The Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Los Angeles Dodgers, Minnesota Twins, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals and Toronto Blue Jays are interested in Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.
Fantasy Tip: Entering play Sunday, June 28, Samardzija ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) had posted a 5.94 ERA through six June starts, which hasn't exactly helped his trade value. Avoid using him in FantasyScore until he starts producing better results.

Chicago White Sox 2B Carlos Sanchez is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP David Price Sunday, June 28. 2B Emilio Bonifacio will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) likely is receiving the day off Sunday. Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has only one hit in 17 at-bats this month and should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Flowers ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should return to the lineup for the next game and probably is receiving a day off. Soto ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has three hits and two RBI in his last three games but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is only hitting .162 this season and is 1-for-17 during the month of June. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has just one hit in 19 at-bats against Detroit pitchers this season and is only hitting .219 overall. FantasyScore owners should be able to find better options.

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu is batting second against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan Saturday, June 27. It marks the first time in Abreu's major league career that he is hitting in the No. 2 spot. OF Avisail Garcia will bat in the No. 3 spot, followed by DH Adam LaRoche, OF Melky Cabrera and SS Alexei Ramirez.
Fantasy Tip: The White Sox have scored 19 runs in their last four games, so it's uncertain what brought upon this lineup shakeup. Abreu ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is 2-for-5 in his career against Ryan and is batting .323 over the last week.
Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:11:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is hitting only .222 (59-for-266) with two home runs and 26 RBI on the season, and has been even worse in June (.212-0-5). Perhaps a move up in the order can spark him, but you shouldn't be willing to find out with him in your FantasyScore lineup against an improving Sanchez.

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson allowed two runs en route to his 15th save in 19 chances over the Detroit Tigers Thursday, June 25. He allowed three hits and walked two while striking out two in an inning of work to increase his ERA on the season to 2.84.
Fantasy Tip: It hasn't been pretty for Robertson as the closer of his new team in 2015, but the important thing to note is he has a long leash as the team's stopper, and there really isn't a clear alternative. If you're speculating in the deepest of leagues, Zach Putnam would probably be next in line if Robertson spirals out of control.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is next up in the revolving door that is the two-hole. His .227-4-16 line doesn't give much reason to use him on FantasyScore.

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (6-4) allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, June 24, with one walk and 10 strikeouts. Sale recorded double-digit strikeouts for the seventh consecutive start, a feat which was last accomplished by Randy Johnson in 2001.
Fantasy Tip: Sale ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) is 1-3 with a 6.46 ERA against Minnesota in four starts this season but he is 5-1 with a 1.88 ERA in 10 starts against everyone else. He is expected to make his next start against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) gains some daily value with a bump up in the batting order today. The matchup against Hughes isn't a bad one, either, but Gillaspie still shouldn't excite FantasyScore users all that much. He has a limited power ceiling and struggles to fill out the stat sheet more often than not.
Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:59:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is hitting just .149 in June and probably should be avoided on FantasyScore.
Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:55:25 -0700
Chicago White Sox SS Alexei Ramirez has hit just .170 over his past 14 games, but manager Robin Ventura said he does not see any fatigue. "There are times when you do give him that day, and I don't think this is that time," Ventura said Tuesday, June 23.
Fantasy Tip: Ventura might be sticking with Ramirez ($3,400; or 6.8% of cap), but FantasyScore players should avoid him until he starts to show more consistency.
Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:54:56 -0700
Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija allowed two earned runs, eight hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a win against the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, June 23. He settled down after allowing a first-inning run. He leads the majors with 19 first-inning runs allowed.
Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($5,500; or 11.0% of cap) has allowed a major-league worst 118 hits this season, but he can still be a valuable contributor in FantasyScore when the matchup is favorable.
Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:43:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Abreu ($5,800; or 11.6% of cap) has three straight multi-hit games, and four over his past five games, to help FantasyScore players.
