The Chicago White Sox are a team that is loaded with young talent. A lot of them have made their way to the Major League lineup and Nick Madrigal is the most recent. He is a great young second baseman that will be a part of this team for a long time. There was a little bit of fear that they would move him for a big piece but fans should be very happy that they didn’t because he is going to be a great player on this team for a long time.
Madrigal feels like the kind of kid that might be lucky if he reaches five home runs in any particular season. He isn’t much of a power guy but his ability to have great at-bats is there. He can draw walks and hit for contact as good as any young prospect in the game. There is a reason that the White Sox selected him fourth overall in the 2018 MLB Draft. He looks like he is well worth the pick the White Sox spent on him so far.
He could end up being a very good leadoff man, ninth hitter, or even eighth hitter. There are a lot of power bats in the White Sox lineup that would be able to take advantage of Madrigal’s ability to get on base as the years go on. The good news is that he is having this great start to his career and he is only going to get better. The White Sox are lucky to have him and trading him would have been very foolish.
