It’s just about time for the 2021 Major League Baseball Draft and you can bet that the Chicago White Sox are doing what they can to prepare for this important event. There are many “good” players entering the draft this year but the White Sox need to go after “great players”. It’s common sense.
The Chicago White Sox needs to continue building through the draft in 2021.
Looking back at last year’s draft class, and the positions they drafted, the White Sox appeared to be looking to build an arsenal of pitchers. That means they might want to look at a few other positions this year. Catcher is one position that they could use some help with as the depth there is a little bit lacking.
Another position that they could use some help at is shortstop. Tim Anderson is a great player but he’s not going to be there forever. What if he gets hurt? The Sox need a better back up and need to start bringing him up through the ranks now.
The outfield position has been a sore point for the White Sox this year with so many injuries overtaking the three positions. The Sox would be wise to upgrade their outfielder depth and get some guys that might develop into stars. Getting someone to go along with Luis Robert and Eloy Jimenez, in the future, would be golden.
After watching the MLB Combine and viewing as well as reading about some of the players that can be drafted this year, there are some that stand out and might be good fits for the Sox.
Trying to determine which players the Sox, or any team for that matter, is always difficult. However, we can always speculate and wonder who they will pick. Speculation is all part of the fun of predicting who will go where in the 2021 MLB Draft.
Let’s take a look at three prospects that the White Sox could and should be interested in heading into the 2021 MLB Draft this coming Sunday through Tuesday.
