Other Helpful Fantasy Info

  • Park Factor: In terms of 2019 run-scoring, Guaranteed Rate Field fared a tad below average with a 0.972 park factor. However, it played favorably (1.124) to home runs. It played better for righties than lefties in both facets.
  • Green Light Rating: Medium. The White Sox ranked 20th in stolen bases (63) last season but seventh in the 2018 campaign under manager Rick Renteria. Anderson, Moncada, and Garcia have received enough of a green light to reach double-digit steals each time. That same courtesy should extend to Robert and Madrigal.
  • Likeliest 2020 roster moves: It’s only a matter of time before Madrigal and Kopech reach the majors. Both are worth stashing in the closing rounds of any mixed league. Madrigal, who struck out 16 times and stole 35 bases in the minors last season, should provide speed and a high batting average immediately. Kopech is a flame-thrower with sky-high strikeout potential.
  • Bold Fantasy Prediction: Eloy Jimenez leads the majors in home runs.
  • Bland Fantasy Prediction: The White Sox have a top-10 fantasy hitter at every position.
