The Chicago White Sox added in some extra help to their rotation and it is looking like a formidable group going into 2020.

The Chicago White Sox have made a flurry of moves this offseason. They have added a lot of talent across the entire baseball diamond. You can argue that they have an average or above-average player at every position which is something that not every team in the league can say. It is something that they haven’t been able to say in a long time either. It is an exciting time to be a White Sox fan for sure.

The biggest key to winning in Major League Baseball is pitching. The White Sox have used some free agency money to address that need. There have been some additions to both the starting rotation and the bullpen. The focus is going to be the starting pitching here because the bullpen was okay in 2019. Yes, it still needs a few more arms but if their rotation hits its stride then they will win some more baseball games. They have the horses on offense to score a lot of runs so if their pitching supplements that, 2020 will be a really good year.

The rotation now has more than five options throughout the 2020 season. There are some players who had some injuries that they had to deal with over the 2019 season so the key for them will be to make sure they come back completely healthy. There is a good mix of youth and veteran experience here as well. These are the pitchers that the White Sox will have available for their starting rotation staff in 2020:
