The Chicago White Sox are blessed with a lot of talent and players that play very well. It’s a team made up of guys that mean a lot to White Sox baseball. The Sox wouldn’t be in the position they are in now if it wasn’t for these guys.

What do you think of when you hear the words American League Most Valuable Player? When it comes to the Sox, I am sure that you think of White Sox greats such as Frank Thomas, Nellie Fox, and Dick Allen. Most recently, Jose Abreu took the honor.

A White Sox player has won the award just five times over the course of their long history. That’s hard to believe but it’s true. This is something that can change especially the way the White Sox have been playing.

On a team that leads the AL Central by a mile and has one of the best records in baseball, there must be someone that stands out as an MVP candidate.

There is. In fact, there are three players that stand out as possible MVP candidates for the White Sox in 2021. Two of them are obvious but one of them may not be. But all three are legitimate candidates that, with a fine finish to the season, could end up being the AL MVP.

The Chicago White Sox enjoyed having an MVP player and would like another.

White Sox fans would love to see another player from their team earn MVP honors. I will never forget how proud I was when I found out that Jose Abreu earned the AL MVP honor in 2020. I, myself, felt a little better, felt a little taller, and had some bragging rights.

How great would it be to have those feelings again? It’s not out of the question that it won’t happen. It very easily could. Let’s take a look at three Chicago White Sox players that have a shot at earning the American League’s most coveted trophy when the season comes to a close.
