    • White Sox's Alen Hanson: Doubles twice Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hanson went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Rays. Hanson has been getting at-bats at second base with Yoan Moncada (leg) on the 10-day disabled list. Additionally, Tyler Saladino (wrist) was scratched Sunday, which removed another obstacle for Hanson. He has two doubles and two home runs while hitting .350 (7-for-20) over the last five games, but Hanson has shown no evidence that he can sustain such a level of hitting proficiency over long stretches.

    • White Sox's Alen Hanson: Homers in Thursday's loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hanson started at second base and went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 5-4 loss to Minnesota. The White Sox, who have traded several veteran hitters and are bereft of top-end position talent in the high minors, are struggling to put together a lineup of legitimate MLB hitters as the season closes. Now, with injuries to Nicky Delmonico (wrist) and Yoan Moncada (leg), Hanson's versatility is getting him in the lineup regularly -- he's started seven of the last 10 games. He could get between four and six starts per week given the current state of the roster. The opportunities will be there, but whether he hits enough to warrant a spot on a fantasy starting roster is another matter.

    • Hanson went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Indians. Hanson started in right field for the third time in the last four games. Manager Rick Renteria has used both Hanson and Willy Garcia to replace injured right fielder Avisail Garcia (thumb, 10-day disabled list). Early on, Hanson has been favored member of the platoon, going 6-for-11 with a home run and two RBI over the last four games.

    • Hanson started in right field Wednesday in place of the injured Avisail Garcia (thumb). He went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two RBI in an 8-3 loss to the Cubs. Hanson should get a healthy dose of at-bats while Garcia is sidelined but as a .217 hitter, fantasy owners should not expect to discover a hidden gem.

    • Hanson will occupy the leadoff spot and man center field Wednesday against the Dodgers. Adam Engel has taken on the larger portion of the timeshare in center field while Leury Garcia (finger) has been sidelined, but Hanson will join the lineup to provide a left-handed option against Dodgers righty Kenta Maeda. Since joining the White Sox after being claimed off waivers from the Pirates in late May, Hanson has gone 12-for-50 (.240 average) with a home run and two steals.
