Chicago White Sox 2B Jeff Keppinger (shoulder) was able to make his Cactus League debut Tuesday, March 4, grounding out in his only at-bat in a pinch-hitting appearance. "Gotta slowly get him in there and get some at-bats. I know Thursday he's probably scheduled to DH one of those (split-squad) games," Keppinger said.
Fantasy Tip: Keppinger is not yet able to throw, so the team is bringing him along slowly. He is worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues at this point of his career, but mixed leaguers won't want to bother with him.

Chicago White Sox 3B Matt Davidson could open the season in the big leagues, according to general manager Rick Hahn. Currently, he is listed behind veteran INFs Jeff Keppinger and Conor Gillaspie, but Hahn is not ruling him out. "It certainly is possible he breaks with us opening day, but if that's not the case we'll see a lot of him this season once we feel he is truly ready," Hahn said in a television interview. "There's still a few areas he's going to improve in and we need to see some refinement."

Chicago White Sox 3B Matt Davidson will be squarely in the mix to win the starting third base job this spring. "We still have guys who can play there, but it's a competition, definitely," said manager Robin Ventura. "He has every reason to go in there and try to win the job." 3Bs Conor Gillaspie and Jeff Keppinger are in the mix for competition at the hot corner.

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham (wrist) is not in the lineup again Monday, July 22, and he's unsure if he can avoid the disabled list. He will rest for at least the next two days.
Fantasy Tip: If Beckham goes back on the DL, Jeff Keppinger can slide over to second base and Conor Gillaspie can play the hot corner. Aside from his injuries this year, Beckham has made some nice adjustments at the plate. He's worth stashing if he goes back on the DL in deep mixed leagues.

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham (quad) suffered a left quad contusion after colliding with OF Casper Wells during the 12th inning of the second game of a doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, July 13. He remained in the game for the rest of the inning but was replaced on defense in the 13th inning by C Josh Phegley. Beckham was not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 14, with INF Jeff Keppinger playing second base.

The Chicago White Sox have placed 1B Paul Konerko (back) on the 15-day disabled list because of a lower back strain. The team has also placed RP Jesse Crain (shoulder) on the 15-day DL because of a right shoulder strain. The move is retroactive to June 30.
Fantasy Tip: Konerko has been dealing with his back injury for the last week or so and will sit out to allow it to heal. Jeff Keppinger could see most of the time at first base while Konerko is out with Conor Gillaspie and Brent Morel splitting time at third base. Both Gillaspie and Morel could have value in AL-only leagues.
