White Sox | Jeff Samardzija back in win column

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 17:06:23 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija ended his six-game losing streak by beating the Minnesota Twins Thursday, Sept. 3. It was his first win since July 28, and he had an 8.33 ERA in his last seven starts and had given up nine home runs in that span. Samardzija allowed five hits and four earned runs while walking four and striking out four in 6 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Even though he recorded the victory, Samardzija ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) left a lot to be desired, and he also surrendered another long ball. His 4.85 ERA and 1.29 WHIP on the season isn't pretty, and it looks like he'll continue to be a very shaky starting option for daily gamers in September.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija struggles again

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 23:46:21 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija dropped to 8-11 overall Saturday, Aug. 29, with a 7-6 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Samardzija finished with eight strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. He gave up five runs and eight hits with three walks.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has gone from being highly coveted in the offseason to people wondering just what the heck is a matter with him. He finished August with an 0-6 mark and an ERA above 9.00. He should be avoided at all costs.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija falling apart

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:45:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija has a 12.91 ERA and has allowed 23 hits, 22 earned runs, five home runs and has a 9/6 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 15 1/3 innings in his three starts in August.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) gave up nine hits, six earned runs and three long balls against the hot Chicago Cubs Friday afternoon, continuing his downward spiral this month. Benching him until he settles down is the right thing to do in all fantasy formats.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija unlikely to be traded

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:27:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija continues to receive interest on the trade market, but the White Sox are unlikely to trade him now that they are in playoff contention.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has had his ups and downs with the White Sox this year, posting a 3.94 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in his first season in Chicago. Don't expect his fantasy value to change much at all, even if he is traded away.

Blue Jays | TOR scouting wide variety of pitchers

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:43:44 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are looking at several pitchers in their quest to land a starter, according to baseball sources. Pitchers mentioned include Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija, Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco, Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers, San Diego Padres SP's Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays are trying long and hard to improve their starting pitching, and other pitchers like Mat Latos and Dan Haren are also on this list. The odds of the Blue Jays landing one of these starters might be quite nice, thanks to how wide the net is.

Giants | SF checking in on Jeff Samardzija

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:29:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija is attracting interest from the San Francisco Giants. The Toronto Blue Jays continue to make the biggest push for him, however.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if the White Sox are serious yet about actually trading Samardzija ($6,800, 13.6% of cap), but a trade to the National League and the pitcher-friendly environment of San Fran would definitely be more attractive to his owners than a move to Toronto and the American League East.

Blue Jays | Toronto interested in Jeff Samardzija

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 14:25:33 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija is a player the Toronto Blue Jays are interested in acquiring before the trade deadline. The two sides are in active negotiations about a possible trade.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays have been looking to add a starter, and Samardzija ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) may be one of the better ones available at this time. He has allowed two earned runs or fewer in five of his last seven games and would have run support if he joins the Blue Jays. He is a solid option on FantasyScore against certain matchups.
