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.

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list Thursday, July 24, with right shoulder inflammation. In a corresponding move, RP Andre Rienzo was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.
Fantasy Tip: Putnam was getting looks in the ninth inning, so with him out of the committee, Jake Petricka should see more opportunities. Javy Guerra and Daniel Webb could also get an occasional chance. Matt Lindstrom should take over closing duties, when he returns from his ankle injury. However, Perticka is an immediate add, with Guerra and Webb more speculative additions, for those chasing saves.

Due to the rainout Tuesday, June 10, Chicago White Sox SP Andre Rienzo will have his turn in the rotation skipped and he will not start again until Sunday, June 15.
Fantasy Tip: There was some doubt if Rienzo would stick around in the rotation this week, but his skipped gave him a vote of confidence for at least one more start. He likely needs to have an adequate outing Sunday, or his starting job could be in jeopardy. Right now he is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues.

Chicago White Sox P Andre Rienzo could make the start against the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, April 22, if SP Chris Sale (soreness) isn't able to make his scheduled start.
Fantasy Tip: Rienzo's start would likely just be a one-time spot start, since Sale's body soreness doesn't look like it'll cause him to miss a start.
