The White Sox have gotten a lot of great years from Jose Abreu. None might be greater than this last season he had where he led the American League with 123 RBIs. Winning an RBI title can’t hurt his wallet doing it in his contract year. He also hit .284 and had 33 home runs. He was one of the best players on the team and has been the single best player overall since joining the team in 2014. He had a WAR of 2.4 in 2019 and a career WAR of 21.2.
The White Sox are going to do everything they can to bring Abreu back and he seems to really want to see this rebuild through. The only reason he is on this list is because of the fact that his contract is up and the World Series is almost over. His free agency looms and anything can happen. It would be a big hit to the White Sox to lose him so it would be in their best interest to let him come back and see this through.
Abreu was there for a lot of bad baseball being played by the White Sox, and now that this thing might be about to turn the corner it would be great to see him be a part of it. He was the only great player they kept through the rebuild so they might as well keep him now. There are going to be other teams that pursue him which is why there is a small chance he is playing for another team in 2020.
Anything can happen with any of these players and some of them are more likely than others to be gone, but they all have at least a chance of not being members of the Chicago White Sox in 2020. We would like to see a few of them back but there are no guarantees.
