White Sox's Daniel Palka: Day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palka is not starting Saturday against the Tigers.

Palka has gone hitless in seven of his last nine games. He's shown power this season, slugging .475 with six homers in 149 plate appearances, though his plate discipline has been poor, as he's striking out 30.2 percent of the time while walking just 5.4 percent of the time, leading to an ugly .289 on-base percentage. Trayce Thompson will start in right field Saturday.

White Sox's Daniel Palka: Smacks two doubles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palka went 2-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Sunday's win over Boston.

Palka provided key insurance runs in the top of the ninth inning by smashing a two-RBI double to push the lead to three. Prior to Sunday's tilt, he'd gone 0-for-10 with eight strikeouts over his last three games. Palka is batting .287 with six homers and 22 RBI over 33 games this season.

White Sox's Daniel Palka: Hits bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palka is out of the lineup Sunday against the Brewers.

The lefty-hitting Palka was surprisingly held out of the lineup against Brewers righty Jhoulys Chacin a day earlier, but the outfielder's absence from the lineup in the series finale isn't unexpected with southpaw Brent Suter on the bump for Milwaukee. Despite the back-to-back benchings, Palka still looks like the White Sox's primary option in right field until Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is cleared to return from the disabled list.

White Sox's Daniel Palka: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White Sox's Daniel Palka: Needs work in field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palka started at designated hitter and went 1-for-2 with two walks, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 8-3 win over the Brewers.

Palka has been getting regular playing time as right fielder Avisail Garcia (hamstring) and designated hitter Matt Davidson (back) work their way back from the disabled list. He's getting time as a replacement for each player, but we're quickly learning he's a better hitter than a fielder, which may limit him to DH duties if he sticks around when those two players return. He has an .849 OPS over 108 plate appearances, however, his deficiency in the field surfaced at a couple of pivotal moments over the last week, reinforcing the notion he needs to work on defense. Palka ranks 46th out of 48 right fielders (minimum 100 innings) with minus-7 defensive-runs saved, according to Fangraphs.
