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.

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 22:11:31 -0700

White Sox | Avisail Garcia using hands for thunder

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 08:34:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia has tweaked his swing to use his hands to create more power recently. "I've been using my body too much to hit the ball," Garcia said. "That's tough when you do that. I'm learning how to use my hands more because when I use more of my hands I have got more of a chance because I have enough power to hit the ball out of this ballpark. Just trying to use more of my hands, recognize the pitches because I have been swinging at a lot of bad pitches because my body is in front."

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has hit two homers in the last seven days and might be worth playing more frequently on FantasyScore.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia sitting vs. Red Sox

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:08:13 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. OF J.B. Shuck is starting in right field and batting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is having a rough month of July with just eight runs, four RBI and a .267/.313/.300 slash line over 96 plate appearances. Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has nice contact skills, but he offers absolutely no power upside. FantasyScore players should likely look elsewhere.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia on the bench

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 08:45:31 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Saturday, July 18. OF J.B. Shuck will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) likely will return to the starting lineup in the next game or two. Shuck ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has posted a solid .276 batting average in limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options to use.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche at cleanup

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 09:18:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche flip-flopped with OF Avisail Garcia and is hitting cleanup Thursday, July 9, with Garcia hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) really hasn't done anything to warrant the upgrade in the order. He has a .182 average this month and has hit R.A. Dickey to a .211 clip in his career. Meanwhile, Garcia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is more enticing with a .407-0-2 line in July. Anything can happen with a knuckler, though, so neither are great buys on FantasyScore.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia goes hitless

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 21:06:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia was hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts Tuesday, July 7, against the Toronto Blue Jays to snap a nine-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,100; or 8.2% of cap) is still a solid mid-level FantasyScore value despite the hitless game.

White Sox | Jose Abreu batting second

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 10:07:13 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu is batting second against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan Saturday, June 27. It marks the first time in Abreu's major league career that he is hitting in the No. 2 spot. OF Avisail Garcia will bat in the No. 3 spot, followed by DH Adam LaRoche, OF Melky Cabrera and SS Alexei Ramirez.

Fantasy Tip: The White Sox have scored 19 runs in their last four games, so it's uncertain what brought upon this lineup shakeup. Abreu ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is 2-for-5 in his career against Ryan and is batting .323 over the last week.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia dropped to sixth

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:59:31 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia was dropped to sixth in the order Wednesday, June 24, against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is hitting just .149 in June and probably should be avoided on FantasyScore.
