White Sox | Two players sitting for White Sox

Sun, 22 May 2016 10:03:17 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu and OF Avisail Garcia are not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura. OF Jerry Sands will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Jimmy Rollins will serve as the designated hitter, while SS Carlos Sanchez will start at shortstop and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Sands has three hits in his last two games and can be a sleeper option in some fantasy leagues. Sanchez has not recorded great numbers since being recalled and should be avoided in all leagues.

White Sox | Jose Abreu will be DH

Sat, 21 May 2016 09:39:22 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu will serve as the designated hitter against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Saturday, May 21. OF Jerry Sands will start at first base and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu is a must-start option in all leagues even though he is hitting .200 over the last seven days. Sands is hitting 4-for-17 with three RBI this month but is not a strong option in most leagues.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie, Avisail Garcia sitting

Thu, 19 May 2016 14:51:33 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie and OF Avisail Garcia are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19. 2B Carlos Sanchez is starting at the keystone and hitting second, while OF Jerry Sands is serving as the designated hitter and is batting seventh against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh. Also, SS Jimmy Rollins drops to sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie is hitless in his last three games and is batting .228 (13-for-57) this month after a hot April. If you have other options, consider benching him for a spell in traditional leagues. Sanchez has never hit over .250 in three years in the majors and is a low-end middle infield option. Sands has respectable power but is another low-end dart throw in DFS play.

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.
