White Sox | Gordon Beckham plays field in rehab

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 19:42:19 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham (oblique) played his first game at second base during his minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham. He was hitless in six at-bats during the doubleheader Tuesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: There is no word on when Beckham will officially return from the 15-day disabled list. However, fantasy owners will want to play it safe and keep him reserved until he can play a game or two to prove his health before plugging him back into the active lineup.

White Sox | Alexei Ramirez has refined approach at the plate

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 07:27:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Alexei Ramirez predominately struggled in April until he hit .281 in April last year. His average never dipped below .271 for any other month in 2013, which attributes his rise in consistency. He is hitting .420 and riding a 13-game hitting streak this month. Ramirez's usage of the whole field has been a crucial adjustment. "Pitchers are trying to pitch, and if I hit them good on one side, they are looking for another," Ramirez said through translator and White Sox manager of cultural development Lino Diaz. "So I've been lucky to be able to pretty much hit the ball where it's pitched. If I'm getting hits in one area, then they are throwing to other areas. I've been waiting for (the pitcher) in that area, too."

White Sox | Frank Francisco to start in minors

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 15:14:27 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP Frank Francisco will report to Triple-A Charlotte Monday, April 14. He has 73 career saves and a 3.93 ERA in close to 400 major league outings over nine seasons. The team's bullpen ERA is last in the American League at 6.93 and is tied for the league lead with 26 walks. RP Matt Lindstrom, the team's closer, has a 5.40 ERA in his first five appearances and blew the save Sunday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Save searchers need to put Francisco on their watch list, especially if Lindstrom continues to struggle with Nate Jones (back) on the shelf.

White Sox | Frank Francisco signs

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:34:47 -0700

The Chicago White Sox signed free-agent RP Frank Francisco (Mets) to an undisclosed deal Monday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Francisco brings some closing experience to a team that may be looking for an option to replace Matt Lindstrom in the ninth-inning role soon. It's unclear if Francisco will need to prove himself in the minors first before getting a shot at a late-inning role in the majors first. Saves-desperate owners in AL leagues might need to snatch him up quickly.

White Sox | Dayan Viciedo looking to be more selective

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 19:27:32 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Dayan Viciedo said he has been working on being more selective at the plate and swinging only at strikes. "That's the plan, to work on that, a lot of strike-zone discipline," Viciedo said. "But more important than that is staying more consistent with the plan and staying with your routine every day. We'll do our best to stay with that, and it's very important to have a lot of confidence in myself. So far it hasn't been that difficult, so we just have to stay disciplined with it."
