White Sox | Matt Lindstrom, Avisail Garcia close to rehab assignments

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 14:21:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) and OF Avisail Garcia (shoulder) are getting close to going on rehab assignments.

Fantasy Tip: Lindstrom's return is probably much closer, and he should be stashed if you are looking for save chances at this juncture. Garcia could return for the stretch run in September.

White Sox | Matt Lindstrom to throw simulated game Tuesday

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 11:34:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) is expected to throw a simulated game Tuesday, July 29, in Detroit.

Fantasy Tip: This is expected to be the final step before he begins a minor league rehab assignment. Lindstrom is expected to regain closing duties for the White Sox once he is activated from the disabled list. He is worth stashing away on your bench if you can afford the roster spot. For now, RPs Zach Putnam and Jake Petricka are sharing closing duties on the South Side and should be owned in AL-only formats.

White Sox | Matt Lindstrom update

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 14:44:42 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) threw live batting practice Thursday, July 24. He expects to throw a simulated game before going on a rehab assignment. Lindstrom noted he felt good during fielding drills.

Fantasy Tip: Lindstrom is expected to return to the closer's role when he rejoins the team. He should be on your radar in all formats, and he is worth stashing now, if you can sacrifice the bench slot in the meantime.

White Sox | More on Zach Putnam's injury

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 14:15:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) has an issue around the middle of his right (throwing) shoulder, near the joint. He felt it in the last few outings and was hoping rest over the All-Star break would help it heal.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, since he's now on the DL, it hasn't. Jake Petricka is the fantasy pickup as he is in the lead for saves at the moment. However, he may cede those duties if Matt Lindstrom (ankle) proves healthy in the next few weeks.

White Sox | Zach Putnam to DL

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 13:18:21 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list Thursday, July 24, with right shoulder inflammation. In a corresponding move, RP Andre Rienzo was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.

Fantasy Tip: Putnam was getting looks in the ninth inning, so with him out of the committee, Jake Petricka should see more opportunities. Javy Guerra and Daniel Webb could also get an occasional chance. Matt Lindstrom should take over closing duties, when he returns from his ankle injury. However, Perticka is an immediate add, with Guerra and Webb more speculative additions, for those chasing saves.

White Sox | Zach Putnam, Jake Petricka to see ninth-inning work

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 10:33:34 -0700

Chicago White Sox RPs Zach Putnam and Jake Petricka are currently the favorites to work in the ninth inning with a lead, according to manager Robin Ventura.

Fantasy Tip: Both relievers should be picked up from the waiver wire in AL-only leagues if you're desperate for saves. However, they are expected to lose whatever value they have once Matt Lindstrom returns from his ankle injury.
