White Sox | Melky Cabrera in two-hole

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:44:05 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera is hitting second against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Thursday, May 26. As a result, SS Jimmy Rollins moves down to seventh in the lineup against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: The Melk Man continues to put the ball in play often for a high average (.294). However, he has no home runs against left-handers from the right side and has less power in that setup. He's still not a bad option for your lineups, but temper expectations tonight. Rollins is a very low-end shortstop option in daily formats against the southpaw.

White Sox | Adam Eaton takes a seat

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:38:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. OF Austin Jackson moves to center field and is hitting leadoff against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy. Also, OF Jerry Sands draws into the lineup as the designated hitter and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: A-Jax has the speed and Sands has the power, but both are merely low-end flyers in daily contests tonight. Jackson's move up the lineup makes him a little more intriguing for potential runs scored and stolen bases, but don't overvalue him because of that. Sands was once a big-time prospect but has hit just 10 home runs in his five years in the big leagues.

White Sox | Jose Abreu productive at plate

Wed, 25 May 2016 20:43:16 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu went 3-for-4 against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu has gone 6-for-8 over the last two games but has hit only one home run in his last 17 games. Abreu has posted decent numbers and will continue to hit in the middle of the lineup, so he should be an attractive option for most owners.

White Sox | Melky Cabrera goes deep

Wed, 25 May 2016 20:31:10 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera went 1-for-4 with one home run and two RBI against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has been performing well at the plate this month and has one home run and 13 RBI during that span. Cabrera is not a great option for owners looking for power, but he should be a fine starter in most leagues.

White Sox | Melky Cabrera hits third long fly

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:54:43 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Melky Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during the White Sox's 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera's numbers don't jump off the page, but he has modest four-category production with 78 runs, three home runs, 20 RBI and a .294/.362/.417 slash line. There is room for more pop, too, and as long as Cabrera continues to hit in the heart of the order, he'll be a viable starting outfielder in deep mixed leagues.

White Sox | Jose Quintana solid in losing bid

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:49:53 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out eight hitters through six innings during the White Sox's 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Quintana has now lost three consecutive starts, and his ERA has climbed from 1.38 to 2.22 during the stretch. However, if you were counting on the mid-rotation hurler to return ace results all season, your expectations were out of whack. Going forward, Quintana projects to provide quality statistics and is well on his way to a career-best campaign.

Indains | Corey Kluber fans nine White Sox

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:44:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed two runs -- one earned -- on seven hits and one walk while striking out nine batters through 7 1/3 innings during Cleveland's 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber has been hit or miss this season and has allowed three runs or more in five of his 10 starts, but he has now allowed just three earned runs over his past 14 1/3 innings over two starts. He has also struck out 15 batters during the stretch. Expect Kluber to flirt with being a fantasy ace going forward with plenty of strikeouts and the odd rough outing a part of the package.

White Sox | Jose Abreu has diagnostics on Klubot

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:02:47 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu, who broke a skid with three hits Tuesday, May 24, has hit Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber to a tune of .357 with three homers in 28 at-bats in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu will face off against Kluber Wednesday. Abreu is catching him at the right time because he hasn't been his typical dominant self. Abreu is a high-end consideration today.

White Sox | Jimmy Rollins hitting second

Wed, 25 May 2016 09:16:23 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins is hitting second Wednesday, May 25, in place of SS Tyler Saladino.

Fantasy Tip: J-Roll is hitting .212 this month and has to face Corey Kluber today. The Klubot isn't dominating the way he has, and Rollins' spot in the order gives him a little luster today.

White Sox | Chris Sale shelled in first loss

Tue, 24 May 2016 23:34:38 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks while fanning seven in 3 1/3 innings in his loss to the Cleveland Indians Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: The loss dropped Sale to 9-1 with a 2.26 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP. He remains a daily consideration each time he starts.

White Sox | Todd Frazier seeing the ball well

Tue, 24 May 2016 16:17:47 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Todd Frazier is 19-for-54 (.352) with seven home runs, 16 RBI, 10 walks and a 1.231 OPS in the last 15 games.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier leads the American League with 14 homers on the season and has raised his average to .243 with the recent hot stretch. He won't be helpful to your team's average, but Frazier is already well on his way to 30 home runs and could reach 100 RBI for the first time in his career, too. He's a solid upper-tier starting third baseman.

White Sox | Jimmy Rollins takes a seat

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:36:08 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. SS Tyler Saladino draws the start at the 6 and is hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin. Also, OF Austin Jackson moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino doesn't have much offensive upside with only five home runs in the last two seasons combined. Look for better options at your shortstop position. Jackson's greatest asset is his speed, but he has only one theft on the season and is hitting .240 with no home runs. The move up the order makes him a potential sleeper target, but don't expect much in return.

White Sox | David Robertson earns save

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:07:13 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson pitched a scoreless ninth inning in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians Monday, May 23, to pick up his 12th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson has pitched very well this season and has allowed only two earned runs in 17 appearances. Robertson is one of the better closers in the league and should be starting in all leagues.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie drives in three

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:01:30 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie went 2-for-2 with one home run and three RBI in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie has recorded four hits and three RBI over his last three games before entering the second game of the doubleheader. He has seen a dip on his batting average this month but is still a decent option in deeper leagues.

White Sox | Todd Frazier goes deep

Mon, 23 May 2016 19:55:05 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with one home run and one RBI in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier does not have the best batting average but does have 14 home runs and 34 RBI on the season. He should be an attractive starting candidate in most leagues because of his power potential.
