The Chicago White Sox have some big long term plans for second base, but for now, it is going to be Leury Garcia. He hasn’t played all that much of the position in his MLB career but he has proven that he can play almost every position on the diamond. Even on days that he doesn’t start at second, he can play another position while someone else takes a day off. This guy makes the roster because of the multi-talents he brings to the table.
Garcia was a pretty good player for the White Sox in 2019. That is one of the main reasons that they brought him back this season. He hasn’t been let go or traded to this point so it is fair to assume that they are going to give him another look in 2019. His time at second base for the White Sox might come to an end at some point this season, but he will definitely be on the opening day roster for Chicago.
If they end up with someone else at second base during the season, Garcia’s spot on the roster will still remain. He will help the team in many different ways throughout the season and you need guys like that in the fold in order to be a playoff team.
