White Sox | Dayan Viciedo hot

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 14:05:28 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Dayan Viciedo entered the day Thursday, April 24, hitting an American League-best .354 with a .410 average in his last 10 games. Viciedo's on-base percentage of .403 has been especially impressive. Hitting coach Todd Steverson suggested that too many expectations were likely put on Viciedo when he initially arrived in the big leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Viciedo went 3-for-4 and fell a homer short of the cycle Thursday to stay hot. Improved plate discipline and pitch recognition are helping Viciedo in this hot streak. Remember that he's been a streaky hitter in the past, but consistent playing time and his new approach may help him take the next step.

White Sox | Gordon Beckham to be starter at 2B

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 14:00:30 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham will resume the role of the starting second baseman now that he's back from the disabled list. Beckham hit .267 with five home runs and 24 RBIs in 103 games for the team last year. "You don't lose that spot just because you're hurt," manager Robin Ventura said. "So we expect him to be in there." 2B Marcus Semien will go back to a backup role.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham is back in the starting role, but if he doesn't hit, Semien could at least mix in frequently at the keystone. As long as he's starting every day, Beckham is decent middle infield insurance in cavernous mixed setups.

White Sox | Conor Gillaspie scratched

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:59:14 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie (hand) was scratched from the lineup Thursday, April 24, after testing his sore left hand with early swings in the batting cage. Gillaspie doesn't think he's dealing with anything worse than a bruise, and rest is probably the best prescription for him right now. "This has been going on for a couple of weeks, gradually," Gillaspie said. "It would get jammed every other game or whatever and then for whatever reason the other night it just got jammed a couple of times on foul balls, and from then on it's been pretty tender."

Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie's injury isn't serious enough to land him on the DL, but there's no telling when he'll be back in the lineup. If you own him in an AL-only league, keep checking on his status daily.

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:52:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton (hamstring) missed his fifth straight game Thursday, April 24, with a mild strain in his left knee. Eaton is likely to return to the lineup Friday, April 25. Manager Robin Ventura said Eaton is looking much better.

Fantasy Tip: Check back tomorrow evening before inserting Eaton back into your lineup. If he's starting, he should be starting for your squad, too.

White Sox | More on Adam Eaton's injury

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 09:57:22 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton (hamstring) said he's dealing with more than just a mild strain in the lower part of his left hamstring. "Apparently there's a tendon that is kind of rolling over on the inside back part of my knee. It's been kind of an easier fix," Eaton said. "We're making sure the tendon doesn't move and that equals no pain." He ran some stairs, did lunges and ran on an incline Tuesday, April 22, and everything went well. Eaton declared himself 95 percent healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Eaton could return in a day or two. When he does, return him to your fantasy lineups.

White Sox | Gordon Beckham on track to return this weekend

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 09:18:56 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham (oblique) is on track to return to the team this weekend after rehabbing with Double-A Birmingham.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham will steal valuable playing time from Marcus Semien at the keystone when he returns. That'll make Semien mainly a middle infield depth piece in AL-only leagues.

White Sox | Chris Sale not expecting to miss much time

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 13:16:23 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (elbow) doesn't expect to miss more than two starts.

Fantasy Tip: We'll temper our optimism until we see Sale get back on a mound. The good news is no structural damage was found in his left arm. Stay patient and keep tabs on his recovery process.

White Sox | Dayan Viciedo has more controlled approach

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 09:34:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Dayan Viciedo has been more controlled at the plate and is chasing fewer offspeed pitches on the outer half of the plate. That has helped him get off to a .321 average in 2014, along with the fact that he's driving the ball the other way. He's drawn five walks in 53 at-bats this year, compared to 24 walks in 441 at-bats last season. Viciedo is 10-for-27 with five RBIs in seven games since becoming the everyday right fielder.

Fantasy Tip: Viciedo's poor pitch recognition and lack of plate discipline was the knock on him coming into this year. A more mature approach is the reason for his hot start. With regular playing time, he's a player that could break out, and his raw power plays very well in his home ballpark.

White Sox | Adam Eaton to test injury

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 09:31:18 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton (hamstring) plans to test his strained left hamstring Tuesday, April 22, and he might return to the lineup Wednesday, April 23, if it feels good. Eaton doesn't think he'll need to go on the disabled list. "We'll be very cautious with him because he's kind of a maniac when he runs around, so you have to be careful," manager Robin Ventura said. "I did explain that to him that because of his personality, we can talk about it, but we're not going to go by everything he says, in a good way, not a bad way."

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check on the availability of Eaton, but expect him to be out at least another day or two.
