Latest News
Marcus Semien could soon factor in Fantasy
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/22/14) By trading Gordon Beckham to the Angels Thursday, the White Sox created a big hole up the middle that, for now at least, they'll attempt to fill with some combination of Carlos Sanchez and Leury Garcia. But neither figures to make as much of an impact long-term as Marcus Semien, who Fantasy owners may remember for the splash he made back in April and May filling in for an injured Beckham and then an injured Conor Gillaspie.

His final numbers didn't look so hot, but he showed his potential with a couple nice weeks. When the White Sox finally shipped him to Triple-A Charlotte, he slumped so badly that he fell off the radar for a while, but he's rebounded in July and August, batting .288 (51 for 177) with six homers and 14 doubles. Most encouraging is his exceptional on-base percentage during that time thanks to a 35-to-30 strikeout to walk ratio. His plate discipline put him on the map as a prospect last year but hasn't been as evident during his time in the big leagues so far.

So why isn't he up yet? Good question, but MLB.com has reported he will be when rosters expand in September. My guess is he gets most of the at-bats then, and with an Ian Kinsler-like combination of power and speed, I could see him making an impact in Fantasy.

Marcus Semien continues to work in outfield at Triple-A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/14) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien continues to get work in the outfield following his demotion to Triple-A Charlotte in early June, per MLB.com.

"He's going to really dictate how comfortable he is and how we see how comfortable he becomes," White Sox assistant general manager Buddy Bell said of Semien. "He's going to be fine. If you bring him up now, we could put him out there. I don't think you want to put him out there every day by any means, but I think he's capable of making all the plays. He's capable of keeping the ball in front of him.

"Whether that means he's got to play a little deeper than most -- but I think he's more than capable. Part of the problem is he's dealing with the fence, balls over his head and things like that that he never had to deal with before."

Marcus Semien optioned to Triple-A
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/1/14) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien has been optioned to Triple-A Sunday.

Semien had his moments with the club, but was hitting just .222 over 162 at-bats. With Gordon Beckham performing well since his return, Semien was no longer needed on the major-league roster. 

Marcus Semien smacks key double in extra-innings win Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/14) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien went 2 for 5 with an RBI double in the 12th inning to break a 1-1 tie in his team's 3-1 win over the Cubs Monday.

Semien entered the game 0 for 11 in his last three appearances and without driving in a run in his last four games, but he posted a solid performance in what was a difficult day for White Sox batters, who had six hits in all in the 12-inning game. He owns a .220/.275/.356 line with three home runs and 16 RBI in 132 at-bats.

Hitters to sit in Week 6
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/2/14) What do A.J. Pierzynski, Adam LaRoche, Brandon Phillips, Marcus Semien, Everth Cabrera and Brett Gardner have in common? They're all "sits" for Fantasy Week 6 (May 5-11). Billy Butler didn't qalify for the list as a DH-only player, but he's not so advisable either with the Royals playing three games at San Diego to open the week.

Of course, whether or not you can actually sit them depends on your league type and the alternatives available to you. For the reasons why you might sit them and a list of possible replacements, check out Start and Sit Hitters for Week 6.
