Team Strengths: The White Sox have an bullpen for the first time in years, aided by the acquisition of Alex Colome and free agent signing of Kelvin Herrera. Combined with Jace Fry, holdovers Juan Minaya and Aaron Bummer, the White Sox stand to see improvement.
Team Weaknesses: White Sox starters posted a 5.07 ERA last year (26th in MLB) and the offense scored 656 conducts (24th), a double presence at the bottom of baseball that resulted in the franchise’s first 100-loss season since 1970. While a streak of subpar drafts this decade continues to haunt the club key players acquired in transactions Lucas Giolito and Yoan Moncada, have not performed.
What They Did About It: The White Sox traded for Ivan Nova to assist Yonder Alonso and the pitching staff to help the offense, and Jon Jay was signed by them. The help will come in the farm system when righthander Dylan Cease and potentially outfielder Eloy Jimenez come from the minors.
Last Outlook: The White Sox farm program graduations give them a chance to take a step forward, but their margin for error is sparse to avoid the next 90-loss season.
