White Sox | Justin Morneau takes a seat

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:34:12 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Justin Morneau is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with OF Avisail Garcia hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is hitting just .156 this month and just .196 against left-handers. He's not a good option against lefty Matt Boyd.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia remains out

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 13:55:15 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, July 21, in favor of 1B Justin Morneau at designated hitter. Morneau is batting fifth and facing Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia, who continues to frustrate fantasy owners with a .234/.309/.332 slash line and only five home runs, could continue to lose playing time at DH to Morneau, making him only an AL-only candidate at this point. Morneau has just three hits in 13 at-bats for the Pale Hose and is a shell of his former self. He's worth a flier, though, in AL leagues if he sees regular at-bats.

White Sox | Tim Anderson, Avisail Garcia out

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:01:07 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Tim Anderson and OF Avisail Garcia are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. SS Tyler Saladino is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth, while 1B Justin Morneau is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez. Also, OF Melky Cabrera moves into the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to like about Saladino hitting ninth for DFS purposes against King Felix in his return. However, both Melky and Morneau can be under-the-radar value plays in prime lineup spots. Hernandez has put up good numbers but isn't his usual dominant self this year and is making his first start back today after a long layoff.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia takes a seat

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 15:32:15 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is out of the lineup Saturday, July 16, with 1B Justin Morneau in at DH and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Morneau takes on Matt Shoemaker, and it's probably not a good decision to use the DFS flyer on the former MVP in his first start this season.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia sitting out vs. Atlanta

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:09:16 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 8. 2B Carlos Sanchez draws into the lineup at second base and is batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is nearing bust territory given his .238/.307/.340 slash line and five home runs this season. Sanchez owns a career .314 slugging percentage through 554 plate appearances and shouldn't be in your daily contest plans Friday. He doesn't move the needle in seasonal leagues, either.

White Sox | Melky Cabrera remains sidelined

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 09:58:09 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera (wrist) is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Sunday, July 3. OF Avisail Garcia will start in left field and is batting eighth. C Alex Avila will serve as the designated hitter, while C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro is hitting .333 with two extra base hits and four RBI over the last seven days and should be a starting candidate for some daily fantasy leagues. Garcia and Avila should be used in AL-only leagues but may not have much value in mixed leagues.

White Sox | Tyler Saladino draws a start

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:39:33 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Tyler Saladino is starting at third base and is hitting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Wednesday, June 29. 3B Todd Frazier moves over to first base, 1B Jose Abreu is serving as the designated hitter and OF Avisail Garcia is in left field with OF Melky Cabrera (wrist) out.

Fantasy Tip: With Melky missing at least a few days, Saladino could sub in regularly in the short term. He's hitting just .250 on the year, though, and has just eight homers in the last two seasons, so his offensive upside is low. Look elsewhere tonight for a DFS sleeper at shortstop.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia sitting out

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 08:58:54 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, June 25. C Alex Avila will serve as the designated hitter, while C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro has only four hits in his 30 at-bats this month and probably should be avoided because there should be better options available for owners.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia working on streak

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 19:58:09 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts Saturday, June 18, against the Cleveland Indians, but it was good enough to extend his hitting streak to eight games. He is now 11-for-32 (.344) during the impressive run.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is enjoying one of his best stretches of the season and fantasy owners in AL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats will want him active. He is also a solid mid-tier play in DFS until he starts to cool off.

White Sox | J.B. Shuck serving as DH

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 14:11:26 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF J.B. Shuck is serving as the designated hitter and is batting fifth against the Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy Friday, June 10. OF Avisail Garcia is in right field and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: With Austin Jackson (knee) on the DL, Shuck sees an immediate boost in playing time for the Pale Hose. Shuck has a career .260/.310/.329 slash line with only four home runs in five major league seasons, though, so his fantasy upside is limited, and he may share time with Jason Coats.
