White Sox | Jose Abreu not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 12:04:40 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B/DH Jose Abreu is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris Sunday, Oct. 4. INF Mike Olt will bat sixth and play first base.

Fantasy Tip: Olt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has primarily served as the team's third baseman over the last few weeks but moves across the diamond to play first in the regular-season finale. Since Sept. 1, he is batting just .211 with three home runs, four RBIs and 29 strikeouts in 76 at-bats. Avoid using him in FantasyScore.

White Sox | Mike Olt day-to-day

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 19:18:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox 3B Mike Olt (shoulder) is officially listed as day-to-day because of discomfort in his right shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Saladino ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) could see most of the action at the hot corner for Chicago while Olt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is sidelined. Neither player makes an ideal FantasyScore option.

White Sox | Mike Olt injured

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 12:02:42 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Mike Olt (shoulder) left the game early with right shoulder pain Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on the severity of this injury, Olt ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could be in jeopardy of missing the rest of the regular season. He's a deep sleeper on FantasyScore but can be intriguing against certain left-handers because of his power stroke.

White Sox | Mike Olt not starting Tuesday

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 12:11:27 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Mike Olt is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 22, against the Detroit Tigers. 3B Tyler Saladino is batting ninth against Tigers SP Daniel Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Olt ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .204 in September and only .200 against lefty pitching. Saladino ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) isn't much better with a .216 average against the left, but he has some success with extra-base hits so he may be worth a low-cost flier.

White Sox | Still no Adam LaRoche for Chicago

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 14:11:54 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche (knee) remains out of the lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers Monday, Sept. 21. 3B Mike Olt is starting at first base and batting sixth against Tigers SP Randy Wolf.

Fantasy Tip: Olt ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has serious power but has struck out 19 times in 54 plate appearances for the Pale Hose. However, against the soft-tossing Wolf tonight, a home run could be in the cards if you are feeling bold. Olt will save you valuable cap space, too.

White Sox | Jose Abreu receiving a breather

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 09:30:00 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 17. 3B Mike Olt is starting at first base and is batting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Nolin.

Fantasy Tip: Olt ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has more than enough power to spare, but he has struggled making contact in the major leagues and is nothing more than a deep sleeper dice roll on FantasyScore.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche still sidelined

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 09:21:06 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche (knee) remains out of the lineup Thursday, Sept. 17. C Geovany Soto is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth, while 3B Mike Olt receives the start at first base and is hitting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Nolin.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) mainly is a source of cap relief at the catching position, but he does have some power with nine home runs this year and is facing a weak pitcher. Olt ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has plenty of power to spare but has struggled to make contact at the major league level. He's a deep sleeper pick.

White Sox | Mike Olt to see plenty of playing time

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 18:19:28 -0700

Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura said 3B Mike Olt will receive the bulk of the playing time at the hot corner for the remainder of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Once considered one of the top infield prospects in baseball, Olt ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) will receive an extended look at the position over the next few weeks because the White Sox lack a definitive answer at third base. He is 2-for-11 in three games since joining the club and is a career .152 hitter in 284 at-bats in the majors. Unless you are an owner in an AL-only seasonal league, you can ignore him.

White Sox | Tyler Saladino on the bench

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 10:29:44 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Tyler Saladino is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto. 3B Mike Olt will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return soon. Olt recently joined the White Sox but should not be a fantasy option at this point.

Cubs | Mike Olt optioned

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 17:42:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt (wrist) has been activated from the 60-day disabled list and optioned to Class AAA Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Olt began the season as the Cubs' regular third baseman but the combination of a poor start at the plate prior to going on the DL (2-for-15) and the emergence of Kris Bryant ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) resulted in him losing his job. Feel free to drop him in all fantasy formats.
