White Sox | Jeff Samardzija to face Detroit

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 21:32:36 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija is expected to start against the Detroit Tigers Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is off to a slow start, and he brings a 6.23 ERA into a tough matchup with a Tigers offense that ranks in the top three in runs scored, batting average and slugging percentage. It is best to avoid Samardzija at FantasyScore.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija starting Saturday

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 04:57:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija will start Saturday, April 11, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) did not look good in the season opener against the Kansas City Royals, but he beat the Twins the only time he faced them last season. With Minnesota's offense sputtering, this is worth the price.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija tabbed for opener

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 15:46:08 -0700

As expected, Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija will be the opening day starter.

Fantasy Tip: With Chris Sale injured, Samardzija ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) was the obvious candidate for the opening day start for the Pale Hose. Even at a hefty FantasyScore salary, Samardzija is a strong option for daily lineups against a Kansas City Royals team that struggled to score runs in 2014.

White Sox | Chris Sale won't make OD

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 16:04:03 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (foot) will not take the mound on opening day, as the team looks to play it safe with him after he fractured a bone in his right foot at the start of spring training. Sale was supposed to be out of action for three weeks after suffering the injury unloading his truck Feb. 27, and he could return to on-field activities around March 21. SPs Jeff Samardzija or Jose Quintana could take the ball in the season opener April 6 against the Kansas City Royals. The White Sox are looking at April 12 as Sale's potential season debut.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Sale's spring injury, he remains in fantasy ace territory, and he'll basically be missing just one start, unless he suffers a setback when he returns to action in spring training. You could see Sale's price drop a tad in upcoming drafts. If that's the case, make sure to pounce on his newfound value.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija contract extension talk

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 16:38:09 -0800

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija is unlikely to sign an extension with the White Sox before he gets to test free agency in the offseason, in the opinion of CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija is coming off of an excellent season in which he tallied a 2.99 ERA pitching for the Cubs and A's. He's a starting pitcher who teeters on the fringe of being an SP2 and should be drafted in the middle rounds.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija may consider extension

Sun, 01 Feb 2015 10:58:18 -0800

Mark Rodgers, the agent for Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija, said he is willing to listen to contract extension offers for his client. "Obviously they really put in a lot of effort this offseason to make that club better," Rodgers said in an MLB Network Radio interview Sunday, Feb. 1. "And so out of due respect to (chairman) Mr. (Jerry) Reinsdorf and to (general manager) Rick Hahn, who's done a heck of a job, and (executive vice president) Kenny Williams, I told those guys, 'Any time you want to talk, I'll listen. Jeff and I will certainly talk.'"
