Nobody knows exactly when the Chicago White Sox and MLB as a whole will return, but it definitely will have ramifications for everyone.

The Chicago White Sox are going to have a delayed start to their season that will almost certainly see a reduction in games.

As detailed by Jeff Passan of ESPN, MLB’s tentative plan right now is to have a neutral site of Arizona for all 30 MLB teams that will include scheduled seven-inning doubleheaders.

While the return of baseball is certainly something we all want to see, that plan could prove dangerous for many reasons, with safety being one of them if done improperly.

It also could significantly hinder the ability of some players to succeed in the South Side this season, as this will be a completely unfound environment for America’s pastime for many across the game.

I highlighted recently how this decision could possibly lead to Nick Madrigal not receiving a call up this season and so he won’t be included on this list.

The Chicago White Sox, unfortunately, have a few key players that could be hindered this season by the rules put in place.

Here are three players most likely to be hurt by a delayed and condensed season in 2020.
