Chicago White Sox right-hander Ivan Nova struggled in a 9-7 loss to the Tigers on Thursday. Nova allowed six runs in 6 1/3 innings of work while picking up just three strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Nova was coming off his best start of the season but his outing on Thursday will erase all memories of that. Nova now has a 0-2 ERA, 6.23 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 14 strikeouts on the year. He has very little strikeout upside, which means he has to be excellent in the other categories to have fantasy value. So far that hasn't been the case, so leave him on waivers.

Luis Robert is among 20 minor league prospects within the White Sox organization to receive non-roster invitations to Spring Training. (Source: Daryl Van Schouwen )

Fantasy Impact: Robert is currently the 5th overall prospect in the organization and MLB’s 10th overall OF prospect. Injuries to his knee, ankle and thumb derailed his first two seasons in the minor league system. He has plus raw power and speed and has shown flashes of his all around tools. All of that tells you why the White Sox gave him the second most money ($26 million) ever for an amateur before international bonus payments where changed.
