Description: Former Chicago White Sox starter, Dylan Axelrod, has pitched well in two spot starts for Cincinnati.
Insight: Axelrod got the win Thursday, going five innings and striking out eight while yielding just two hits and no runs. He also started a game on Aug. 17 going six innings and giving up two earned runs, but striking out seven. The high strikeout total should interest fantasy owners (15 Ks in 11 IP).

Description: White Sox starter Dylan Axelrod has allowed 28 hits and 14 earned runs in 14 2/3 innings over his last three starts.
Insight: Axelrod had his ERA down to 3.73 after his start on June 5, but he's now 3-4 with a 4.57 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP this season and can be dropped in all leagues.

Description: White Sox starter Dylan Axelrod took a tough-luck loss Saturday against the Royals despite allowing just two runs in 7 2/3 innings.
Insight: Axelrod (0-2, 3.60 ERA, 1.23 WHIP) allowed eight hits and didn't strike out a batter. His fantasy appeal is limited to AL-only leagues due to his lack of strikeouts, but he has been a solid arm at the back end of an injury-riddled White Sox rotation.

Description: White Sox starter Dylan Axelrod was solid in his 2013 debut, going 5 2/3 innings and allowing one run on three hits to the Mariners in a no decision.
Insight: Axelrod had a 5.47 ERA in 51 big league innings last season but he has posted a 2.58 ERA in 188 1/3 innings at Triple-A over the last two seasons. He also had a strong spring. He'll serve as the fifth starter until John Danks returns to action.

Description: Dylan Axelrod will serve as the fifth starter for the Chicago White Sox until John Danks returns. Hector Santiago will pitch out of the bullpen.
Insight: Axelrod had a 5.47 ERA in 51 big league innings last season but he has posted a 2.58 ERA in 188 1/3 innings at Triple-A over the last two seasons. He also has a 3.21 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 12/2 K/BB in 14 spring innings. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on him.

Description: Dylan Axelrod was superb in his return to the White Sox starting rotation on Wednesday, baffling the Orioles over 7 1/3 innings of work.
Insight: Axelrod, who was called up from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, only allowed one run on three hits, walking four and striking out five. He'll be making his next start Monday versus the Twins.

Description: White Sox pitcher Dylan Axelrod will join Chicago's rotation in place of the injured Philip Humber, according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com.
Insight: Axelrod is someone to target in deeper mixed leagues. The right-hander is 5-4 with a 3.18 ERA and 66 strikeouts in 68 innings in 11 starts for Triple-A Charlotte this season. He gave up two runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings in his only start this year, a May 6 outing at Detroit.

Description: White Sox pitcher Dylan Axelrod may not have been successful at the major league level in his only start this season, but he's tearing up the minors.
Insight: In five minor league starts for the Charlotte Knights of the International League Axelrod is 2-1 with a minuscule 0.87 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 31 innings. If those numbers continue, he should get another chance with the White Sox.
