White Sox | Carlos Rodon starting Sunday

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 21:39:21 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon (wrist) will start Sunday, July 31, against the Minnesota Twins, manager Robin Ventura said.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon is a high-risk, high-reward option in daily games and AL-only formats in his return.

White Sox | Anthony Ranaudo optioned to minors

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 19:01:38 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Anthony Ranaudo was optioned to Class AAA Charlotte Thursday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be one and done for Ranaudo, at least for now, after making his team debut Wednesday evening against the Chicago Cubs. In that outing, the right-hander actually did post a quality start, pitching into the seventh inning and allowing three runs on two hits and four walks. He'll probably get another opportunity later on when the rosters expand, but isn't worth stashing at the moment.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon's return date narrowed down

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 22:44:08 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon (wrist) threw a side session on Wednesday, July 27, and could return either Sunday, July 31, against the Minnesota Twins, or Tuesday, Aug. 2, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Those in AL-only leagues can consider inserting Rodon directly into their lineups upon his return so keep an eye out for an official announcement.

White Sox | Anthony Ranaudo solid in ChiSox debut

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 22:30:31 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Anthony Ranaudo allowed three runs on two hits, both home runs, against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, July 27. He walked four and struck out three. Ranaudo also hit a home run.

Fantasy Tip: Ranaudo acquitted himself well, especially given the talent of the Cubs' lineup and hostile environment. Those in AL-only leagues should keep an eye on him to see how he fares Tuesday in Motown.

White Sox | No Justin Morneau vs. Cubbies

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:11:17 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Justin Morneau is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Without being able to utilize a designated hitter Wednesday, Morneau lands on the bench. He's 7-for-30 with a .367 slugging percentage through 10 games this season and likely should be left to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues at this point.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie placed on the DL

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 12:07:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring Wednesday, July 27. In a corresponding move, INF Carlos Sanchez was recalled from the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie hasn't played since injuring his left hamstring Thursday, July 21. He can be replaced in mixed leagues given his underwhelming .248/.310/.413 slash line, but he's likely worth stashing in cavernous mixed and AL-only settings. Tyler Saladino projects to continue seeing regular duty at the keystone, but he's not a viable option in the majority of formats.

White Sox | James Shields on trading block

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:17:46 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP James Shields is on the trading block, according to sources. The White Sox are on the hook for $22 million of his salary next season, which significantly lessens the financial commitment of suitors, and Shields has posted a 1.71 ERA over his past six starts.

Fantasy Tip: Shields passed the eye test against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, July 26, and he's clearly in a groove. He's a player to watch over the coming weeks because relocating to a contender with a more pitcher-friendly park would be another boon to his fantasy value. For now, continue to start Shields with confidence.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon likely to return Aug. 3

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 22:19:56 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon (wrist) pitched 3 2/3 innings for Class AAA Charlotte on Tuesday, July 26, and indicated after the game that he expects to start against the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon has been up and down all season, but he has unequivocally been better than his 2-7 record indicates. His high strikeouts and decent ERA make him a stash option in AL-only leagues.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie headed for DL

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 19:47:23 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring) is headed for the 15-day disabled list due to his hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Lawrie in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in back-to-back games without any setbacks.

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 | Chris Sale scheduled for Thursday

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 14:35:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale will start against the Chicago Cubs Thursday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Sale facing a tough opponent following a somewhat peculiar incident that resulted in a suspension, he owns a 4.87 ERA through his past 10 outings. There are some concerns, but given his track record as a fantasy ace, you will likely want to start him in all settings.

White Sox | Jose Quintana tosses scoreless outing

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 19:26:06 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana allowed three hits while walking one and striking out four over 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Detroit Tigers Sunday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: The bullpen cost Quintana a win, but he has been sharp in his two starts since the All-Star break and should be starting in all formats.

White Sox | David Robertson hit hard

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 19:21:42 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson blew a save but picked up the win against the Detroit Tigers Sunday, July 24, allowing three solo home runs in the top of the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson has endured a few awful outings recently, but he has been good enough as the closer to retain the job for the foreseeable future.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon set for rehab start

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 16:30:26 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon (wrist) will make a rehab start for Class AAA Charlotte Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon continues to post solid strikeout numbers, but he struggles with consistency. Stash him in AL-only leagues and in deeper mixed formats if you need to bump up your strikeout totals.
