Rookies and Youngsters

The talk of this upcoming season will be the prospects the White Sox received in the offseason, but the Sox want more than just attention from these players this season. As previously mentioned, a lot of these players have limited to no major league experience so the main objective for this season will be to learn the game at the major league level.

Like in every sport, the game at the professional level is played by the best players in the world and the quality is something the younger guys have to get used to. They need to get comfortable with the pace and details, and every game played will contribute to their growth as players and teammates.

Plenty of these players have tremendous value.  However, their development this season is going to depend on the decisions the coaches make on how much playing time they will get throughout the course of the season. The main goal for these players is to relish those opportunities and learn as much as possible.

Their first full season could be rough and discouraging. As long as there is progression in skill, intangibles or major league knowledge, that should be considered a victory for Renteria and the White Sox.
