Chicago White Sox. Leury Garcia. 27. player. 128. . 2B

Leury Garcia is a really nice player. He isn’t a superstar or anything but the White Sox will surely benefit from having him as a depth player on this team. His contract, however, is up after the 2021 season so the White Sox might be inclined to trade him. They also really don’t have a spot for him long term in the starting lineup. He would be even nicer as a guy coming off the bench but if a team wanted him and made a nice offer for him, it is a no brainer.

The reason he is probably a bench player in the long term of this team is Nick Madrigal. The White Sox drafted him with the fourth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Prospect Draft. He is the second baseman of the future so they might try to pass it along to him as soon as possible.

Garcia is also very capable of playing the outfield. With Eloy Jimenez in leftfield, Luis Robert in centerfield, the only outfield spot that was up for grabs is rightfield. Well, they made a trade to acquire Nomar Mazara from the Texas Rangers so he is likely going to be the guy there. That makes Garcia expendable sometime soon so you never know if they decide to go that route.
