Latest Update Alejandro De Aza is not in the White Sox starting lineup Thursday. Thu Jul, 10, 12:46 PM
Has great speed, which he uses effectively on the base-paths and in the outfield. Is adept at slapping the ball all over the field. Can steal bags and set the table effectively. Can play all three outfield positions.
Flaws: : Doesn't have a good-enough batting eye or enough patience to become an elite table-setter. Has trouble staying away from the infirmary. Also needs to improve his production against left-handed pitching.
De Aza is just 2-for-48 (.042) against left-handers this year, so he'll take a seat with Jonn Lester on the mound for Boston on Thursday. Dayan Viciedo will move over to left field with Moises Sierra in right.Analyst: Howard Bender
Manager Robin Ventura is pulling as many lefties from his staring lineup as he can with Mark Buehrle on the hill for the Blue Jays Sunday. Moises Sierra will replace him in right field.Analyst: Howard Bender
Despite a solid effort on Friday, De Aza just isn't getting enough playing time to make him a fantasy consideration. He is now sporting a .184 average with five home runs and 18 RBI, which he will need to improve upon in his inconsistent playing time. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With lefty Jason Vargas on the hill for the Royals, manager Robin Ventura wants to stack the lineup with as many right-handed hitters he can. Lefty Adam Eaton remains in center, but Dayan Viciedo and Moises Sierra will be in the corners for Monday's game.Analyst: Howard Bender
