White Sox are getting major contributions from young players that had yet to live up to their potentials before the start of the season.
Entering this season for the White Sox, many fans wanted to see improvements from younger players on the team. The veterans who remain on the team won’t be a part of the White Sox when they’re ready to contend, but the young players will.
Those young players include Yoan Moncada, Tim Anderson, Carlos Rodon and a host of other prospects in the minors currently. These three aforementioned players had yet to live up to their potentials before the start of the season.
Moncada nearly set the major league strikeout record last season. Anderson made improvements defensively last season and even finished the year with 20 home runs and 26 stolen bases but had a .240 batting average. Rodon didn’t make his season debut in 2018 until June and despite a strong summer, he ended the year poorly.
Each of these players is integral to the success of the White Sox rebuild. Despite neither of these players living up to their potentials before this season, they’ve each had good starts to this year and are starting to live up to what they can be as major leaguers.
