White Sox | Zach Putnam activated, Andre Rienzo sent down

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 09:03:05 -0700

The Chicago White Sox activated RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, Aug. 8, and optioned RP Andre Rienzo in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Jake Petricka has been holding down the ninth-inning save duties with Putnam on the DL. Putnam could threaten Petricka for save chances eventually, so if you're searching for saves avenues, Putnam is worth a look in deeper leagues.

White Sox | Zach Putnam to return Friday

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 13:05:57 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: The White Sox's closer situation is very much up in the air, especially with Matt Lindstrom (ankle) expected to return soon, as well. Jake Petricka has been doing the job with Putnam out, but this could go back to a committee approach, too. If you're in need of saves, look to acquire Putnam in hopes that he'll see some chances.

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 | 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.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 05:27:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Jake Petricka recorded his fourth save Monday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: It was his first save in two weeks as the team has used a true committee with him and Zach Putnam. Petricka and Putnam should be owned in AL-only leagues and some mixed leagues.

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.

White Sox | Matt Lindstrom to throw bullpen

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 14:18:47 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session consisting of around 25 to 35 pitches Saturday, July 12, and he's expected to use all of his offerings.

Fantasy Tip: The White Sox have been laboring through the ninth inning in a committee approach headed by Zach Putnam. If you are in the market for saves at midseason, pick up and stash Lindstrom now. He could easily take over the ninth-inning duties by himself if he's completely healthy in a few weeks.
