White Sox | Jake Petricka keeping closer role

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 20:56:04 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Jake Petricka will hang onto his closer's role even with RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) back from the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Petricka has done an adequate job in the closer's role, and he is a must-start in all AL-only leagues and most mixed formats as a No. 2 fantasy closer.

White Sox | Matt Lindstrom activated

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 11:47:54 -0700

The Chicago White Sox activated RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) from the disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Lindstrom is a very real threat to steal the ninth-inning closing duties from Jake Petricka for the remainder of the season. They could ease Lindstrom back in in less-stressful innings to start, though. Add Lindstrom immediately if you're chasing saves.

White Sox | Zach Putnam activated, Andre Rienzo sent down

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 09:03:05 -0700

The Chicago White Sox activated RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, Aug. 8, and optioned RP Andre Rienzo in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Jake Petricka has been holding down the ninth-inning save duties with Putnam on the DL. Putnam could threaten Petricka for save chances eventually, so if you're searching for saves avenues, Putnam is worth a look in deeper leagues.

White Sox | Matt Lindstrom to throw simulated game Tuesday

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 11:34:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) is expected to throw a simulated game Tuesday, July 29, in Detroit.

Fantasy Tip: This is expected to be the final step before he begins a minor league rehab assignment. Lindstrom is expected to regain closing duties for the White Sox once he is activated from the disabled list. He is worth stashing away on your bench if you can afford the roster spot. For now, RPs Zach Putnam and Jake Petricka are sharing closing duties on the South Side and should be owned in AL-only formats.

White Sox | More on Zach Putnam's injury

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 14:15:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) has an issue around the middle of his right (throwing) shoulder, near the joint. He felt it in the last few outings and was hoping rest over the All-Star break would help it heal.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, since he's now on the DL, it hasn't. Jake Petricka is the fantasy pickup as he is in the lead for saves at the moment. However, he may cede those duties if Matt Lindstrom (ankle) proves healthy in the next few weeks.

Chicago White Sox RP Jake Petricka recorded his fourth save Monday, July 21.

White Sox | Zach Putnam, Jake Petricka to see ninth-inning work

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 10:33:34 -0700

Chicago White Sox RPs Zach Putnam and Jake Petricka are currently the favorites to work in the ninth inning with a lead, according to manager Robin Ventura.

Fantasy Tip: Both relievers should be picked up from the waiver wire in AL-only leagues if you're desperate for saves. However, they are expected to lose whatever value they have once Matt Lindstrom returns from his ankle injury.

Chicago White Sox RP Jake Petricka pitched two innings for the save Sunday, July 6. He has made eight consecutive scoreless appearances.

White Sox | Ronald Belisario loses closer job

Fri, 27 Jun 2014 20:49:26 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Ronald Belisario will no longer be the team's closer, according to manager Robin Ventura. RP Jake Petricka received the save Friday, June 27, and is an option to close. Ventura has not decided who will fill the role at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Petricka likely will be in the mix since he got the chance Friday. Zach Putnam and Javy Guerra could also receive save chances in the upcoming weeks. Matt Lindstrom (ankle) could also be back in a few weeks and take over the role. Owners could consider adding one of them at this point but could also wait to see if Ventura names a closer.
