  • Michael Kopech To Start Game 2 On Sunday

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Michael Kopech has been named the team's starter for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the New York Yankees. Johnny Cueto will be on the mound for Game 1. Kopech was away from the team as he was on the paternity list this past week, awaiting the birth of his son Vander. The 26-year-old has a stellar 1.54 ERA and 0.94 WHIP on the year. He failed to go deeper than five innings in any of his first five starts of the year. However, he's managed to earn quality outings in two straight starts since then, pitching exactly six innings on each occasion. If he can continue pitching a bit deeper into games, he'll have much more win potential and overall fantasy potential this year.

  • Jose Abreu To Play Through Illness On Saturday

    Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu (illness) is dealing with an upper respiratory issue, according to White Sox beat writer Daryl Van Schouwen. To ease his workload in Saturday's game against the New York Yankees, he will be slotting in as the team's designated hitter with Andrew Vaughn covering first base. Abreu is hitting just .207/.299/.326 over 36 games on the year, but he's shown some signs of turning a corner lately. Over his past four games, he's recorded four hits (including two doubles) as well as five walks. Abreu has a history of heating up at the plate as the season goes on, so fantasy managers should remain patient with the 35-year-old veteran.

  • Yoan Moncada Scratched With Leg Injury Saturday

    Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada (leg) is a late scratch from the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the New York Yankees. Josh Harrison will now be covering third base in the game. Moncada felt discomfort in his leg during this past Thursday's game and the injury is still nagging him. However, manager Tony La Russa stated that Moncada will be available off the bench for Saturday's game. The 26-year-old has only appeared in nine games so far this year, but he's already launched a pair of home runs while slashing .200/.256/.350. It sounds as if there's a good chance he'll be back in the starting lineup for at least one of the games in the team's doubleheader on Sunday.

  • Yankees-White Sox Postponed Friday

    Friday's game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox in the Bronx has been postponed due to the forecast of sustained inclement weather. The contest will be made up as the first game of a doubleheader on Sunday, and it will begin at 3:05 pm ET. Yankees left-hander Nestor Cortes was set to start on Friday, while left-hander Dallas Keuchel was scheduled to toe the rubber for the Pale Hose. Make sure to remove all players from these two teams from your starting fantasy lineups on Friday, including pitchers Cortes and Keuchel.

  • Michael Kopech Returns From Paternity List

    The Chicago White Sox activated starting pitcher Michael Kopech from the paternity list on Friday and optioned reliever Ryan Burr to Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move. Kopech went on the paternity list on Tuesday and will return without missing a start. The 26-year-old will take the mound next on Saturday against the New York Yankees. Kopech has been excellent for fantasy managers through his first seven starts of the year, allowing only six earned runs while walking 17 and striking out 33 in 35 innings pitched. He'll have to cut down on his free passes if he wants to continue having success, though, and his matchup on Saturday against the Yanks will be a tough one.

  • Luis Robert Goes 3-For-4 With A Homer On Thursday

    Chicago White Sox outfielder Luis Robert had a fantastic day at the plate in the team's 7-4 win over the Kansas City Royals on Thursday. He went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI. The 24-year-old slugger has been dominant at the plate in May. He's slashing .380/.429/.521 so far this month with three home runs, 11 RBI and 13 runs. His strong start to the year is heavily supported by his gaudy underlying statistics. He has a .336 xBA (98th percentile) and a .621 xSLG (96th percentile). He's also shown the best plate discipline of his career with a 15.4% strikeout rate, down from last year's 20.6% clip.

  • Yoan Moncada Dealing With Minor Leg Issue

    Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada (leg) felt discomfort in his leg during Thursday's game against the Kansas City Royals. He didn't leave the game early and went 1-for-5 with two strikeouts. According to manager Tony La Russa, Moncada seemed to be moving around without issue postgame. The 26-year-old should be fine heading into the weekend series against the New York Yankees. He is slashing .200/.256/.350 with two home runs, four RBI, and four runs across nine games in 2022. Fantasy managers should check back on Friday to ensure Moncada is in the lineup before starting him.

  • Liam Hendriks Converts His 12th Save On Thursday

    Chicago White Sox closer Liam Hendriks earned his 12th save of the year on Thursday as he closed out the team's 7-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning, but he did run into some trouble as he allowed a pair of hits. Hendriks is now 12-for-15 on the year in save opportunities. He has a 3.93 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. He's been far from the dominant closer he was in 2021, when he locked down 38 saves and pitched to a 2.54 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP. Still, fantasy managers can't complain about the high saves total so far this year and his job security is about as good as any closer out there.

  • Jose Abreu Drives In Two On Tuesday

    Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with a double, walk, and two RBI in the White Sox 3-0 win over the Kansas City Royals in the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday. Abreu's performance in game one was a welcome sight to fantasy managers who have him rostered. Abreu is off to a brutal start in 2022, slashing just .211/.297/.328 with only three home runs and 14 RBI over 128 at-bats and 34 games. Abreu was out of the lineup for the nightcap. Perhaps Tuesday afternoon's performance will get his bat going. Abreu is coming off a 37-homer, 117-RBI season, which followed his 2020 American League MVP campaign. Despite the very mediocre start to the season, fantasy managers should remain patient with Abreu given his track record and current underlying metrics which do suggest positive regression forthcoming.

  • Tim Anderson Sitting Tuesday For Game Two Of Twin Bill

    Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson is out of the lineup for the second game of a doubleheader on Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals. Anderson went 0-for-4 with a run scored and a strikeout in the first game which the White Sox won 3-0. Anderson is hitting a solid .328/.363/.484 on the season with four home runs, 12 RBI, 19 runs scored, and five steals over 31 games. He remains a must-start in all formats. He should be back in the lineup on Wednesday when the White Sox again face the Royals and Zack Greinke in Kansas City.

  • Lance Lynn To Face Hitters Friday

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn (knee) is scheduled to face live hitters on Friday in New York. Lynn has been out all year to this point after having surgery in early April to fix a slight tear in his right knee. The two-time All-Star is making an important step this week, and he could make his season debut in early June, barring any setbacks when he embarks on a minor league rehab assignment eventually. After posting a career-low 2.69 ERA and 1.07 WHIP over 28 starts in his first year in Chicago for his second All-Star appearance, Lynn should be universally rostered and stashed in fantasy leagues for the anticipation of his season debut at some point next month.

  • Michael Kopech On Paternity List, Davis Martin Starting Tuesday

    The Chicago White Sox placed starting pitcher Michael Kopech on the paternity list on Tuesday and selected the contract of right-hander Davis Martin from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move. The team also recalled right-hander Kyle Crick from Charlotte for the doubleheader and moved left-hander Garrett Crochet to the 60-day injured list. Kopech will be away from the team for at least three days, so he could make his next scheduled start on Friday against the New York Yankees. The 26-year-old has been lights-out in seven starts with a 1.54 ERA and 33 K's in 35 innings. Martin will make his big-league debut in Game 2 against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday, but he's expected to head right back to the minors after the start.

  • Lucas Giolito To Start On Wednesday

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lucas Giolito has rejoined the team and will start on Wednesday against the Kansas City Royals after he's activated from the COVID-19 injured list. Giolito went on the injured list last Friday and shouldn't have any restrictions on his pitch count in his first start back in a good matchup against KC. The 27-year-old right-hander has been solid in his first five starts, allowing eight earned runs on 21 hits (five home runs allowed) while walking nine and striking out 37 in 26 2/3 innings. The strikeouts have been nice, but his 3.77 FIP points a bit of good luck in the early going. Regardless, most fantasy managers will want to get Giolito back in their starting lineups on Wednesday.

  • Liam Hendriks Shuts Door For 10th Save Monday

    Chicago White Sox closer Liam Hendriks earned his 10th save of the season in Monday's 5-3 extra-innings win over the Royals. Hendriks came in to pitch the 10th inning up by two with a ghost runner on second and delivered a 1-2-3 inning with three strikeouts. It was a strong rebound for him, who had allowed earned runs in each of his last two outings. Hendriks hasn't been as sharp as fantasy managers had hoped for with a 4.41 ERA and three blown saves this season, but he is getting saves and has 26 strikeouts through 16 1/3 IP. He remains a top fantasy closer given his track record.

  • Lucas Giolito Could Start Tuesday Or Wednesday

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lucas Giolito was sent to the COVID-19 injured list on Friday. Luckily for Giolito, it appears as if his time on the COVID-19 injured list will be short. White Sox manager Tony La Russa spoke to reporters on Monday and stated that there is hope that Giolito will return soon and that he will start either Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader or Wednesday's game. La Russa also said that he didn't want to go with a bullpen game in Game 2 Tuesday. Dylan Cease is slated to start Game 1 on Tuesday and Vince Velasquez is projected as Wednesday's starter. If Giolito isn't ready on Tuesday, Velasquez will likely be bumped up a day.

  • Johnny Cueto Called Up To Start Monday

    The Chicago White Sox purchased the contract of right-hander Johnny Cueto from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday and optioned infielder Danny Mendick to Charlotte in a corresponding move. Cueto is scheduled to start the series opener against the Kansas City Royals on Monday. The White Sox need some rotation help with Lance Lynn (knee) out until early June. The 36-year-old two-time All-Star didn't sign with the Pale Hose until April, so he needed some time in the minor leagues to get his arm stretched out. Cueto shouldn't be restricted from a pitch-count perspective, but he did have a 5.17 ERA and 1.21 WHIP while walking four and striking out 17 in 15 2/3 innings over four outings for Charlotte. Those in deep mixed and AL-only leagues might want to take a chance on Cueto, but don't expect too much.

  • Michael Kopech Takes First Loss Sunday

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Michael Kopech has been a revelation to start the season, but he could not avoid a loss on Sunday against the New York Yankees. Kopech allowed three runs on one hit and four walks in six innings while striking out three batters. It was his first quality start, and decision of any kind, this year. With a 1.54 ERA and 0.94 WHIP through seven starts, Kopech clearly deserves better than his 0-1 record. A 33-17 K-BB rate leaves plenty to be desired but Kopech has managed to strand plenty of those free passes on base, and it looks like a major breakout is developing.

  • Yoan Moncada To Rest On Sunday

    Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada (rest) is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the New York Yankees. This appears to be a routine day off for Moncada. The 26-year-old is 6-for-21 with a pair of homers since returning from the injured list. Josh Harrison will cover the hot corner and bat ninth versus lefty Nestor Cortes Jr. on Sunday. Fantasy managers should be able to find a better streaming option than Harrison.

  • Lance Lynn Close To Facing Live Hitters

    Chicago White Sox pitcher Lance Lynn (knee) Lynn is getting close to facing live hitters. According to White Sox manager Tony La Russa, he's a bullpen or two away from facing live hitters. The 35-year-old is on track to return to the mound in early June. He underwent knee surgery just before the started and is ahead of schedule in his recovery. Lynn posted a 2.69 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and a 176:45 K: BB across 157 innings in 2022. Fantasy managers should continue to stash the right-hander as, barring a setback will return to action soon.

  • Andrew Vaughn Reinstated, Lucas Giolito To COVID Injured List

    The Chicago White Sox activated outfielder Andrew Vaughn (hand) from the 10-day injured list on Friday. In a corresponding move, starting pitcher Lucas Giolito was placed on the COVID-19 injured list. Giolito reportedly began experiencing symptoms earlier this week and the expectation is that he will be able to return to the team at some point next week. Vaughn, meanwhile, had been out since late April due to a bruised right hand. He played in two rehab games at Triple-A and homered twice in the second of the two games. We expect him to be in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees.

    Chicago White Sox outfielder Andrew Vaughn (hand) had a big game at the plate in his second rehab game at Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday. He went 2-for-3 with two home runs, two walks and three runs scored in the game. Vaughn is eligible to return from the injured list any day now, and after Thursday's performance, we'd expect his return to be very soon. The 24-year-old has been on the shelf since late April due to a bruised hand. He was swinging the bat well prior to the injury, with four home runs and a .283/.367/.566 slash line over 16 games.

  • Dylan Cease Allows Six Runs Versus Yankees

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Dylan Cease wasn't his sharpest on Thursday, allowing six earned runs over four innings during his club's 15-7 loss to the Yankees. He did strike out 11 batters on the night, but the two walks and six hits, including two homers off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton, was enough to keep him from going out for the fifth inning. Luckily, his offense was able to bail him out for a no-decision to keep his record at 3-1, but he did see his ERA jump from 2.38 to 3.55 after this game. It's still been an impressive year for the 26-year-old who owns a 58/15 K/BB through 38 IP as he'll look to right the ship in his next start versus the Royals.

    Chicago White Sox second baseman Leury Garcia (ankle) is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against Luis Gil and the New York Yankees. He'll be batting ninth and covering the keystone in the game. Garcia was a late scratch from the lineup on Wednesday as he was dealing with ankle soreness. Josh Harrison covered second base for Wednesday's game and he is out of the lineup on Thursday. Garcia hasn't provided much offensive support for the White Sox this year. Over 22 games, he's slashing .186/.205/.314 with two home runs, six RBI and seven runs.

  • Andrew Vaughn Not Expected To Be Activated Thursday

    Chicago White Sox outfielder Andrew Vaughn (hand) is not expected to be activated from the injured list on Thursday in time for the game against the New York Yankees on the first day that he's eligible to return. Vaughn has been sidelined since May 2 due to a bruised hand, but he will get a few more minor league rehab at-bats with Triple-A Charlotte before rejoining the team this weekend. The 24-year-old right-handed hitter will return to being an everyday outfielder for the White Sox when he's eventually activated. Vaughn was slashing .283/.367/.566 with a .933 OPS, four home runs, 12 RBI and five runs scored in 16 games before landing on the injured list. If he's somehow available on your league's waiver wire, scoop him up now.

    Chicago White Sox outfielder Luis Robert has been red-hot at the plate so far in May. He's recorded at least one hit in each of his eight games this month while slashing .424/.486/.545. The 24-year-old currently has a .362 xBA on the year, which is the best in the majors among players with 90-plus plate appearances. He ranks in the 99th percentile in xwOBA (.452) and in the 98th percentile in xSLG (.689). To go along with those elite hitting metrics, he's also racked up six stolen bases over seven attempts on the year.

The White Sox haven't revealed their intentions for Vaughn's rehab assignment, but assuming he can avoid any setbacks, there's a chance we'll see him make his return by the end of the weekend, or early next week at the latest. The 24-year-old has slashed .283/.367/.566 with four home runs and 12 RBI over 16 games in the majors this year.

  • Eloy Jimenez Ahead Of Schedule?

    Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) said that he's coming along quicker than expected in his recovery from right hamstring surgery. Jimenez went under the knife in late April and was expected to miss six to eight weeks. There are still plenty of hurdles for the 25-year-old to clear before he's ready to return from the injured list, but it's good to hear that he's doing well. Even in a best-case scenario, Jimenez might not be back for fantasy managers until late June or early July, but we'll keep you updated as he progresses. Before his injury, he had gone only 8-for-36 with one home run and seven RBI in 11 games, but Jimenez has 30-plus home run power when fully healthy and should remain stashed in all fantasy leagues.

Right-hander Aaron Civale was scheduled to start for Cleveland on Wednesday, with right-hander Vince Velasquez opposing him for the White Sox. Fantasy managers need to remove any players from these two teams that they may have had in their starting lineups for the day.

    Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Cleveland Guardians. Moncada recently returned from an oblique injury that landed him on the injured list, and he's gone 2-for-8 with a walk and a run scored in his two games since returning. Josh Harrison will get the start at the hot corner for the series finale and is hitting ninth against Guardians right-hander Aaron Civale. Harrison doesn't have much fantasy upside as a low-cost DFS streamer anymore, especially while hitting at the bottom of Chicago's batting order. He has just nine hits in his first 57 at-bats this year, with no home runs and two RBI in 19 games.

    Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Kendall Graveman closed out the team's 4-1 victory over the Cleveland Guardians on Tuesday to earn his second save of the year. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning, but he did allow one hit and a walk before putting a cap on the night. The team's primary closer, Liam Hendriks, had pitched in three of the team's previous four games, so the Sox likely wanted to give him the day off on Tuesday. Graveman is now 2-for-3 in save opportunities on the year and he has a 1.76 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. He'd likely be the next man up for saves in Chicago if Hendriks were forced to miss time.

  • Tim Anderson's Suspension Reduced To A Fine

    Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson's one-game suspension for making an obscene gesture toward fans in a game in Cleveland on April 20 has been reduced to just a fine, according to a source familiar with the situation. Anderson appealed the league's suspension and won. He was suspended for the first three games this season after making contact with an umpire late last year, but Anderson also appealed that decision and had the suspension reduced to two games. The 28-year-old is hitting a cool .330 with four home runs, 10 RBI, 15 runs scored and four stolen bases in his first 24 games this year, and he's a must-star in fantasy anytime he's on the field. Fantasy managers won't have to worry about him sitting out a game this week at home against the Guardians.

  • Reynaldo Lopez Leaves With Back Tightness On Monday

    Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Reynaldo Lopez (back) was removed from Monday's game against the Cleveland Guardians after the 10th inning due to lower back tightness. Lopez pitched the full 10th inning and gave up one unearned run and showed no signs of an injury. He went out to the mound to warm up for the 11th inning and was taken out before the inning started, so the injury must have flared up during warm ups. Lopez has made 10 bullpen appearances so far this year and he's pitched to a 3.86 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. He's already been credited with four wins so far this year to go along with two holds.

  • Liam Hendriks Blows Save Monday

    Chicago White Sox closer Liam Hendriks blew his second save of the season in Monday's 12-9 extra-inning loss to the Guardians. Hendriks entered the game with two outs in the ninth inning, runners on first and second, and an 8-4 lead. He allowed a single to Owen Miller to load the bases and then gave up a game-tying grand slam to Josh Naylor before finally getting the final out on a groundout. Hendriks' final stat line was two earned runs allowed on two hits, no walks, and no strikeouts over 1/3 inning pitched. The 33-year-old has not been the fantasy option managers had bargained for to start the season, converting nine of 11 save opportunities but with a 4.61 ERA. Small sample sizes can inflate mistakes and the saves and strikeouts are coming, so fantasy managers shouldn't worry too much about Hendriks.

  • Lance Lynn Expected Back In Early June

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn (knee) is expected to make his 2022 debut in early June, according to White Sox general manager Rick Hahn. Lynn underwent knee surgery just before the season began and he has been rehabbing ever since. There had been some discussion of a late May return for the 34-year-old over the past few weeks, but that doesn't appear to be in the cards anymore. Lynn had a fantastic debut season with the Sox in 2021, going 11-6 with a 2.69 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. We'll likely see him sent out on a rehab assignment at some point in the next few weeks.

Vaughn has been out since April 29 due to a bruised right hand. He is first eligible to come off the 10-day injured list this coming Thursday. White Sox beat writer Daryl Van Schouwen stated that it may be a stretch to expect Vaughn to return when first eligible, suggesting that a brief rehab stint may be in store. Hahn withheld any timeline updates on Vaughn, but said that the team would see what the "next 48 hours brings."

  • Yoan Moncada, Joe Kelly Activated From Injured List

    Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada (oblique) and relief pitcher Joe Kelly (biceps) were activated from the injured list on Monday. Infielder Jake Burger was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte to make room for Moncada, while relief pitcher Aaron Bummer (knee) was placed on the injured list to make room for Kelly on the major league roster. Manager Tony La Russa said that Moncada would return to the two-hole in the lineup on Monday against Cleveland Guardians right-hander Zach Plesac. Moncada hit .318 with two home runs and a double on his six-game rehab assignment with Charlotte, and fantasy managers should be looking to get him back into their lineups. Kelly will be making his debut with the White Sox and is expected to be an important late-inning setup man in front of closer Liam Hendriks.

    Chicago White Sox manager Tony LaRussa reiterated Sunday that third baseman Yoan Moncada (oblique) should return to the team from the 10-day injured list on Monday and bat second in the lineup, per MLB.com's Scott Merkin. The 26-year-old has been sidelined for the first month of the 2022 season due to a strained right oblique. Moncada slashed .263/.375/.412 with 14 home runs, 61 RBI, 74 runs, and three stolen bases over 144 games in 2021, so he should be a useful fantasy option at a relatively shallow position once he returns.
