Fantasy Impact: Jimenez is hitting .289/.327/.467 over 45 at-bats on his minor league rehab assignment. The 24-year-old is primed to make a major impact for fantasy managers down the stretch. He needs to be rostered everywhere.

Jose Abreu went 1-for-3 on the day while also drawing a walk and striking out twice.

Fantasy Impact: Abreu is now hitting .256 on the year. He and the rest of the White Sox offense will hope to turn it around Sunday against Milwaukee.

Andrew Vaughn finished the day 2-for-4 with a double, his 21 of the year. Vaughn also scored the lone White Sox run.

Fantasy Impact: Vaughn is now hitting .258 on the year and was once again the only hitter to really show up for Chicago as Milwaukee's pitching continues to shut them down.

Carlos Rodon pitched just four innings on Saturday, striking out five while allowing four runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks.

Fantasy Impact: Fielding mishaps costed the White Sox, as a throwing error combined with a missed tag allowed runs to score in the fourth inning when it could've likely been avoided. Rodon's next start will come against Kansas City on Thursday.

Tim Anderson was held hitless in the White Sox loss on Friday. He struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson is now hitting .308 on the year after Friday's performance. It was an overall bad day for the team as a whole so he'll just hope to forget this and move on.

Lucas Giolito pitched six strong innings, allowing just one earned run on six hits and five walks while striking out three.

Fantasy Impact: Giolito continues to struggle with control but managed to escape several jams throughout the ball game. His ERA is now 3.78 and his next start will come against Kansas City next week.

Fantasy Impact: Mercedes wrote on his Instagram on Wednesday that he would be stepping away from baseball, but he's apparently had a change of heart. He is hitting well in Triple-A and could be back in the majors at some point this season.

Dylan Cease went five innings on Wednesday, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five. It marks his sixth loss of the year.

Fantasy Impact: Cease's ERA now blossoms to 4.21 which isn't awful considering he is a back-end guy for this White Sox rotation. In terms of fantasy though, it's hard to trust him although his strikeout numbers (132 over 102.2 innings) give him some value.

Yoan Moncada went 3-for-4 on the day including his 17th double and 8th homer of the year. Moncada would total two RBIs and a run scored on the day.

Fantasy Impact: Moncada boosts his average to .279 with the performance and will look to keep rolling as the White Sox close out the Twins on Wednesday.

Dallas Keuchel went five strong innings, allowing just two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out six batters.

Fantasy Impact: Keuchel was in line for the win but a blown save in the eight shut down those chances. Keuchel now has an ERA of 4.22 on the season with 64 strikeouts over 102.1 innings.

White Sox manager Tony La Russa says that Yasmani Grandal threw for distance and took some light swings on Tuesday. The catcher underwent surgery to address a torn tendon in his left knee two weeks ago. (Source: Daryl Van Schouwen on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: At a minimum, Grandal is on time in his recovery. However, La Russa hinted that he might even be ahead of schedule "because we thought he'd be limping and he doesn't limp." The 32-year-old All-Star was slashing an impressive .188/.388/.436 with 14 homers, 38 RBI, 60 walks, and 64 strikeouts prior to going down with his injury.

Lance Lynn allowed just one earned run on five hits and one walk across his seven innings of work. He also managed to strike out four batters.

Fantasy Impact: The lone run Lynn gave up was off a home run, but unfortunately the White Sox offense wasn't able to provide any run support in this one. Lynn now lowers his ERA to an impressive 1.94 and is a leading candidate for the Cy Young in the AL.

Fantasy Impact: There was some speculation that Robert could miss the rest of the season when he initially suffered the injury, so this is great news. Chicago should also be getting back Eloy Jimenez sooner rather than later, so things are looking up for the White Sox.

Liam Hendricks struck out two batters of the three batters he faced in his first inning since the all-star break while locking down the win for the White Sox on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: While it wasn't a save opportunity, Hendricks performed well and lowered his ERA to 2.68 on the year and should be owned everywhere due to how many save opportunities he will get in Chicago.

Zack Collins went just 1-for-3 on the day, but his sole hit was a solo home run that opened the scoring in the third inning. Collins would also draw a walk and strikeout twice in the ball game.

Fantasy Impact: Collins is now hitting .227 on the season and while he's shown the ability to hit for power, he shouldn't be near fantasy lineups.

Jake Burger went 2-for-4 on the day, including his first career home run as well as his third double. He totalled two RBIs and two runs scored on the day.

Fantasy Impact: Burger is now hitting .400 on the season and could continue seeing at-bats with C Yasmani Grandal out with injury.

Category: Game Recaps

Gavin Sheets went 2-for-3 on the day, highlighted by a huge two-run home run in the fifth inning. He also hit a double and scored another run in the ball game.

Fantasy Impact: Sheets is now hitting .244 on the season, but has shown tremendous power in just 45 at-bats with 4 home runs and 11 RBIs. Sheets should remain somewhat valuable as long as teammate Eloy Jimenez is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Impact: Lopez struggled in Triple-A and is transitioning to a bullpen role in Chicago for now.

Adam Engel went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and three RBI in Sunday's extra-inning victory over the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: After hitting a three-run shot Friday evening, Engel replicated the same result in the tenth inning Sunday to give Chicago the lead and eventual win. Engel had two home runs and seven RBI during the weekend series in Baltimore.
