The Chicago White Sox have lots of really good players and two of them stood out above the rest in August. It could be a sign of what’s to come.
The Chicago White Sox have had a decent season with all things considered. They are in a major slump as we speak but they are still two wins away from tying their total from all of last year with an entire month left. It has been a lot of ups and downs but the right players have shown major signs of improvement and the development across the organization has been solid.
Tim Anderson and Jose Abreu have been two major examples of that. Abreu is a veteran at this point but there is a decent chance that he sticks around. Him having a good season is important for his confidence and the White Sox willingness for him to stay. They have both been dominant at the plate in the month of August.
Tim Anderson led all players in the American League in August with 44 hits and Jose Abreu was in second with 42. Abreu was also fourth in the AL with 28 RBIs. It was a dominant stretch for these two and it was fun to watch for fans in a month that was hard as far as team success. They weren’t winning many games but they were getting good production from guys who are going to be there for the long haul.
It was a really good stretch for both of these players. It is also important that they both keep it up in September so that they feel good about themselves going into 2020. It appears to be a possibility that they a really good team in 2020 and there is a good chance that both Abreu and Anderson are right in the middle of it. Abreu and Anderson are awesome players and have proved any doubters wrong about them. If the White Sox plan on having a good September, these two are going to need to play well again.
