Chicago White Sox 2B Carlos Sanchez was officially called up from Class AAA Charlotte (N.C.) Friday, May 15.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is expected to take over everyday duty at the keystone for Chicago, and he is worth a speculative flier in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats. FantasyScore players will want to allow him a few games to become comfortable at the dish before utilizing him in the contests. Sanchez has nice contact skills with a dash of speed, but don't count on much power from the 23-year-old second baseman.

Chicago White Sox 2B Carlos Sanchez will come up from the minors to start Friday, May 15, and he'll take over as the team's starting second baseman. 2Bs Gordon Beckham and Emilio Bonifacio will continue to serve as utility infielders.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez will immediately gain value in very deep mixed and AL-only leagues with a starting job. The 22-year-old Venezuelan doesn't possess much power (career-high seven home runs in the minors in 2014), but he does have 20-stolen base potential over a full season. Take a wait-and-see approach at FantasyScore, but Sanchez could become a popular sleeper pick if he starts out hot for the Pale Hose.

Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson was sent to Class AAA Charlotte (N.C.) Thursday, May 14, and 2B Carlos Sanchez is expected to be promoted to the majors.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez was hitting .344 (45-for-131) with two home runs, 17 RBI and five stolen bases for Charlotte this year in the minors. He's not much of a power threat, but he has 20-stolen base potential over a full season. AL-only managers should take notice immediately and add him if they are in need of a middle infielder. At FantasyScore, Sanchez will open as a cheap second base option that could be an excellent value play if he gets off to a good start. Take a wait-and-see approach for now.

Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson is not in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, April 8. 2B Carlos Sanchez is starting at the keystone and batting ninth in Johnson's absence.
Fantasy Tip: This has the potential to be a platoon situation, which would severely hinder Johnson's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) seasonal value. However, any boost you receive from Johnson outside of stolen bases should really be consider a bonus. With so many games on the docket Wednesday, FantasyScore players should aim higher than Sanchez ($2,000, 4.0% of cap).
