Player Outlook
Korey Lee was traded from the Astros to the White Sox at the 2023 trade deadline and played in 24 games down the stretch for Chicago. The 25-year-old struggled to get anything going offensively with a .077/.143/.138 slash line and 28.6 percent strikeout rate in 70 plate appearances, though he looked solid behind the plate. He had a .711 OPS in 82 games at Triple-A last season, and he hit just five homers compared to the 25 he slugged in 2022. Depending on the White Sox's offseason additions, Lee should have a chance to earn the start Opening Day in 2024, though he'd be a risky play for fantasy managers. As it stands, Carlos Perez and Max Stassi are his main competition.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Three-hit effort Tuesday

    Lee went 3-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Mariners. Lee sat out games Saturday and Sunday after beginning June 2-for-22, but he's responded well since the White Sox landed in Seattle. He's 4-for-8 over the first two games of the series versus the Mariners. Lee is up to a .258/.291/.391 slash line with five steals, five home runs, 16 RBI and 14 runs scored across 158 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Swipes fourth bag

    Lee went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base Friday against the Brewers. Lee extended his hitting streak to a modest four games, though he now has both a home run and a steal in that span. He's maintained a solid .273 average and .728 OPS across 127 plate appearances for the season. While he continues to split time with Martin Maldonado behind the plate, Lee has notably started the last two games at DH, giving him starts in 10 of the team's last 13 games.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Pops fifth homer

    Lee went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Blue Jays. Lee took Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano deep in the ninth inning, but the White Sox couldn't build off his big hit. The catcher opened May going 12-for-29 over eight games, then cooled off by going 7-for-36 (.194) over his last 12 contests. He's at a .274/.309/.427 slash line with five homers, 12 RBI, 11 runs scored, three stolen bases and three doubles over 123 plate appearances on the year. Lee still has an edge for playing time over the light-hitting Martin Maldonado.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Not starting Monday

    Lee is absent from the lineup for Monday's contest against the Blue Jays. Lee has wrestled the starting catcher job for the White Sox away from Martin Maldonado, but he's really struggled lately in going 4-for-27 with 14 strikeouts. Maldonado will do the catching for Nick Nastrini on Monday.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Heads to bench Saturday

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Tallies third stolen base

    Lee went 1-for-3 with an RBI, a walk and a stolen base Monday against the Blue Jays. Lee has had a poor start to the White Sox's current road trip, as he's struck out eight times across 13 plate appearances. However, he's been surprisingly aggressive when he's reached base, attempting three stolen bases across in his last five contests and succeeding twice. Lee has slowly taken over the primary catcher role, though he still alternates time behind the dish with Martin Maldonado.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Idle for nightcap

    Lee isn't in the White Sox's lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus Washington. Lee went 1-for-4 with a strikeout during a loss in Game 1, and he'll get a breather while Martin Maldonado starts behind the dish to conclude Tuesday's activities.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Keeps flashing power

    Lee went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored Friday against the Guardians. Lee took Carlos Carrasco deep in the seventh inning to tally his fourth home run of the season, three of which have come in his last 11 games. He's gone 11-for-33 in that span, also chipping in five RBI and four runs scored. Lee remains in a near even split for playing time with Martin Maldonado behind the plate.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Resting Wednesday

    Lee is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays. He'll bow out of the starting nine for the series finale in what amounts to a maintenance day after he worked behind the plate both of the previous two days. Martin Maldonado will replace Lee as the White Sox's starting catcher.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Getting rest Sunday

    Lee is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Lee will hit the bench for the series finale after he caught all 10 innings of Saturday's 6-5 win while going 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI. Martin Maldonado will draw the nod behind the plate Sunday.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Swats third homer

    Lee went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Twins. Lee took Brock Stewart yard in the seventh inning for his third home run of the season, two of which have come in his last seven starts. He is in a nearly exactly even split for playing time behind the dish, as he's been in the lineup eight times in the White Sox's last 14 games. Overall, Lee has a 111 wRC+ and .328 wOBA across 58 plate appearances this season, and he could continue to slowly take playing time from Martin Maldonado if his strong performance continues.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Back in action Sunday

    Lee will start at catcher and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Rays. Lee was on the bench for both of the White Sox's previous two games while Martin Maldonado handled the catching duties. After Maldonado ended his stretch of wretched production at the plate by blasting a three-run home run and adding a single in Friday's 9-4 win, he was rewarded with another start in Saturday's 8-7 extra-inning win but went 0-for-2 with a walk. Maldonado is now holding down a lowly .304 OPS on the season -- well below Lee's .774 OPS in 47 plate appearances -- so expect the non-contending White Sox to lean on the younger and better-performing Lee as their preferred option behind the dish.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Clubs solo homer

    Lee went 1-for-2 with a solo home run during Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Twins. Lee reached safely in two of his three plate appearances Wednesday, tagging Joe Ryan for a solo home run in the third inning and working a walk in the fifth. He stole second after the free pass, marking his first-career steal in the big leagues. After batting .077 and .160 over small samples in 2023 and 2022, respectively, Lee is off to a much better start to 2024, slashing .256/.310/.462 with five RBI and five runs scored.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Finding more playing time

    Lee went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Wednesday against the Guardians. The stat line wasn't notable for Lee, but he has now started three straight games for the White Sox after being in the lineup just twice in the team's first nine contests. One of those starts came at designated hitter, with two behind the plate. Mounting injuries to the White Sox's lineup could mean that Lee continues to get playing time, though both Eloy Jimenez (thigh) and Max Stassi (hip) are nearing potential returns.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Returns from Triple-A

    The White Sox recalled Lee from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday. Lee was just optioned last week but is back to take the injured Max Stassi's (hip) spot on the roster. The 25-year-old will serve as Martin Maldonado's backup behind the plate to begin the season.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Sits amid slump

    Lee is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times. Lee did not record a hit over his last five games and owns just a .270 OPS at the big-league level this season, so he will get a day to clear his head after starting three of Chicago's last four contests. Yasmani Grandal will replace Lee behind the dish.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Takes seat Sunday

    Lee is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers. Yasmani Grandal will start at catcher and bat fifth for the visiting White Sox. Lee, 25, has slashed just .118/.211/.206 through his first 38 plate appearances with Chicago.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Heads to bench Sunday

    Lee is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics. Lee will take a seat for the series finale after he started behind the plate in each of the past three games following his promotion from Triple-A Charlotte while going 1-for-10 with two walks a run. Though he'll give way to Yasmani Grandal on Sunday, Lee looks as though he's going to get a look as the White Sox's primary catcher down the stretch, at least until Seby Zavala (oblique) returns from the 10-day injured list.
