Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon could see more playing time this spring with SP Chris Sale (foot) out.
Fantasy Tip: Rodon, one of the top prospects in Major League Baseball and a top prospect on the White Sox, was already having a good spring. This could put him over the top. Even though Sale may be ready around the start of the year, Rodon could get more seasoning. He's worth stashing away in AL formats or very deep mixed leagues where players can be kept.

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale (foot) will be sidelined for three weeks because of an avulsion fracture in his right foot. Sale suffered the injury during an accident at home Friday, Feb. 27.
Fantasy Tip: Sale will be sidelined through mid-March and his availability for Opening Day is now in question. The White Sox will know more about his status once the swelling in his foot subsides. Despite this setback, Sale is still projected to be selected in the first few rounds of mixed league drafts, although owners are advised to monitor the situation as the regular season draws closer.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see how severe the injury is and if Sale will miss any time in the regular season. He will have several weeks before opening day to let the injury heal. Sale should be selected in one of the first few rounds of mixed league drafts if he is healthy.

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale allowed one earned run, four hits and no walks with six strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, July 9.
Fantasy Tip: Sale had his win evaporate due to shaky relief from Jake Petricka and Javy Guerra, but it could give him a bump in the final vote for the 2014 All-Star Game. Sale continues to hum along for his fantasy owners with a 2.08 ERA despite uneven results from nearly everyone else in black and white uniforms.
