Right Field

The White Sox tried to address the right field position during the 2019 Winter Meetings. In fact, the biggest move that they made during the actual event was their failed attempt at fixing that position. They acquired Nomar Mazara from the Texas Rangers which looked like an okay gamble at the time. He was almost a lock to hit 20 home runs in a full season but he didn’t play that well in the short 2020 season.

However, even though Mazara wasn’t very good for the White Sox in 2020, they weren’t locked into him. He is already gone and they can now pursue another right fielder during the Winter Meetings. George Springer, formerly of the Houston Astros, is the biggest position-playing free agent on the market and the White Sox are sure to go after him. He may or may not choose Chicago but you can bet the White Sox would like to have him.

Springer isn’t the only guy out there capable of being the new White Sox right fielder. There are plenty of guys to consider both on the free-agent market and on the trade block. If the White Sox were able to land a good one, he would join an outfield with Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert which could form one of the best offensive outfields in all of baseball.
