White Sox | Brett Lawrie remains sidelined

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 12:31:50 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Tuesday, July 26. SS Tyler Saladino will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Lawrie will need to be placed on the disabled list. Saladino is hitting .389 with one RBI over the last seven days and should be a starting candidate in AL-only leagues.

White Sox | Tyler Saladino helps make history

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 00:03:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Tyler Saladino hit a game-winning single for a 5-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday, July 25. Saladino helped the White Sox win their third straight game in the last at-bat, the first time they have done that since August 1962.

Fantasy Tip: Right now Saladino is a decent bet in DFS leagues, because he is still in a platoon with Brett Lawrie in the middle infield. Saladino does well in games where he plays, so fantasy owners may want to watch for those matchups.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie still out vs. Cubs

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:04:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. SS Tyler Saladino is starting at second base and is hitting ninth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie hasn't played since last Thursday, so he could be a DL candidate if he needs to miss anymore time. Plan accordingly. Saladino doesn't move the fantasy needle much as a replacement and faces a very tough matchup in Arrieta Monday. Ignore him in all fantasy formats.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie remains out

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:41:33 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24. INF Tyler Saladino is starting at second base and batting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie is missing his third consecutive game Sunday, but he's not expected to require a stint on the disabled list. Saladino is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests and a depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Stay tuned for updates on Lawrie's status.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie sitting vs. Tigers

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:12:52 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. INF Tyler Saladino is starting at second base and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie injured his hamstring Thursday, July 21, and he's currently considered day-to-day. He sits with a decent stat line of 35 runs, 12 home runs, 36 RBI and seven stolen bases. However, sitting with a .248/.310/.413 slash line leaves owners wishing for more. Saladino isn't much of a fantasy priority facing Fulmer Friday.

White Sox | Three-hit night for Tyler Saladino

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 20:42:52 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Tyler Saladino went 3-for-5 with a run scored Wednesday, July 20, against the Seattle Mariners to raise his average to .265.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino's playing time has been sporadic to say the least, but when he gets the chance he has made the most of the opportunity lately. Still, he cannot be trusted in anything but the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues at this point.

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 | 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 | Tyler Saladino playing third base Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:54:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox INF Tyler Saladino is batting ninth and playing third base against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman Sunday, June 26. 3B Todd Frazier is batting fifth and serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino is batting just .188 through 32 at-bats during the month of June and should not be viewed as a great option in any fantasy format Sunday.

White Sox | Jose Abreu sitting vs. Blue Jays

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 14:12:39 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. SS Tyler Saladino draws into the lineup at third base and is batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Sub out Abreu where you can in seasonal leagues. He is having a huge June with five home runs, 20 RBI and a .333/.382/.615 slash line and should be viewed as a slam-dunk starter in all settings. Saladino is nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups, as his playing time has plummeted with the promotion of Tim Anderson.
