As previously mentioned when talking about Scooter Genette, the White Sox would be wise to bring in some depth at second base. Brian Dozier could be one of those guys for the White Sox if they so choose. He brings some extra stuff that Genette might not be able to bring. They don’t absolutely need to bring another second baseman but if Dozier was one of the guys wanting to come to Chicago he would certainly be a good fit. He spent most of his career with the Minnesota Twins so he is familiar with the division.
He has one thing that would be so helpful for this White Sox team. That would be his playoff experience. In fact, he was with the 2019 Washington Nationals who went all the way to the World Series and won. This White Sox team is loaded with players who have never even seen a playoff race last past August so he would bring some very valuable experience in that department. It would be nice to have an experienced guy there who if the going gets tough in late August or September, he knows what to say.
Dozier is also a productive player and he isn’t that old. He is 32 which means he isn’t necessarily a long term option for the Whtie Sox but he would be good for 2020. He slashed .238/.340/.430 which isn’t that good but it would be awesome in a backup role at second base. What makes him compelling is the fact that he had 20 home runs and 50 RBIs. His 20 home runs meant he reached that plateau for six straight seasons. He would definitely be a decent fit coming off the bench whenever he was needed.
