2. Bullpen Depth
This is the issue the White Sox will possibly regret not doing more to avoid.
Steve Cishek was the White Sox’s only addition made to counter this problem on a major league deal this offseason.
Marshall and Bummer don’t have extensive track records of success, though, which complicates matters if one or both of them can’t live up to the team’s expectations of them going forward.
The good news about one of the three biggest weaknesses of this team being bullpen depth is that most teams would consider this one of their’s as well.
Almost all contenders look to the trade market come July to acquire an arm or two to bolster it and if they don’t look for top-tier arms, the White Sox could probably find a solid reliever for cheap before the MLB trade deadline.
Collin McHugh is still available right now, though, and the White Sox should be making a strong effort to sign him.
