Scooter Gennett. 2. player. 40. . 2B. San Francisco Giants

The Chicago White Sox could also take a chance with a utility signing. Scooter Gennett spent his 2019 season with two teams and he didn’t get into many games. He was injured for portions of the season which saw him be below his standards for most of the year. That is why it might be smart and cheap to bring him to the south side.

Gennett would bring an element to the White Sox that they don’t have a lot of. That is an extra infielder that they can use whenever they needed. There are some guys there that could fill the role but it might be smarter to bring someone in who is a little bit more prove. Scooter Gennett could be that guy if Rick Hahn decided to take the risk on him. There aren’t many better options available.

2019 was not a good year for him in terms of his playing time or his statistics. Before that, he was a fantastic player for the Cincinnati Reds for two seasons. He had over 90 RBIs in both 2017 and 2018. He really reached his peak with the Reds but could absolutely get back to that level or close to it if he stays healthy and s put in the right position. He is going to turn 30 in May so he might not still be getting better but the White Sox can give him the opportunity to resurrect his career.
