Chicago White Sox DFS Notes

José Abreu walloped his 20th home run of the season on Thursday in the White Sox' loss to the Royals. Abreu put the White Sox on the scoreboard with a no-doubter to left-center field off rookie southpaw Daniel Lynch in the opening frame. He also singled in the sixth inning to cap off the multi-hit effort. The 34-year-old veteran first baseman is hitting .245/.333/.461 with 53 runs scored, 20 homers, 82 RBI and one steal across 435 plate appearances.

Chicago Cubs DFS Notes

Rafael Ortega went 2-for-4 with a walk and a steal against the Rockies on Thursday. The Cubs have gotten terrific production from a couple of former quad-A players in Ortega and Patrick Wisdom. We wouldn't expect Ortega to keep it up offensively, but since he is leading off and running at will, he could remain a factor in mixed leagues.
