The Chicago White Sox might not have more of a utility player in the fold than Leury Garcia. He is an absolute stud when it comes to playing more than one position. He is listed on the White Sox depth chart as a backup at all three outfield positions, third base, and shortstop. He is also currently listed as the starting second baseman.

His job as the starting second baseman might not last very long either. Nick Madrigal is what the White Sox believe to be the second baseman of the future. His MLB debut is likely going to come during this 2020 season but the question is just when. He might make the team out of Spring Training but he might not. For as long as Madrigal is a question, it should be Garcia’s job. He plays competently in the field and is a pretty good hitter for the most part.

He might be expendable once Madrigal does come to the MLB, though. Another team that desperately needs a utility man like that could pay a nice price for him. If the White Sox receive an offer that will help them in their Minor League system, they should probably take it and move on from Garica.
