White Sox | Geovany Soto draws in against Seattle

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:53:49 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Geovany Soto is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Edgar Olmos Sunday, Aug. 30. C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been a beast against southpaws this season with a .351/.429/.622 slash line over 42 plate appearances. He stands as a potential budget play for FantasyScore players Sunday.

White Sox | Trayce Thompson batting fifth vs. Seattle

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:45:12 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Trayce Thompson is starting in right field and batting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Edgar Olmos Sunday, Aug. 30. 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been a huge boost against lefties in the heart of the lineup for Chicago. While it is a small sample size, he is 12-for-20 with three doubles, a triple and two home runs against southpaws this season. At his FantasyScore cap hit, you can lock him into your lineup as budget play.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija struggles again

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 23:46:21 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija dropped to 8-11 overall Saturday, Aug. 29, with a 7-6 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Samardzija finished with eight strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. He gave up five runs and eight hits with three walks.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has gone from being highly coveted in the offseason to people wondering just what the heck is a matter with him. He finished August with an 0-6 mark and an ERA above 9.00. He should be avoided at all costs.

White Sox | Big night for Adam Eaton

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 20:56:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton went 3-for-3 with three runs scored in a 4-2 win over the Seattle Mariners Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Eaton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been struggling in the month of August, and until he strings together a few good games, he is a risky play at his current price at FantasyScore.

White Sox | Trayce Thompson batting fifth

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:21:54 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Trayce Thompson is starting in right field and batting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias Thursday, Aug. 27. 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 10-for-17 with two home runs and five RBI against southpaws to start his major league career. It is obviously an unsustainable pace, but given Thompson's salary, he is worth a long look at FantasyScore Thursday. LaRoche ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) stands to lose starts against lefties to the rookie going forward.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers receives night off

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:54:07 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Geovany Soto is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Flowers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has really struggled down the stretch with a .205/.263/.273 slash line in the second half. He should be avoided everywhere but cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) owns a .324/.410/.618 line over 39 plate appearances against lefties this season, and he checks out as a potential value play at FantasyScore Tuesday.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche out of the lineup

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:50:28 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. OF Trayce Thompson draws into the lineup and is batting fifth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid LaRoche ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Tuesday. The veteran is struggling through an awful campaign and doesn't warrant a roster spot in the majority of seasonal leagues. Thompson ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 9-for-19 to start his career, and he checks out as an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Tuesday.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche serving as DH

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 12:01:44 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche will bat sixth and serve as the designated hitter against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is only batting .151 during the month of August and should be avoided in FantasyScore until he shows signs of turning things around offensively.

White Sox | Geovany Soto catching Sunday

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:43:50 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Geovany Soto will bat eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Sunday, Aug. 23. C Tyler Flowers is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting .333 with a home run and two RBIs through 18 at-bats this month and should be considered by FantasyScore owners who need salary cap relief.

White Sox | Another 14K outing for Chris Sale

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 04:52:09 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale gave up three runs and four hits while reaching double-digit strikeouts for the 12th time in 24 starts this season, and the 30th time in his career. Sale fanned 14 hitters in an 11-4 win over the Seattle Mariners Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) has 222 strikeouts, and needless to say you should be starting him every time he pitches. He shows no signs of slowing down from the tremendous pace he is on. Sale's 12-7 record is deceptive, as the White Sox have been lackluster in hitting in the games he has lost.

White Sox | Chris Sale to face SEA Friday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 17:58:26 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale, who will start against the Seattle Mariners Friday, Aug. 21, is 2-0 with a 1.26 ERA over his last two starts. He is coming off a performance against the Chicago Cubs where he struck out a career-high 15 batters over seven innings.

Fantasy Tip: In his career against the Mariners, Sale ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) is 3-0 with a 2.41 ERA. He should be started in FantasyScore every time he takes the mound.

White Sox | Jose Quintana earns seventh win

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 05:07:54 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana allowed two runs and eight hits over six innings, struck out three and walked two in an 8-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Thursday, Aug. 20. It was the 15th consecutive start in which he gave up fewer than three walks.

Fantasy Tip: Quintana ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) has had some hard luck this season, with a 7-10 overall record, but the lack of walks suggests a pitcher who has decent command. Still, you may want to stay away at this price unless the matchup in FantasyScore is just too tempting to pass up.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche busts his slump

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 05:02:06 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche broke out of a 1-for-24 slump at the plate with a single and a two-run homer Thursday, Aug. 20, in an 8-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: LaRoche ($3,900, 7.6% of cap) knows he has been batting below his capabilities this season, even going so far as to tell the media he would have benched himself two months ago. Until he can prove this is not just one breakout game, it's best to keep him seated.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers sitting out

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 16:02:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 20. C Geovany Soto is behind the plate and is hitting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) does have eight home runs on the season, which isn't bad for a backup catcher, and he's facing a young pitcher making just his third major league start this year. Soto is a low-end catching target on FantasyScore that could be appealing if you're looking for salary cap relief.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche in season-long slump

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 15:25:38 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche continues to ride the bench as he boasts a .208 average and .336 slugging percentage on the season. "Just another little breather, a few days to regroup. Get in the cage, get a feel back and see what happens. I can't blame him at all. I don't have a great argument to go in his office and talk my way back into a lineup at the moment. I feel bad putting him in this situation," LaRoche said. LaRoche isn't blaming his season-long slump on his full-time move to designated hitter, and his swing mechanics have been fine. Manager Robin Ventura said LaRoche will play again, but he won't be the everyday option at DH.

Fantasy Tip: LaRoche's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) slump has reached its breaking point for his owners, and now that he's losing playing time, too, it's hard to justify keeping him in deep mixed leagues. You'll obviously want to avoid him on FantasyScore, too, at least until he shows some signs of life at the plate.
