The Chicago White Sox were probably going to start the season with Nick Madrigal in the minors for a variety of different reasons if this was a normal season. With the team and all of Major League Baseball suspended for right now, the timing of Madrigal’s MLB debut is unknown right now. He could be a part of the White Sox right when they come back or it could still take some time.
It looked like Leury Garcia was going to be the starting second baseman until Madrigal was ready to be called up but now we don’t know. Madrigal could certainly be a guy who benefits from there being an expanded roster implemented into Major League Baseball. If they feel he can play now, he could make the team as early as Opening Day.
We don’t know if he will benefit or not but it would be weird to not have him play baseball at all. We don’t know how Minor League Baseball is going to operate either which makes Madrigal’s status even more interesting. It might be nice to see Madrigal make the team right away with expanded rosters so we can see their number two prospect take the next step.
