Kris Bryant would help the Chicago White Sox in every way all over the field.

The Chicago White Sox has a lot of needs this offseason. They were elite in 2021 but there are still a few more moves to be made before they can be true World Series favorites. One of those moves would be to bring in a really good outfielder to play right field. Kris Bryant would be someone that is a perfect fit for that job. He would also provide help for the White Sox in many different ways.

Bryant was traded to the San Francisco Giants by the Chicago Cubs at the 2021 MLB trade deadline. It was a significant swing in the MLB as an elite player was joining a very good team. The Giants went on to have the best record and baseball before falling in a very close playoff series to the Los Angeles Dodgers. You can bet that they will be hard in their pursuit to bring Bryant back.

If Bryant did decide to go to free agency instead of resigning with the Giants, the White Sox would be an outstanding option for both sides. He is already familiar with living in Chicago so that is a big part of it. He would also be offered a very important role with a team that has a chance to win the World Series. Right field would probably be his natural destination with this team but he would play all over the place.
