Team Strengths: The White Sox have an bullpen for the first time in years, aided by the purchase of Alex Colome and free agent signing of Kelvin Herrera. Combined with holdovers Juan Minaya, Jace Fry and Aaron Bummer, the White Sox stand to see significant improvement.
Team Weaknesses: White Sox starters posted a 5.07 ERA last year (26th at MLB) and the offense scored 656 conducts (24th), a dual presence at the base of baseball that caused the franchise’s first 100-loss year since 1970. While a streak of subpar drafts this decade continues to haunt the club key players obtained in trades Lucas Giolito and Yoan Moncada, have not performed.
What They Did About It: The White Sox traded for Ivan Nova to help the pitching staff and Yonder Alonso to assist the offense, and they signed Jon Jay. When righthander Dylan Cease and possibly outfielder Eloy Jimenez arrive from the minors the help will come in the farm system.
Final Outlook: The White Sox farm system graduations provide them a chance to take a step forward, but their margin for error is sparse to avoid the next season.
