At this point in the season having to go back to the waiver wire every week to replace an injury gets old, but it’s a necessary evil. It’s kind of like carpooling to work everyday with a dude who thinks “listening to the radio” means playing Darude’s Sandstorm on repeat. Your ride is in the shop, so you’re stuck with this clown for a while. We’re here to help you pick out some of the better options that may still be available on your wire so that the pain is a little more tolerable.The following prices can be used as a guide for making free agent bids and assumes a 12-team mixed league with standard scoring and $100 FAAB. All players listed are available in at least 50% of ESPN leagues. Eric Young Jr., OF - This isn’t the first time he’s appeared on this list and it probably won’t be the last, as a lot of his value is tied to his playing time. With Michael Cuddyer headed to the DL, the Rockies have slotted Young as their starting right fielder and leadoff hitter for the time being. Given his ability to hit for average and wreak havoc on the basepaths, I’d pick him up. $5Jon Jay, OF - After a cold start to the season, Jay has started to heat up at the plate. He is currently riding a nine-game hitting streak, five of which have been multi-hit efforts. He could find his way back to the top of the Cardinals lineup, and if that happens, he won’t be available in 70% of leagues for very long. $5Dayan Viciedo, OF - Viciedo recently came off of the disabled list from an oblique injury, and he’s probably buried on your waiver wire if his owner couldn’t stash him. While he won’t provide much help with his batting average, and he could lose some at-bats due to his poor defense, he has great power potential and 20 homers are still possible from this point forward. $3Andy Dirks, OF - Dirks has just enough pop and speed to contribute to your fantasy lineup. He'll see the majority of his starts against right handed pitchers. Double digit homers and steals aren’t out of the question, and you can grab him for a song right now, unless that song is Sandstorm. $1Brandon McCarthy, SP - We had McCarthy pegged as a sleeper coming into the 2013 season, but things got off to a shaky start, and those who drafted him as a late round starter probably cut ties about a week ago. He has started to right the ship, however, and in his most recent outing against the Phillies he went 8 strong innings. His .377 BABIP and 4.13 FIP suggest he may have been a little unlucky over the first month of the season, so there could be a rebound in the works here. Just be conscious of the fact that while he’s in the NL now, he’s also no longer in the pitching-friendly Oakland Coliseum. $3Jorge De La Rosa, SP - De La Rosa is coming off two great starts in which he allowed no earned runs to both the Yankees at home in Colorado and on the road against the Cardinals. These weren’t shabby offenses he was handling. De La Rosa is inducing groundballs at a rate of 46%, which will come in handy since he pitches half of his games at Coors. The strikeouts seemed to be back as well in his most recent start against the Cardinals with 7 K in 7 IP. He could prove to be a sneaky value if you pick his home matchups carefully. $2Mike ButtilFollow Mike on Twitter @mbuttil643

Chicago White Sox Activate Dayan Viciedo, Option Jordan Danks

The Chicago White Sox have activated outfielder Dayan Viciedo from the 15-day disabled list which he has recovered from after suffering a left oblique strain three weeks back.

How Close Jeff Keppinger Has Come

Give this to Jeff Keppinger: he’s a long way from history. Keppinger, to date, has started 29 games for the White Sox, and he’s still searching for his first base on balls. That’s a long streak to start a season, but it’s far from the longest streak. Two years ago, Brent Morel of the same White Sox didn’t draw his first walk until start 33. In 2009, John McDonald went 35...

Chicago White Sox: Sale almost perfect on Mother’s Day.

There aren’t many seasons where Chicago White Sox fans say they can look forward to a series against the Angels. However, the Angels have been having many of the same problems as the Sox this year. With an offense as stacked as they have (Hamilton, Trout, AND Pujols), it’s hard to believe that this is the case. That being said, the White Sox did a pretty good job of making the...

Putting Dunn & Keppinger's Pathetic Starts in Context

Slow starts to the season are nothing new for the White Sox. The Palehose have played sub-.500 baseball each year since 2008 through 35 games (which is where we are at right now), which has resulted in only one playoff appearance in that time frame. The starts individual players have had tell the story, as since the turn of the century, there have been 21...

White Sox have had Twins number of late in Minnesota

Even in winning, Chicago's most recent contest was a microcosm of the young season, as its struggling offense continues to have a difficult time providing run support for a solid pitching staff. Hector Santiago may be the newest member of the starting rotation, but even he isn't immune to that fact. Chicago begins a seven-game road trip as Santiago faces former White Sox...

Chicago White Sox need fixing now, future

The Chicago White Sox appear to be in need of some tweaking. Pitching injuries, inconsistent offensive production, and mediocre defense has earned them a spot in the American League Central basement.  As if a bad Chicago Cubs team was not enough to worry about…  Second year manager Robin Ventura has had his hands tied, to say the least. Key players such as Paul Konerko, Alexei...
