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.

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera went 5-for-5 with a double and a run scored in a 3-2 win over the Texas Rangers Sunday, June 21.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has struggled at the plate this year, and even after the five-hit performance, his average stands at just .250. He will need to string together a few solid games before he is worth considering at FantasyScore.

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera is batting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Wednesday, June 17.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is having a career-worst season with a .241/.278/.277 slash line and just seven extra-base hits over 267 plate appearances. At this point, there is no reason to target him in FantasyScore contests, and you should be able to find superior options in his price range.

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera has been dropped to sixth in the batting order Tuesday, June 9, against the Houston Astros. SS Alexei Ramirez will move into the two-spot against LHP Dallas Keuchel.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is hitting .265 against lefties this season, and his speed can be a major asset at the top of the lineup. FantasyScore owners can consider Ramirez for their GPP lineups.

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera is hitting just .197 over his last 27 games and has gone eight games without an RBI.
Fantasy Tip: Even at a lower price tag, Cabrera ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is just dead weight on rosters at FantasyScore right now.

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera is not in the starting lineup Saturday, June 6, against the Detroit Tigers. 2B Emilio Bonifacio will start in left field and bat ninth against LHP David Price.
Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting just .192 on the season, and he doesn't even have a stolen base. Bonifacio should be completely ignored on FantasyScore.

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera is hitting sixth in the batting order against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan Friday, June 5.
