Fantasy Impact: Mazara missed the start of the year due to an undisclosed illness. The 25-year-old was acquired from the Rangers over the offseason and should play almost every day against right-handers.

Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease pitched well in a 9-2 win over the Royals on Sunday. Cease allowed two runs over six innings while striking out four.

Fantasy Impact: Cease improves his record to 1-1 with the win. The young hurler needed this one after he coughed up four runs in just 2 1/3 innings in his previous start. Cease will look to keep it going in his next start, which comes against Cleveland on Friday.

Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs, and an RBI in a 9-2 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Abreu's RBI single in the seventh inning brought Nick Madrigal around to score. Abreu is now hitting .282 with one homer, seven runs, and four RBI. The power numbers will come for the veteran slugger.

Fantasy Impact: Robert is off to a hot start for the White Sox and is apparently being rewarded with a bump in the lineup. It isn't clear if this is going to be a permanent switch going forward, but a move to the top of the lineup would be great for his fantasy value.

Chicago White Sox left-hander Gio Gonzalez tossed 3 2/3 scoreless innings in an 11-5 win over the Royals on Saturday. He struck out six and was able to work around five hits and three walks.

Fantasy Impact: Eight baserunners over 3 2/3 innings shows that Gonzalez's start wasn't as great as it appears at first glance but he was able to escape without allowing any runs. Gonzalez will take on the Brewers next time up.

Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez went 4-for-6 with a double, a homer, and four RBI in an 11-5 win over the Royals on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Jimenez ripped a three-run homer off Royals starter Ronald Bolanos in the first inning. Jimenez is off to a fast start, hitting .381 with two homers, three runs, and six RBI.

Chicago White Sox left-hander Dallas Keuchel allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings of work in a 3-2 win over the Royals on Friday. Keuchel struck out two and walked one.

Fantasy Impact: The win improves Keuchel's record to 2-0 on the year. The veteran hurler has been a solid addition to the Chicago rotation this season, with him posting a 3.38 ERA through two starts. He will face the Brewers next.

Alex Colome picks up save

Sat, Aug 1st 7:46am EDT
By Matthew Terelle

Chicago White Sox closer Alex Colome tossed a scoreless ninth to nail down a 3-2 win over the Royals on Friday. He struck out one in the outing.

Fantasy Impact: That goes down as Colome's first save of the season. The veteran reliever has yet to allow a run across three innings of work. He doesn't strike out as many batters as you would like to see, but Colome has a tight grip on the ninth-inning role in Chicago and could see a lot of save chances this season.

Chicago White Sox outfielder Adam Engel went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in a 3-2 win over the Royals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Engel's second-inning homer was all the offense the White Sox would need. The veteran is hitting .400 in 15 at-bats this season.

Yoan Moncada walks once

Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada went 0-for-3 with a walk in a 3-2 win over the Royals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Moncada is off to a solid start for the White Sox, hitting .292 with one homer, two runs, and four RBI. He will face off against Royals right-hander Ronald Bolanos on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Herrera was roughed up for four runs in two innings of relief the other night. This moves clears a 40-man roster spot for top prospect Nick Madrigal.

White Sox designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion is not in the lineup for the team's matchup against the Kansas City Royals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Through five games, Encarnacion is batting .105 with one home run, so maybe a day off will let him take a step back and come back fresh on Saturday. Yasmani Grandal is serving as the designated hitter and is batting cleanup Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Madrigal is one of the top prospects in baseball but was kept off the roster for the first week of the season so that the White Sox could gain an extra year of team control. Across all three levels of the minor leagues last season, Madrigal batted .311 with four home runs and 35 stolen bases across 120 games and 532 plate appearances.

Jimmy Lambert landed on the 10-day IL with a right forearm strain. (Source: Sun-Times Sports on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lambert had two relief appearances so far this year for the ChiSox, throwing two scoreless innings and striking out a pair. He was coming off Tommy John surgery entering this season so the team will likely play this extra cautious. He could be out for quite a while.

Chicago White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal went 0-for-3 with an RBI in a 4-0 win over Cleveland on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Grandal pushed a run across with a ninth-inning sacrifice fly. The veteran catcher is hitting .154 so far this season.

White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito was excellent in a 4-0 win over the Indians on Wednesday. Giolito tossed six shutout innings while striking out six.

Fantasy Impact: He had to settle for a no-decision as neither team scored until Chicago pushed four runs across in the ninth inning. More importantly, Giolito bounced back from a horrid Opening Day start against the Twins.

Chicago White Sox catcher James McCann went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in a 5-3 loss to the Indians on Tuesday.

Wed, Jul 29th 6:48am EDT
By Matthew Terelle

Chicago White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon allowed five runs in 3 2/3 innings in a 5-3 loss to Cleveland in the second game of a Tuesday doubleheader.

Fantasy Impact: Rodon struck out four and walked three. The veteran southpaw missed most of the 2019 season after Tommy John surgery. He will look for his first win of the season when he takes on the Brewers on Monday.
