Ryan Cordell

Ryan Cordell was a  gap player for the White Sox in 2019 but he was never going to be a guy on this team long term. He had some moments where he was good but there is no doubt the White Sox needs an upgrade at the right-field position. That is one of their areas of concern headed into the offseason. Their top two prospects are not right fielders and that could be the only non-pitcher position of concern next season if not addressed properly.

Cordell had a -0.6 WAR which is very not good and in 217 at-bats, he had 48 hits for a .221 batting average, 7 home runs, 22 runs scored, and 24 RBIs. He wasn’t an everyday player this season but he got enough time that there were games he stood out and others were completely invincible. He was one of four players sent to AAA Charlotte on Monday with the purpose of becoming a Minor League free agent following the 2019 World Series.

He should be able to find some work with another organization as the 27-year-old might be able to contribute to a AAA team and help them win. He is not going to be a part of the White Sox but he was a good soldier while he was there in a tough season.
