Some White Sox prospects are looking to join the team out of spring training. Which player has the best shot of being on the team by Opening Day?
White Sox fans, it’s time. The 2018 season is officially beginning with a very exciting spring training campaign. Like every spring, the White Sox are looking to see how each player has progressed over the offseason. and also which players will be ready for the show come late March.
Last season, waiting for prospects was inevitable and more than an afterthought. Sox general manager Rick Hahn was extremely adamant about player development and did not make any call-ups until well into the season. This year might be a little different, however. As most know, the team is entering the developmental stage of the rebuild and there are more players ready now than there was last year.

Down at Camelback Ranch, some players are waiting for their opportunity for a chance to play on Opening Day or at least be a part of the roster. And it’s not entirely out of the question that a player can play well enough to make the Opening Day roster.
Last season, Jacob May won the starting center fielder job because of an injury to the projected starter, but also because of his performance throughout the spring. The Sox might still be years away from winning much of anything so not only are positions available but giving players the opportunity for those spots might uncover a great hidden talent. Here are a few of those prospects who can grab an Opening Day roster spot.
