Chicago White Sox OF Alejandro De Aza is batting just .173 with four home runs and 17 RBIs this year, and he's also had several miscues on defense and running the bases. "He kind of went through a rut. Had a great opening day and since then hit a rut. Lately, he's been hitting it pretty hard, he's been hitting into some tough luck. Tough luck happens to everybody and you have to be able to fight your way through it and he's going to have to be able to do that, even with going against the lefties we have," manager Robin Ventura said.

Chicago White Sox OF Alex Rios is expected to hit third this season. DH Adam Dunn hit third last season, but he has always been distracted by movement on the bases when he hits. So, he'll likely hit fifth, since OF Alejandro De Aza will hit leadoff and look to steal bases.
Fantasy Tip: We don't think this move affects Dunn much. It might hurt his RBI potential a bit with slow-footed Paul Konerko hitting ahead of him, as opposed to 1-2 hitters. But Dunn isn't typically a guy that drives in a ton of runs due to his low batting averages. If Rios can handle the three-hole, it should boost his value a bit.
