When the 2015 Major League Baseball season ends in about six weeks the Chicago White Sox season should be classified as a major disappointment. A team that was expected to contend for the American League Central has scuffled along to a 53-58 going into tonight’s contest against the Los Angeles Angels.
One of the main reasons why this team has failed to meet and exceed expectations is the play of the men behind the plate, the catchers. If you take a look at the teams that are competing for the playoffs, the majority of them have a catcher who is above average or better.
This is where the White Sox need to upgrade in the offseason as a catcher can do wonders for the team offensively and defensively.
So what can the White Sox do to improve this area? We’ll take a look at their current roster, the farm system as well as possible free agents or maybe even a trade to see who may be a fit.
