Chicago White Sox: Getting ready for Madrigal and Robert
The Chicago White Sox are going to be using Luis Robert and Nick Madrigal in the upcoming short season. That is a big step for the organization.
The Chicago White Sox have a lot of promising young players in their organization. There are plenty of young prospects that they are excited to have in the pipeline. They are getting ready to add some of the bigger prospect names over the next two or three years but Nick Madrigal and Luis Robert lead the pack. Both of them are probably going to be a part of the big league club as early as this year.
Of the two, Luis Robert is the one that people are the most excited about. He is an incredible player and can do it all. He might be the closest thing to a five-tool player in the White Sox organization. In the minors, hitting the ball to the moon was his specialty that really started to make Chicago White Sox fans excited. He signed with them as an international free agent a few summers ago and now he should be their starting centerfielder for the next decade or more.
Nick Madrigal, however, still could end up being one of the better players on the team as well one day. He is a guy who makes contact as good as any young prospect and can play defensive second base at a very high level. He was a first-round, fourth overall, draft pick of the White Sox in 2018. He might not be in the White Sox starting lineup on Opening Day this year like Robert will be but there is a good chance he is the starting second baseman every day by the end of the year.
Both of these players carry tremendous value to the White Sox. They already have a very good core in place so filling out the weaknesses in the rest of the roster is the big key. These two should be able to do both in terms of filling out the roster and becoming a part of such a great core. When these two finally get to play meaningful games in a White Sox uniform, it will surely be a fun time for all White Sox fans watching.
