Chicago White Sox Fantasy Spin
Tim Anderson went 3-for-3 with a double and a run scored as the White Sox were throttled by the Twins on Friday night. Anderson doubled and came around to score on an RBI single by Yonder Alonso during a four-run rally in the second inning, but that would be the extent of the White Sox' offense in the game. The 25-year-old just continues to produce phenomenal numbers across the board on offense, slashing .337/.369/.506 with eight homers, 25 RBI and 13 stolen bases.

He also drew a pair of walks in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3 with three runs scored. The 26-year-old is now hitting .250/.333/.857 with five homers and nine RBI in his first seven games.
