White Sox | Carlos Rodon's usage will vary

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:12:23 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox P Carlos Rodon will be utilized in numerous situations, according to general manager Rick Hahn. Hahn noted Rodon could pitch multiple innings or be used as a specialist to retire an individual left-handed batter.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon will eventually land in the starting rotation, and is worth a roster spot in the majority of formats. He'll be added to the FantasyScore player pool once his first start is officially announced.

White Sox | Geovany Soto starting against Tribe

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 12:45:51 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Geovany Soto is batting eighth and starting behind the dish against the Cleveland Indians Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) faces a rolling Trevor Bauer, and he has traditionally had more success against left-handed pitchers. View him as nothing more than a cap-relief flier.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon could be in rotation soon

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 10:01:57 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon, who is equipped with a devastating slider and who has been compared with Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw and San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner, will initially pitch out of the bullpen, but he could find himself in the starting rotation as soon as the series against the Detroit Tigers May 5-7. A heavy workload at North Carolina State last year makes him an injury risk, but he could still replace SPs John Danks or Hector Noesi in the rotation and throw a total of around 175 to 180 innings in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon is currently unavailable at FantasyScore because he'll initially pitch in relief. In all other fantasy leagues, Rodon should be acquired immediately and stashed in the meantime. There's a good chance he's already owned in AL-only formats.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon to be recalled

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 14:54:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon will be recalled from Triple-A as soon as Monday, April 20, but he will initially pitch out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon has no initial FantasyScore value due to his not being activated in time for the current weekly lineup. As for his status, pick him up if you can off waiver wires in your leagues and go for it once he starts to show up on daily leagues. He's worth the salary.

Tigers | Rajai Davis hitting leadoff vs. White Sox

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 06:32:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is batting leadoff against the Chicago White Sox Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) makes for a nice upside play in FantasyScore contests Sunday. He owned lefties last season with a .356/.382/.557 slash line, however opposing starter Jose Quintana is an above-average starter. Keep Davis in mind if you're chasing cap relief for your daily lineups.

White Sox | Chris Sale has good history against DET

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:47:06 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale has a 2.84 ERA with 106 strikeouts in 92 innings in his career against the Detroit Tigers, who he faces Saturday, April 18. Tigers are hitting .220 against him, but he is only 5-5 against the Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: While Sale ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) is typically a dynamite option at FantasyScore every time he toes the rubber, it might be hard to justify paying up for him tomorrow while going up against the hot Tigers offense.

White Sox | Micah Johnson not playing

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 10:21:58 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson has the day off Friday, April 17. 2B Emilio Bonifacio is starting at second base and hitting ninth in the batting order against Detroit Tigers SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a bit too expensive for our taste at FantasyScore, especially since he has just four at-bats this season and will be hitting out of the nine hole against Price.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers sitting Friday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:19:22 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 17. C Geovany Soto draws the start behind the dish again and is hitting eighth in the batting order against Detroit Tigers SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) already has one home run in just eight at-bats in 2015, but a matchup against Price isn't what the doctor ordered for those looking at him as a cheap catching option today at FantasyScore.

White Sox | Conor Gillaspie sitting Friday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:17:52 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 17. 2B Gordon Beckham is starting at third base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Detroit Tigers SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is just 3-for-24 with four strikeouts in his career against Price, making him a weaker second base option at FantasyScore today.

White Sox | Jeff Samardzija to face Detroit

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 21:32:36 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija is expected to start against the Detroit Tigers Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Samardzija ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is off to a slow start, and he brings a 6.23 ERA into a tough matchup with a Tigers offense that ranks in the top three in runs scored, batting average and slugging percentage. It is best to avoid Samardzija at FantasyScore.

White Sox | No Tyler Flowers Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:17:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is receiving the day off against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Wednesday, April 15. C Geovany Soto is starting behind the dish and hitting eighth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is surely a cheap catching alternative at FantasyScore today. However, he hit just .239 with one home run against right-handers in 2014, and he should be considered a weak daily play.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia sitting Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:14:13 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Wednesday, April 15. OF J.B. Shuck is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't a recommended play at FantasyScore Wednesday against Bauer, who looked dominant in his season debut last week.

White Sox | Micah Johnson out vs. Indians

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 13:35:30 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson is out of the regular lineup Tuesday, April 14, against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is getting a night off against Indians SP Carlos Carrasco. Emilio Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is in the lineup and is a source of steals if he can get on, but he is not a recommended option. Other 2B like Toronto's Devon Travis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Kansas City's Omar Infante ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) may be better.

White Sox | Chris Sale strong in first outing

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 14:25:02 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale struck out eight batters in six innings of work Sunday, April 12, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Sale ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) was facing the Minnesota Twins, so that's not a big reason to get excited. Still, this was Sale's first start following the foot issue that dogged him through spring training, and it was a good one. This should soothe Sale owners moving forward.

White Sox | Carlos Rodon solid in Class AAA start

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 05:35:24 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon struck out nine batters through five innings in a winning effort Saturday, April 11. He allowed two runs -- one earned -- via two hits and two walks.

Fantasy Tip: Rodon is fine-tuning an off-speed pitch in the minors, but he isn't expected to stay down long. The White Sox are currently trotting John Danks and Hector Noesi to the mound as their fourth and fifth starter, respectively, and neither has the arm and upside of Rodon. Rodon should be owned in the majority of formats. Continue to check back for updates on his pending recall to the South Side.
