The Chicago White Sox are a loaded team with a lot of talent. We have heard a lot about their offense because of how good they were in 2020 and they should be even better in 2021. Well, their pitching needs to be just as formidable this year in order for them to be a World Series contender. With that said, there are some bats on this team that could go on to be American League MVPs. This is the most loaded lineup the White Sox have ever put out as a result. These are the five hitters who could actually win the MVP:

1B. Chicago White Sox. Jose Abreu. 79. player. 128.

We should probably start with the player on the Chicago White Sox that actually has an MVP in his back pocket. Jose Abreu was the best player in the entire American League during the 2020 season and he was rewarded for it. He took home his first career MVP thanks to his stats at the plate on a playoff team. The White Sox and Abreu stayed loyal to each other and it paid off tremendously. He is going to be a part of this big team for a while now.

Don’t expect Abreu to fall off too much in 2021. He doesn’t have to win the MVP but he will certainly be in the discussion. He has always been this good of a hitter but now there is talent around him. He gets better pitches than he ever has in his MLB career and that is because he is well protected in the lineup now.

Abreu is going to be the leader on this team in a lot of ways. He should be one of the two primary leaders in the clubhouse and he should be amongst the league leaders in a lot of statistics again. He will crack 30 home runs and over 100 RBIs if he stays healthy. Being on a playoff team sure looks good on him and the league knows it.
