Adam Engel could be a really good player for the White Sox in 2020. He likely isn’t going to start in centerfield because Luis Robert is there. Robert is better at a lot of things than Engel but we don’t know for sure how he will be in the field. That is why Engel will be on the opening day roster. He is having a very good spring at the plate and in the outfield. He will be the perfect guy to bring in as a defensive replacement at different points in the season.
Zack Collins is in an interesting spot. He has a lot of talent as he showed in the Minors. Last season, he came up to the MLB during the season and was underwhelming. With that said, he still showed flashes of that made him one of the White Sox top prospects. He might not get much time behind the plate because of the Grandal/McCann duo but he has a role on this team. He might be able to be a backup first baseman or designated hitter on this team. He is a good option to make the Opening Day roster as a bench player.
Danny Mendick is going to be on the opening day roster as a middle infield backup. He can be a guy who comes in on off days for Anderson or Garcia. He had a pretty good year in a short sample size last season. He hit .308 which is a very good average, but it was only in 39 at-bats. He also hit two home runs and had 4 RBIs and 6 runs scored. He is a good option to be a depth player behind some of the stars.
The last roster spot will go Nicky Delmonico. He has had a pretty good Spring Training so far and should be afforded a chance to make an impact for this team someday. If he can continue to have a strong showing the rest of the spring, he will be a good guy to try and carry that momentum into the regular season. He can hit and he can play in the field in a depth role. He isn’t going to move any needles but he can be a good guy to have as an extra.
