2017 RECAP

Record: 7 - 9

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Of course, the biggest highlight on the south side of Chicago was Jose Abreu. The Cuban import exceeded all Expectations by hitting .317 with 36 homers and 107 RBIs. In any other year, Chris Sale would have been the headliner. The southpaw proved all doubters wrong by striking out 207 in just 174 innings and posting a 2.17 ERA and 0.97 WHIP along the way.

What Has Changed?

A ton has changed for the Pale Hose. David Robertson is now the closer, Adam LaRoche takes the place of retired Paul Konerko, Melky Cabrera arrives to man LF (Adam Dunn retired), Emilio Bonifacio arrives to play 2B and Jeff Samardzija returns to Chicago (albeit south of his old home at Wrigley) to bolster the rotation.

What to Expect:

Expect the White Sox to be very good. With Sale, Samardzija and Jose Quintana atop the rotation, their pitching will be better than it has been for years. On offense, the addition of LaRoche and Melky, as well as the return to health of Avisail Garcia and Adam Eaton will mean that Jose Abreu will not need to carry the team by himself as he often needed to do a year ago.

This Year’s Surprise:

Micah Johnson forces the White Sox hand and pushes Bonifacio back to his more natural role of utility man. Johnson, who stole 83 bases in the minors in 2013, will be on many a winning fantasy team as he provides a bevy of steals in a league where that commodity is continuing to dwindle. While there was some facial regression in 2014, Johnson’s contact rate actually increased as he went from Double to Triple-A and his K-rate actually decreased when he went to the next level. At just 24 he may not hit a ton in 2015 but he will run when he gets installed into the lineup and will score runs in that lineup.
