Right Field

Over the past few years, the Chicago White Sox have struggled to find themselves a right fielder that they want out there almost every single game. Nomar Mazara was brought in to try and be that guy but things didn’t work out the way that the Sox wanted them to. He might be there in 2021 too but he would make a great bench piece at best. They need to upgrade the position. As mentioned before, George Springer should be the first option but Kris Bryant would be a solid option if they can’t get Springer.

When people think of Bryant, they probably think of him as a third baseman. Well, he has mostly been a third baseman in his career. However, as his career has moved along, he started to play some outfield with the Cubs. He is pretty good at it but the White Sox would be wanting him for his bat anyway.

Yoan Moncada is the best third baseman in Chicago so Bryant would have to be the backup for that position. He would make a great right fielder though. He can play out there as well as anyone else they would bring in so trying him there would be well worth the risk in a year where they are expected to compete for the World Series.
