White Sox infielders are graded for 2016 season. The White Sox infielders were solid for the team this season, but there’s room for improvement.

With the World Series coming to the North Side on Friday, Chicago White Sox players are finally getting into their own off-season groove. No better way to break up that noon tee-time than by dropping an annual report card on their doorstop.

Not everyone will be exactly pleased with their marks in what was an uneven season for most of the roster. The infield was about as intriguing as any facet of the club, with big names like Todd Frazier and Jose Abreu reaching a reasonable finish line statistically but getting there through strange routes and sequencing. The middle infield was a mixed bag comprised of an aging veteran in his senior year, the young freshman on the block in Tim Anderson, and chronically absent Brett Lawrie. Behind the plate, someone’s grade won’t be getting framed above the fireplace mantle if you catch my drift.

So if your computer and cellular device survived the bedlam in Chicago, scroll through to see who from the South Side made the honor roll; even if the honor was sitting at home in October.

*IF Carlos Sanchez and C Omar Narvaez will appear in the utility player and bench player grades*
