the later rounds of drafts for AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija may consider extension

Sun, 01 Feb 2015 10:58:18 -0800

Mark Rodgers, the agent for Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija, said he is willing to listen to contract extension offers for his client. "Obviously they really put in a lot of effort this offseason to make that club better," Rodgers said in an MLB Network Radio interview Sunday, Feb. 1. "And so out of due respect to (chairman) Mr. (Jerry) Reinsdorf and to (general manager) Rick Hahn, who's done a heck of a job, and (executive vice president) Kenny Williams, I told those guys, 'Any time you want to talk, I'll listen. Jeff and I will certainly talk.'"
