Zack Collins has an outside chance of being the designated hitter this year. He is a catcher but with Grandal and McCann ahead of him on the depth chart it is hard to see him getting much time behind the plate for the Sox. They might want to get him some at-bats throughout the year at the Major League level so the designated hitter spot might be it for him in 2020.

He was very good throughout his minor league career so they are expecting big things from him this year and beyond. He got up to the majors last year but didn’t get the look that some other prospects have gotten when they were called up. Saying that this is a big year for Collins is an understatement. If he doesn’t show growth he might be on the way out. They could use him as a part of a trade package for another need as well with how much depth they have.

It would be nice to see him get some at-bats in this role before they give up on him, however. The kid can hit and has an incredible eye at the plate so seeing him in this role from time to time will be fun to watch. These are all good options for the White Sox at the designated hitter spot in the lineup and each one of these guys can bring something different to that role.
