White Sox | Adam Eaton out again

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:22:17 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton is out for the second straight day against Kansas City Royals left-handed SP Danny Duffy Friday, May 27. OF Austin Jackson moves up to the leadoff spot and OF Jerry Sands is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth. OF Avisail Garcia moves to right field and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Eaton is getting a chance to rest with the team facing lefties back-to-back days. A-Jax gains notable value hitting leadoff again with a chance to find more opportunities to run and score runs. Sands has pop but is inconsistent at the plate, making him more of a low-end dart throw in DFS. Garcia continues to disappoint his owners with his power potential, and his fantasy upside remains limited hitting low in the order. .

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 | 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 | No Todd Frazier Tuesday

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:43:53 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Todd Frazier is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 17. SS Tyler Saladino is starting at third base and is batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Dallas Keuchel. OF Avisail Garcia moves up to the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: It's a rest day for the Toddfather. Get him out of your lineups. Saladino is more defensively inclined and is a very weak daily pick tonight, especially hitting at the bottom of the order. Garcia has turned it on of late and is enticing as an under-the-radar daily weapon against the struggling Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is hitting .400 (18-for-45) with 11 runs scored, two homers and nine RBIs over the past 12 games. He remains a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed play despite the hitless contest.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia back in there

Thu, 05 May 2016 13:05:00 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting seventh as the designated hitter against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is off to another slow start with a slash line of .214/.291/.400 with three home runs and nine RBI. Coming off the injury this week, you may want to reserve him to a bench role for a few days to let him shake off some rust.

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.
