Fantasy Impact: Encarnacion is dealing with a right sore hip, but is expected to hit on Friday. He is on track to play Opening Day. Encarnacion dealt with multiple injuries and appeared in only 109 games last season, his lowest total since 2010. The 37-year old slashed .244/.344/.531 with 34 homers, 86 RBI and 81 runs scored across 486 plate appearances in 2019. He is currently 13th out of all first baseman in the consensus rankings.

Michael Kopech looked phenomenal in his Cactus League debut on Tuesday, tossing a perfect inning that included one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: This was Kopech's first game action since undergoing Tommy John surgery in September of 2018. The 23-year-old hit 101 mph with his fastball in this one. He is a high-upside fantasy selection come draft day.

Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease allowed three runs over three innings in a 3-3 Cactus League tie with the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Cease struck out three and walked three in the game. The young right-hander has plenty of upside in his arm but he continues to struggle with his control. Cease is expected to be part of Chicago's Opening Day rotation.

Chicago White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal went 2-for-3 with a homer and two runs in a 3-3 Cactus League tie with the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Grandal now has his first homer of the spring after missing a few weeks with a calf strain. The veteran is one of the better offensive catchers in the league and should have a big year hitting in the middle of the Chicago lineup.

Fantasy Impact: A hard-hit grounder bounce up and hit the young second baseman in the head. The good news is Madrigal was able to depart under his own power. The White Sox should update his status after the game.

Chicago White Sox catcher Zack Collins went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in a 6-5 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: As a rookie, Collins hit three homers in 86 at-bats in 2019. In the offseason, the White Sox signed All-Star Yasmani Grandal to be their starting catcher, so Collins is ticketed for a reserve role in 2020.

Alex Colome struggles

Sun, Mar 8th 10:56am EDT
By Matthew Terelle

Chicago White Sox closer Alex Colome struggled in a Cactus League outing against the Giants on Saturday. Colome allowed two runs in one inning and was charged with a blown save.

Fantasy Impact: Colome has had a rough spring, having allowed seven runs over three innings of work. The veteran is slated to open the year as the team's closer but it would be nice to see him turn in a few good outings this spring before Opening Day.

Chicago White Sox left-hander Dallas Keuchel allowed four runs over 3 2/3 innings of work against the Giants on Saturday. Keuchel struck out three and walked one in the start.

Fantasy Impact: Keuchel has allowed five runs over 7 2/3 innings of work in Cactus League action. The White Sox are counting on him to hold down the No. 2 spot in the rotation but his fantasy upside is limited.

Nomar Mazara goes yard

By Matthew Terelle

Chicago White Sox outfielder Nomar Mazara went 2-for-3 with a homer in a 7-6 win over the Rockies on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Mazara has his first spring homer with his new team. He is coming off a season where he hit 19 homers for the Rangers.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the White Sox and Yoan Moncada are in agreement on a five-year extension that includes a club option. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Extension season continues. The deal is reportedly worth $70 million in guaranteed money with the potential to increase to $90 million if the option is picked up. The contract would potentially buy out two of Moncada’s free agent years. He would hit the open market after his age-30 season. It’s yet another long-term deal the White Sox have gotten a young player to sign. Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert have made similar commitments within the past calendar year.

Chicago White Sox outfielder Luis Robert went 2-for-3 with a run and a steal in a 5-1 win over the Brewers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Robert now has three steals this spring, to go along with a .389 average. The top prospect should be a popular rookie in fantasy drafts this season.

Chicago White Sox right-hander Reynaldo Lopez allowed one run in three innings in a 6-5 loss to the A's on Tuesday. He struck out three and walked three.

Fantasy Impact: As was often the case last season, Lopez struggled with his control. He has plenty of upside but he will need to get his control issues worked out to become a consistent option in fantasy.

Chicago White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito (chest) is expected to make his Cactus League debut later this week, according to manager Rick Renteria.

Fantasy Impact: Giolito has been dealing with a strained chest muscle and soreness in his rib cage since camp opened. The 2019 breakout ace appears to be on the upswing as the calendar flips to March.

Andrew Vaughn hit a solo homer and drew a walk on Friday against the Indians.

Fantasy Impact: Vaughn, the third overall pick from the 2019 draft, hit .278/.384/.449 in 55 games at High-A last year. The 21-year-old possesses a lot of power with the ability to get on base at an above-average clip. He is strictly a first baseman, which limits his upside as a prospect, but this is a name to know for dynasty league players.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports the White Sox have signed Gio Gonzalez to a one-year contract. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez made 19 appearances in 2019, including 17 starts. He posted a 3.50 ERA with 78 strikeouts in 87 1/3 innings. We expect the veteran lefty to begin the 2020 season in Chicago's rotation.

The Chicago White Sox and first baseman Jose Abreu agreed to terms on a three-year, $50 million contract, the team announced on Friday. (Source: Chicago White Sox on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Abreu had already accepted the team's qualifying offer, so he was headed back to Chicago either way. This extension now keeps him with the White Sox for the next three years as they continue to rebuild. Last season, Abreu hit .284 with 85 runs scored, 33 home runs, 123 RBI, and two stolen bases.

Chicago White Sox left-hander Ross Detwiler allowed two runs in a 5-3 win over the Tigers in Sunday's season finale. Detwiler went 5 1/3 innings while striking out three.

Fantasy Impact: Detwiler finishes his season with a 3-5 record, 6.59 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 46 strikeouts in 69 2/3 innings of work.

Category: Game Recaps

Chicago White Sox DH Welington Castillo went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in a 5-3 win over the Tigers in Sunday's season finale.

Fantasy Impact: Castillo was one of the bigger free-agent disappointments this season. He finishes the year with a .209 average, 12 homers, 19 runs, and 41 RBI.

Category: Game Recaps

Chicago White Sox right-hander Ivan Nova pitched well in a 4-3 loss to the Tigers in the second game of a Saturday doubleheader.

Fantasy Impact: Nova allowed one run over five innings of work. He was one of the worst starters in the AL for the first few months of the season but was excellent in August. Nova finishes his 2019 campaign with an 11-12 record, 4.72 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 114 strikeouts in 187 innings of work.

Category: Game Recaps

Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in a 7-1 win over the Tigers in the first game of a Saturday doubleheader.

Fantasy Impact: Jimenez sat out of the nightcap. The young slugger broke out in a big way in 2019, hitting .267 with 31 homers, 68 runs, and 78 RBI.
