Josh Reddick could bring some of his experience to the Chicago White Sox.

Let’s pretend that the White Sox did want to give Adam Eaton more help in right-field and allow Adam Engel to be a true fourth outfielder (Eloy Jimenez could use a reliable late-inning defensive replacement). If they are out on someone like Yasiel Puig, they might look at some other free agents that are still available late. Josh Reddick is one of those guys that they might be able to think about.

Reddick spent his career with a few different teams. He started with the Boston Red Sox and then spent time with the Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Houston Astros. He was with Houston when they won the World Series with Houston in 2017. No matter what you think about that team, there is no doubt that some experience was gained for Reddick on that run. He was also teammates with Dallas Keuchel for a time which is something to remember as well.

He wasn’t great in 2020 but a lot of good players weren’t. Throughout his career, he has been a really nice baseball player that can be a depth piece on a good team. If he came to the White Sox, there is little doubt that he would be just that.

The White Sox might consider one of these guys or someone else. They also might just start the season with what they have and make a trade during the season based on whatever team needs present themselves. Either way, there is a lot to be excited about with this upcoming season.
