White Sox don’t have a definitive closer for 2018 and beyond. Who will step up and become closer in the future for the South Siders?

One thing that has not changed on the South Side of Chicago in recent years is the inconsistency of the bullpen. White Sox fans have seen varieties of the bullpen in the last six to seven years. Not to mention the last bonafide closer was a member of the 2005 World Series team, and he went by the name of Bobby Jenks.

Of the many questions that come upon the minds of White Sox fans during this all-out rebuild is one that every potential World Series team must have answered. “Who is the closer?”  Or, a more appropriate question in the case of the White Sox would be, “Who will be the closer?”

With many options currently residing on both the major league roster and in the farm system, management has a good selection to pick from. They all differ greatly, as well. Some of them are 30-plus years old. A few just heard their name called in the draft within the last three years or so. Some are not products of the White Sox farm system. In fact, a truly potential option was just acquired within these past couples of weeks.

The White Sox are destined to be a great team within the coming years. If that’s going to happen, they need a reliable go-to guy at the back end of the bullpen. So let’s say the decision is in our hands. The following information that will be provided on each pitcher is what we have to go off of. If the decision were up to you, who would be pitching in the ninth inning for the White Sox?
