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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
Mon, 23 May 2016 20:01:30 -0700
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.
Mon, 23 May 2016 19:55:05 -0700
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.
