1B/OF. Chicago White Sox. Gavin Sheets. 32. player. 128.

The Chicago White Sox have seen Gavin Sheets grow into a very good player.

After slashing an above-average .295/.362/.507 across in 254 plate appearances at the Triple-A level to go along with 11 hr and 46 RBI, Gavin Sheets was called up to the big league club originally in June and then called up again on September first when rosters expanded. Across four seasons in the minors, Sheets has slashed .282/.359/.425 and looks to be a key contributor moving forward.

Upon being called up again, Sheets had a nice moment, smashing two home runs in his first day back to the big league club. Though currently only batting .233, Sheets is somebody you can plug in against righties where he slashes .248/.336/.547 and has a nice ISO of .299 and wRC+ of 133.

Sheets still has three options left so it will be interesting to see what the White Sox do come postseason time. They currently have some tuning up to do as they struggle to complete the clinch of the AL Central against teams they should be beating.

If anything, the Sox have some good trade pieces they can utilize moving forward should they use these guys to go that route. However, it would be nice to see Rick Rahn keep the farm somewhat intact to keep the competitive window open as long as possible. This postseason figures to be a good one as the White Sox look to make a deep run into October.
