White Sox pitching rotation has been better lately but still has a long way to go in order for the group to be above average in the Majors.

The White Sox are heading into the dog days of the season with only one goal in mind: Development.

Development has been the main objective for the White Sox over the last season and a half. That has not changed now that everyone is getting promoted throughout the organization. Development, growth and improvement are what is going to fuel and solidify the future.

But now the Sox are almost three months into a new season and many players have gotten more than a trial-run on the big league team. Everyone has now had the chance to see what the younger players are capable of at this stage in their short careers. Even the players currently in the minor league system.

There are mixed reviews on every player, some more positive and others more negative. But there are positives and negatives for all of them. Whether it’s incredible potential, great power, striking out too much, control issues, low velocity or high velocity, it’s fair to say that every player has some work to do regardless of what the numbers say and what the eye tests suggest.

At the beginning of the season, there were goals for every player based on how their spring training performances went, in addition to their early season projections.

Now almost halfway through the season here’s what these players should be focused on and what their goals should be to finish out 2018 strong beginning with the guys on the mound.
