Enrique Hernandez would be a fantastic addition to the Chicago White Sox for a variety of reasons. He is a free agent and it feels like the Dodgers might not have the need for a player like him anymore. The White Sox, however, could use him for a variety of reasons on a short-term deal and it probably wouldn’t cost all that much either. If he was willing to come to the south side, it would be a great decision.

For one, like every other player on this list, he is a World Series champion following the end of this recent season. He was also there for the previous few seasons in which the Dodgers came up just short more than once so you know he knows how to battle. The fact that he has been a part of the peaks and valleys that come with the MLB postseason makes him a valuable addition to a young locker room.

The White Sox have to be a nice-looking option for him if he had to make a list of teams. They are not (yet) as good as the Dodgers but they are well on their way. He knows how to play with stars and there are plenty of up and coming stars in the White Sox clubhouse. There are also potential spots for him to grab in the field (especially in right-field) and there are ways they can use him in non-starting rolls as well.

He can also play second base which might help if Nick Madrigal needs to miss some time early in the season. A pinch hitter is also something he has been known to be good at in his career which would really help this team go through 162 games and then a playoff season. If the interest was mutual, the White Sox should consider it.

light. Hot. The White Sox can learn from both World Series teams

The Dodgers have built something special out there on the West Coast and now they are champions. The White Sox would be smart to try and recreate a lot of what they do and bringing a former Dodger or two might help them take the next step. It will certainly be fun to watch and see where these guys end up.
