Alex Rios tied a White Sox and an American League record with six hits in a nine-inning game and the White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 11-4. Rios singled in the first, tripled in the third and also singled twice in the eighth inning. He also singled in the fifth and ninth innings. If that was not enough, Rios also stole two bases. Rios has been rumored to be on the trading block, and Tuesday's game certainly will boost his trade value. The two stolen bases give him 19 on the year and he is batting .281. Rios has always been an interesting player to own in fantasy. He upside is through the roof, but do you have the patience that is required to own him when he has the extended slumps? He reminds me alot of Jay Bruce. The highs are really high and the lows are painful.
