If the White Sox were unable to land George Springer, Marcell Ozuna wouldn’t be a bad option by any means either. He is a fantastic player that is now looking for a new home after spending just one season with the Atlanta Braves. This comes after five great years with the Miami Marlins and two with the St. Louis Cardinals. The Braves are going to do everything in their power to make sure that Ozuna sticks around because that is also a World Series contending team.
If the Braves were unable to retain Ozuna, however, the White Sox should go for him. He fits the category of players who “push you over the top”. He has primarily been a left fielder but the White Sox would absolutely be able to use him in right. Who knows, maybe they even switch around him with Eloy Jimenez from time to time to see how it goes.
Either way, if he played right, Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert, and Marcell Ozuna would form one of the best offensive outfielders in the game. As for defense, we know about Eloy’s issues in the field but Robert and Ozuna are both known for being great in the outfield as they each have a Gold Glove apiece. If they wanted to add him to be their new right fielder, he would be a great fit.
The cool thing is that he also has experience as a designated hitter as well. Without Edwin Encarnacion or James McCann impacting that position next year, he would fit the mold to have that role as well. His playoff experience doesn’t include a World Series but he has more experience in that area than pretty much the entire White Sox roster.
