The Next Wave of Prospects

Sox fans have been waiting in anticipation for the arrival of Jimenez. Similar to Michael Kopech‘s debut last season, when Jimenez does make his major league debut, Guaranteed Rate Field will surely be electric again this season.

After Jimenez, there will be other prospects that will move closer to making their major league debuts later this season and in 2020. Luis Robert could be one of those players to debut next season. Albeit, he will need a completely healthy season in 2019 and remain injury-free next year in Spring Training.

Another player that can possibly rise throughout the Sox farm system is Madrigal. The Sox fifth-ranked prospect could finish this year in Double-A Birmingham or even Charlotte. Madrigal is expected to make his major league debut in 2020 and depending on how quickly he gets promoted through the Sox farm system, penciling him in on the Opening Day roster next year might not be that far-fetched.

Many of the aforementioned prospects will be coming to Chicago over the next few years. Sure, the Sox missed out on adding a superstar free agent this offseason. But that shouldn’t mean fans should overlook the number of talented players still in the Sox farm system. There’s no need for any Sox fan to give up on this current rebuild. Patience is still needed but eventually, this franchise will again be competing for the postseason.
