White Sox | Still no Avisail Garcia

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:49:59 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 4. OF Jerry Sands will once again serve as the designated hitter and is batting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz.

Fantasy Tip: Sands has easy home run power but struggles to make consistent contact. That usually relegates him to a daily option to avoid, but he's facing the inconsistent Buchholz tonight and could break out. Consider using a flier on Sands as a deep sleeper this evening.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia remains sidelined

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:51:40 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. OF Jerry Sands is the designated hitter and is batting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Garcia hurt now, but he's hitting only .214 (15-for-70) after the first month. His ownership should be limited to deep mixed and AL-only leagues, and you'll have to keep him benched for now. Sands is more of a dice roll as a deep sleeper in daily games for his power stroke.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia, Jimmy Rollins out

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 12:42:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia and SS Jimmy Rollins are not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Saturday, April 30. INF Tyler Saladino will bat second and play shortstop, while OF Jerry Sands will bat seventh and serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino is batting .174 with a home run and three RBI in 24 at-bats, while Sands is 5-for-20 with a home run and three RBI. Both players should be viewed as sources of desperation salary cap relief in daily fantasy games.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia sitting out

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 10:41:55 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Sunday, April 24. OF Jerry Sands will serve as the designated hitter and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Sands has not seen regular playing time but does have at least one hit in three of his last four games. Sands could be an option for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues but is not a strong fantasy option.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia, Jimmy Rollins out

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:35:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia and SS Jimmy Rollins are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Jerry Sands is serving as the designated hitter and batting seventh, while SS Tyler Saladino is at the 6 and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez. Also, OF Austin Jackson moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is losing fantasy appeal very quickly with his .146 start (7-for-48 with two home runs), and he could lose more playing time to Sands. With that said, Sands has plenty of home run pop but has his daily value capped hitting low in the order. Saladino did homer the other day but shouldn't garner much attention in any format. A-Jax has a favorable lineup spot but is hitting only .170 and remains a low-end fantasy commodity.

White Sox | Two White Sox out of the lineup

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 08:31:57 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins and OF Avisail Garcia are out of the lineup Wednesday, April 20. SS Tyler Saladino is hitting second, and 1B Jerry Sands is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino is 3-for-11 (.273) on the season devoid of many counting stats. He and Sands don't carry the clout for a DFS start against Garrett Richards.

White Sox | Three CWS regulars sitting Sunday

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 09:35:21 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera, C Alex Avila and SS Jimmy Rollins are out of the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, April 17. OF Jerry Sands will bat fifth and serve as the designated hitter, C Dioner Navarro will bat eighth and SS Tyler Saladino will bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino and Sands are a combined 5-for-14 at the dish with one home run and four RBI, making them worthy of consideration as inexpensive fliers for daily games. Navarro is 1-for-16 and should be avoided in all formats during this ice-cold stretch.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia sitting vs. Twins

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 14:02:07 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. OF Jerry Sands is batting seventh as the designated hitter against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to replace Garcia in your fantasy lineups Wednesday. He is off to a 4-for-25 start with a .530 OPS but owns plenty of upside, so stay patient with the 25-year-old outfielder for the immediate future. Be wary of relying on Sands. He has a career .198/.283/.283 slash line against right-handed pitchers.

White Sox | Jerry Sands playing Sunday

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 09:25:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Jerry Sands will bat seventh and serve as the designated hitter against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin Sunday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Sands is a lifetime .198 hitter in 212 at-bats versus right-handed pitching, so he should be avoided in all fantasy formats Sunday.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall, Chris Johnson out

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 10:38:36 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall and 1B Chris Johnson are not in the lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, Sept. 30. OF Jerry Sands is in right field and batting seventh, while 1B Jesus Aguilar draws a start at first base and is hitting eighth against Twins SP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Game 1 of this doubleheader will not be counted on FantasyScore, so you can ignore all players from both teams.
