Chicago is estimated to finish with just under 78 wins at Baseball Reference, which would be good for third place in the AL Central. Meanwhile, FanGraphs’ Dan Szymborski projects it to accrue 74 wins. The White Sox own their fair share of talent in Luis Robert, Yasmani Grandal, Eloy Jimenez, Andrew Benintendi, Tim Anderson, and Andrew Vaughn.
Without Jose Abreu in the fold, Robert ( AL MVP odds) represents the heart of the bunch. The center fielder is appraised to finish with 121 wRC+, including 24 home runs and 92 RBI. But Robert & Co. are all seemingly one day away from the IL, and the organization failed to address holes at second base and in the outfield as well.
Chicago’s rotation depth is also a concern, unless Dylan Cease (2.70 xERA in 2022), Lance Lynn, Lucas Giolito, and Michael Kopech each start 30 games. That notion is especially the case if the newly-signed Mike Clevinger, who’s under MLB investigation, isn’t a part of it. Cease finished behind Justin Verlander in the AL Cy Young race, as his fastball spin rate ranked in the 96th percentile (per Baseball Savant) to go along with a wipeout curveball.
Their bullpen should deliver a top-10 product — at the least. Although All-Star closer Liam Hendriks (2.59 xERA in 2022) won’t return for the foreseeable future while recovering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Kendall Graveman, Aaron Bummer, and Reynaldo Lopez provide reliable arms.

AL Rookie of the Year Futures
Thanks to Chicago’s organizational ineptitude, rookie Oscar Colas () will likely take over in right field. Colas has been bet down from his +2300 price tag last month.
The Orioles’ Gunnar Henderson () is the rightful favorite in this market, but Colas’ power presents intriguing upside — especially if he’s with the Major League roster on Opening Day. However, he’s only played in one professional US season, so his floor is also on the lower end because of his raw talent.
