Fantasy Tip: Without being able to utilize a designated hitter Wednesday, Morneau lands on the bench. He's 7-for-30 with a .367 slugging percentage through 10 games this season and likely should be left to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues at this point.

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring Wednesday, July 27. In a corresponding move, INF Carlos Sanchez was recalled from the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Lawrie hasn't played since injuring his left hamstring Thursday, July 21. He can be replaced in mixed leagues given his underwhelming .248/.310/.413 slash line, but he's likely worth stashing in cavernous mixed and AL-only settings. Tyler Saladino projects to continue seeing regular duty at the keystone, but he's not a viable option in the majority of formats.

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields is on the trading block, according to sources. The White Sox are on the hook for $22 million of his salary next season, which significantly lessens the financial commitment of suitors, and Shields has posted a 1.71 ERA over his past six starts.
Fantasy Tip: Shields passed the eye test against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, July 26, and he's clearly in a groove. He's a player to watch over the coming weeks because relocating to a contender with a more pitcher-friendly park would be another boon to his fantasy value. For now, continue to start Shields with confidence.

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon (wrist) pitched 3 2/3 innings for Class AAA Charlotte on Tuesday, July 26, and indicated after the game that he expects to start against the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday, Aug. 3.
Fantasy Tip: Rodon has been up and down all season, but he has unequivocally been better than his 2-7 record indicates. His high strikeouts and decent ERA make him a stash option in AL-only leagues.
Tue, 26 Jul 2016 19:47:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Avoid Lawrie in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in back-to-back games without any setbacks.

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Tuesday, July 26. SS Tyler Saladino will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Lawrie will need to be placed on the disabled list. Saladino is hitting .389 with one RBI over the last seven days and should be a starting candidate in AL-only leagues.

Chicago White Sox SS Tyler Saladino hit a game-winning single for a 5-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday, July 25. Saladino helped the White Sox win their third straight game in the last at-bat, the first time they have done that since August 1962.
Fantasy Tip: Right now Saladino is a decent bet in DFS leagues, because he is still in a platoon with Brett Lawrie in the middle infield. Saladino does well in games where he plays, so fantasy owners may want to watch for those matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Sale facing a tough opponent following a somewhat peculiar incident that resulted in a suspension, he owns a 4.87 ERA through his past 10 outings. There are some concerns, but given his track record as a fantasy ace, you will likely want to start him in all settings.
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 19:26:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The bullpen cost Quintana a win, but he has been sharp in his two starts since the All-Star break and should be starting in all formats.
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 19:21:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Robertson has endured a few awful outings recently, but he has been good enough as the closer to retain the job for the foreseeable future.
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 16:30:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rodon continues to post solid strikeout numbers, but he struggles with consistency. Stash him in AL-only leagues and in deeper mixed formats if you need to bump up your strikeout totals.
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 11:52:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez was recalled for the game and will not be a strong fantasy option moving forward.
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 10:30:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sale likely will start for the White Sox after his suspension is over, so owners should look to see when he will pitch again. He is one of the better starting pitchers in baseball and should be used in all fantasy leagues.

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24. INF Tyler Saladino is starting at second base and batting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Lawrie is missing his third consecutive game Sunday, but he's not expected to require a stint on the disabled list. Saladino is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests and a depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Stay tuned for updates on Lawrie's status.
Sat, 23 Jul 2016 23:53:31 -0700
Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) missed his second straight game Saturday, July 23, against the Detroit Tigers due to a hamstring injury. However, he is not expected to land on the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Avoid Lawrie in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.
