After an appetizer of some pretty talented pitchers earlier, it is time for the main course! Marcell Ozuna is truly one of the best outfielders in all of baseball right now. He would be a fantastic addition to this Chicago White Sox team. Not only from a personality standpoint would he be awesome, but he also fits a major team need. They would love to insert his bat right into the lineup in place of the right fielders they have been using.
He used to be a part of an outfield that consisted of Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton. Sharing the outfield with Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert wouldn’t be much different in terms of fielders who can mash baseballs. This new outfield would be able to replicate what that old trio used to do down in Miami before they blew it all up.
Ozuna was one of the league leaders with 18 home runs and 56 RBIs. He slashed .338/.431/.636 which is amazing. After looking at those stats and his 2.3 WAR in 60 games played, he should be near the top of the vote for National League MVP. If they added that guy to this White Sox lineup without losing an important roster/prospect player and only for money, it would be a major win. This was one of the best players in baseball this year and could continue to play well once he moves on from Atlanta.
The White Sox have just a few holes to fill. The World Series is about to start which means that the season is almost over. When it officially ends you might see them hire a manager and then really get to work on improving the team. It should be exciting to watch and to see if they look in Atlanta’s direction for help.
