Chicago White Sox Roster
- AL Central
- Guaranteed Rate Field
Chicago White Sox outfielders Luis Robert and Eloy Jimenez are both not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Texas Rangers. The White Sox will instead send Gavin Sheets, Leury Garcia, and Romy Gonzalez onto the outfield grass. Robert has been smashing the ball, slashing .467/.500/.733 over his last seven games, but Jimenez has not had as much success with a .172/.200/.241 line in the same span. Fantasy managers can expect each to return for Chicago's next game, which comes Monday against the division-rival Detroit Tigers, though the White Sox may continue to rest starters frequently with a playoff spot safely in the cards.
Chicago White Sox second baseman is on the bench for Saturday's matchup with the Texas Rangers. The White Sox will take on right-handed starter Spencer Howard but will do so without Hernandez in the lineup. The veteran is hitting .228 with a .304 on-base percentage, 21 home runs, and a stolen base in 596 plate appearances this season. Chicago will instead start Romy Gonzalez at second base on Saturday. Gonzalez, who is batting ninth against the Rangers, is hitting .292 with a .320 on-base percentage in 25 plate appearances this season. Fantasy managers are probably better off looking elsewhere for streaming help.
Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson isn't starting on Saturday against the Texas Rangers and right-hander Spencer Howard. Anderson is batting .300 with a .329 on-base percentage, 14 home runs, and 17 stolen bases in 498 plate appearances this season. Leury Garcia is hitting seventh and starting in place of Anderson at shortstop on Saturday. The 30-year-old is hitting .262 with a .333 on-base percentage, five home runs, and six stolen bases in 415 plate appearances this season. You're probably better off looking elsewhere for streaming help.
Chicago White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal isn't in Thursday's lineup against the Los Angeles Angels and right-hander Alex Cobb. Grandal has been one of fantasy baseball's most productive catchers when healthy this season, especially in leagues where on-base percentage is part of the scoring. The veteran is batting .237 with a .416 on-base percentage and 20 home runs in 311 plate appearances. Zack Collins will start in Grandal's place at catcher and bat eighth against the Angels. You're probably better off looking elsewhere for streaming help. Collins is batting .202 with a .324 on-base percentage, four home runs, and a stolen base in 211 plate appearances this season.
Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada isn't starting on Thursday. The White Sox will take on the Los Angeles Angels and right-hander Alex Cobb but will do so with one of their best hitters in Moncada on the bench. The 26-year-old is batting .269 with a .380 on-base percentage, 12 home runs, and three stolen bases in 552 plate appearances this season. Romy Gonzalez will move into the lineup at third base and hit seventh on Thursday. Gonzalez has three hits so far in 16 plate appearances for the White Sox this season. Fantasy managers are probably best off looking elsewhere for streaming help.
