by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

White Sox LF situation will be merit-based decision


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said playing time in left field between Alejandro De Aza and Dayan Viciedo will be merit-based and not because a righty or lefty is on the mound.

"[Manager] Robin [Ventura] is going to fill out the lineup card with options that give him the best chance to win on a given day," Hahn told MLB.com concerning the De Aza/Viciedo split. "Conceivably it breaks down into a straight left-right platoon, but I don't think it's going to be just that simplistic.

"Sometimes the defense is going to factor into it. Sometimes the player's individual history against a pitcher is going to factor into it, as well as physical or clubhouse issues that the world is not privy to could impact who is in the lineup on a given day."


Alejandro De Aza has 'more chances to drive in runs'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) With Adam Eaton now on the roster, White Sox manager Robin Ventura had to find a new spot in the batting order for Alejandro De Aza, who hit leadoff in 146 games last season.

De Aza hit seventh in Monday's opener against the Twins after batting .383 with a .596 slugging percentage, .996 OPS, two home runs, four doubles and six RBI in 15 spring games.

"He'll have more chances to drive in runs that you just don't get as a leadoff hitter," Ventura said, per the Chicago Daily Herald. "He has some pop, too. He had 17 homers so I don't see this as a demotion as much as giving him more opportunities where he's at. I mean, Adam (Dunn) where he's at, he's where he belongs, too."

Alejandro De Aza emerges as top 30 Fantasy OF


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2013) White Sox outfielder Alejandro De Aza has been putting up some monster numbers lately. He is batting .422 (19 for 45) with a .689 slugging percentage in his last 11 games and is averaging 19.6 Fantasy points (standard formats) in his last seven scoring periods. 

De Aza's surge has put him among the top 30 Fantasy scoring outfielders, which is where he could finish the year. You might not realize, but De Aza was the 42nd-best scoring outfielder in 2012 and he did that with less power. He already has a career-high 12 home runs and has plenty of time to improve on his numbers. 

It might be a little tough for De Aza to continue to average 19.6 Fantasy points per week, but in leagues where you start three outfielders, De Aza is certainly worth a regular spot in your lineup.
