Reds manager David Bell confirmed Tuesday that Jesse Winker (intercostal) is done for the remainder of the regular season. Winker lasted just one game this month before landing back on the IL with ongoing intercostal trouble. The 28-year-old first-time All-Star finishes with a .305/.394/.556 batting line, 24 home runs, 71 RBI, and 77 runs scored in 485 plate appearances. He'll be a very popular name in fantasy drafts next spring.
Chicago White Sox DFS Notes
White Sox manager Tony La Russa said Monday that Carlos Rodon (arm) is still expected to start Wednesday against the Reds. La Russa said Rodon's bullpen session on Sunday went "just OK" and that he didn't pitch at full intensity. Still, the White Sox are going to go ahead and have him pitch anyway. It's obviously incredibly risky from a fantasy perspective and it's hard to know what to expect from him as the White Sox prepare for the playoffs. Rodon felt some renewed soreness in his pitching arm during his most recent start last Monday.
