White Sox | Jose Abreu sitting vs. Blue Jays

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 14:12:39 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. SS Tyler Saladino draws into the lineup at third base and is batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Sub out Abreu where you can in seasonal leagues. He is having a huge June with five home runs, 20 RBI and a .333/.382/.615 slash line and should be viewed as a slam-dunk starter in all settings. Saladino is nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups, as his playing time has plummeted with the promotion of Tim Anderson.

White Sox | James Shields finally decent

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 18:32:19 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields had his first decent outing with his new team Thursday, June 23, opposite the Boston Red Sox. The veteran righty was able to last five innings, yielding three runs on five hits and four walks. He also racked up three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Normally, this might not be classified as "decent" but given Shields' significant struggles since joining the White Sox, this has to be seen as a big-time positive development for the 34-year-old. After all, Shields had given up a whopping 31 earned runs over his first four starts in Chicago before today's encouraging outing versus one of the best offenses in baseball. It's still hard to trust him right now, but at least he's headed back in the right direction.

White Sox | Jose Abreu homers, drives in three

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 18:31:31 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with his 11th home run of the season Thursday, June 23, against the Boston Red Sox. The homer produced his lone run scored and three RBI for the ballgame.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu clocked at least 30 homers in each of his prior two years in the big leagues, and although he is on pace to fall short of that in 2016, the 29-year-old is still one of the better first basemen to own in all of fantasy baseball. At least he's on pace to top 100 RBI for the third straight campaign.

White Sox | Todd Frazier homers in consecutive games

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:27:05 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Todd Frazier went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, June 22. It was Frazier's 21st of the season, which puts him a three-way tie for most in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: After going 11 games without a home run, Frazier found the cheap seats for the second straight day to draw even with Mark Trumbo and Nolan Arenado atop the leader board. While Frazier's power is unquestioned, his woeful average means fantasy owners are paying a price for those taters. Unless you have power to spare, however, you're better off leaving him active and hoping his average comes around.

White Sox | Melky Cabrera enjoys big night

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:19:28 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a double, a home run and four RBI against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has been his usual solid self in 2016, posting a .317-3-13 line in June and .291-7-37 for the year. He's quality depth in standard leagues and an everyday option in deeper mixed and AL-only setups.

White Sox | Zach Duke picks up save

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:12:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Duke struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, June 22, to record his first save of 2016.

Fantasy Tip: With David Robertson having pitched three days in a row, the team had Duke step in and close out the game. The veteran southpaw got the job done, but clearly Robertson has the ninth inning locked down when he's available.

White Sox | Jose Quintana gets rocked

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 21:53:40 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana gave up six runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, June 22. He walked a season-high six and struck out a season-low one.

Fantasy Tip: Quintana was just bad on Wednesday. His six walks matched his total for May, and his one K was three fewer than in any other outing this year. It was his second rough start in June, and it pushed his ERA above 3.00 for the first time since April 11. Quintana will look to rebound against the Twins on June 28. Make sure he's in your active lineup for that one.

White Sox | Alex Avila, J.B. Shuck out

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:16:51 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila and OF J.B. Shuck are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Wednesday, June 22. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting seventh. OF Adam Eaton will start in center field, while OF Jason Coats will start in right field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro has only three hits in his last eight games and is hitting .115 this month. Coats has gone hitless since joining the team a few weeks ago. Neither player should be a starting candidate in fantasy leagues.

White Sox | Todd Frazier ends 11-game homer drought

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 19:49:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Todd Frazier became the fourth major-leaguer to reach 20 homers Tuesday, June 21, with a solo shot off Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier lifted his average to .136 for the month and .200 for the season with his 1-for-3 effort, which pretty much encapsulates how all-or-nothing he has been this year at the plate. The two-time All-Star batted .257 during his six-year career with the Cincinnati Reds, so maybe he's taking longer to adjust to American League pitching than most expected. His power numbers (20 homers, 45 RBI) are why owners drafted him, so keep rolling with him and hope it gets better soon.

White Sox | Chris Sale first to 12 wins

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 19:48:39 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale registered his best effort in over a month en route to his third victory in as many starts Tuesday, June 21, allowing one run on four hits and a walk while striking out nine in seven frames against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Mookie Betts' third-inning sacrifice fly was all the Red Sox could muster off Sale, who was 2-2 with a 6.07 ERA over his previous five outings after beginning the season with nine straight victories and a 1.58 ERA. The four-time All-Star's dominant outing gave him a 6-1 record and 1.99 ERA in eight road turns as well. Nevertheless, Sale is a recommended start at home Sunday when he faces the Toronto Blue Jays.

White Sox | Alex Avila receives day off

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 13:30:32 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Tuesday, June 21. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro has been on a cold streak over the last few weeks and has only one hit in his last 23 at-bats. He probably should be avoided in all daily fantasy leagues.

White Sox | Zack Collins signs contract

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 10:24:26 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Zack Collins signed for full value of his No. 10 overall selection, which was slotted at $3,380,600, Tuesday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: Collins is a project defensively that may not ultimately stay at the position. He's an interesting piece to take in a dynasty league, but it could be a couple of years before he surfaces in fantasy.

White Sox | Miguel Gonzalez likes Fenway Park

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 20:56:19 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez allowed one earned run, four hits and two walks over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision Monday, June 20, against the Boston Red Sox. He entered 6-1 with a 3.27 ERA against the Red Sox, and 4-0 in five starts at Fenway Park.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has been up and down in the rotation for the White Sox, and he can only be trusted in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues.

White Sox | J.B. Shuck on the bench

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 12:46:52 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF J.B. Shuck is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Monday, June 20. OF Adam Eaton will start in center field, while OF Jason Coats will start in right field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Coats has gone hitless in his 11 at-bats since joining the team and should be avoided in all leagues.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon unlucky yet again

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 15:13:53 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon held the opposition to two earned runs or fewer for the fifth time in six trips to the mound on Sunday, June 19, but he was unable to come away with a decision against the Cleveland Indians after allowing two runs on eight hits to go along with a season-high eight strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon and Jose Quintana could both sue their offense for lack of support during the White Sox's seemingly endless tailspin. While Rodon hasn't exactly been dominant in any of his outings since the middle of May, he deserves something better than a 1-2 record over that stretch since he has consistently minimized the damage. The 23-year-old's next scheduled start comes on Friday at home against the Toronto Blue Jays, which may one for most of his owners to avoid.
