White Sox | Adam LaRoche continues to sit

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 16:23:39 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. OF Avisail Garcia will serve as the designated hitter again, and OF J.B. Shuck starts in right field and is hitting fifth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver.

Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has struggled all season long and now hasn't started in three straight games. While he still is intriguing in deeper leagues for his power, it's becoming harder and harder to justify hanging onto him. Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has some daily upside tonight as a sleeper play against the soft-tossing Weaver.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche sitting again

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 16:02:19 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. OF Avisail Garcia is serving as the designated hitter, while OF J.B. Shuck is starting in right field and hitting fifth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards.

Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) continues to lose playing time as he struggles at the plate. It's becoming harder to keep him on a roster in deep mixed leagues. Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has potential as a sleeper on FantasyScore, but he's facing a pitcher that has been much better at home in a pitcher-friendly environment tonight.

White Sox | J.B. Shuck nears rehab stint

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 19:24:01 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF J.B. Shuck (hamstring) is nearing a minor-league rehab assignment, as he continues to make his way back from a hamstring injury. Shuck has started to run, and he is trying to get up to top speed.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck is a part-time player who makes an occasional start. When he is in the lineup he isn't a bad salary saver option for FantasyScore players, as he has a decent average and a .700 OPS in 97 at-bats while coming at a cut-rate price. Trayce Thompson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been seeing occasional starts with Shuck and Emilio Bonifacio on the mend.

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:45:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 26. OF J.B. Shuck is playing center field and leading off against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Sunday

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Eaton ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has fared well when given an opportunity this season and sports a .274 batting average and .337 on-base percentage. He has minimal power, though, and owns a career .333 slugging percentage, so keep you expectations in check if you utilize him as a low-priced flier at FantasyScore.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia out of lineup

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 15:44:46 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting .281 on the season, while walking more than he's striking out. Shuck has been feasting off righties this season, to the tune of a .306 batting average, making him an excellent, cost-effective FantasyScore option, despite the tough matchup.
