This season, the Chicago White Sox have struggled to score runs. That is just a fact. However, the organization is deeper in certain areas than they are in others.
While it is uncertain the deals they will make or whom the White Sox are targeting, here are the key positions for the team needs improve upon for the rest of this season and into future seasons.
If the White Sox are going to make a deal for a position player in a major deal, catcher should be among the players involved.

This organization is awful at that position, considering the fact that they don’t have anyone (minors or majors) who has MLB starting potential.
Geovany Soto will likely be gone before 2016, and Tyler Flowers is nothing more than a backup. When looking at most minor league scouting reports, the Sox might not have anything better on the way anytime soon.
Will they address this position over the next six months?
Well, it starts over the next month, however it will be easier to find even more talent over the winter. I don’t expect them to have a whole lot of depth at the catching position anytime soon, however the Sox need to find a major-league caliber starting catcher by the start of 2016.
