Not many players have been more fun to watch in Chicago White Sox Spring Training than Yermin Mercedes. He is yet another good catcher in the organization. He has taken the spring by storm and made a lot of fans believe he can be an impact player someday. It just doesn’t seem like there is a spot for him at the Major League level right now. They already have Yasmani Grandal, James McCann and Zack Collins likely making the team as natural catchers.
All three of those guys are also capable of being a third baseman or a designated hitter as well so that makes it hard to see Mercedes making the team right away. With that said, he should get an opportunity at some point during the season. He has been impressive during this Spring Training stretch which has been fun to watch.
You can never have too many good players in the organization. Mercedes becoming an impact player would just be another good thing for the White Sox. You need as much depth as possible to be a playoff team in baseball so Mercedes might be able to provide a little bit of that someday. Hopefully, he does reach what looks like a pretty high ceiling.
