Dylan Cease of the White Sox is officially a Scott Boras client
The Chicago White Sox has some great pitchers. Most of them, however, are great and still haven’t reached their true potential yet. One of those is Dylan Cease. He has been developing very well over the last few years and the White Sox have done a great job with him.
Of course, Cease came over to the White Sox from the Chicago Cubs along with Eloy Jimenez in exchange for Jose Quintana. That is one of Rick Hahn’s finest moves as the man in charge of the White Sox and it is hard to see that being beat. He landed a star bat and a pitcher that has a chance to be elite for a middle-of-the-rotation soft tosser.
Since coming to the Major Leagues in the middle of the 2019 season, Cease has seemingly gotten better with each passing start. We have seen him develop right in front of our eyes and now he appears to be ready to take the next step.
Going into 2022, he appears to be the number three guy in the rotation. That doesn’t mean much because other Cy Young candidates in Lucas Giolito and Lance Lynn are ahead of him. If Cease and Michael Kopech reach their potential as early as this year, they could have a rotation that is four aces deep.
Dylan Cease of the Chicago White Sox is hoping to get paid big one day.
Cease apparently knows how good he is going to be because he made a major business decision. It has come out via Jon Heyman of MLB Network on Twitter that Cease has become a Scott Boras client. We all know about what that means for the great players that he represents.
If Cease becomes an ace pitcher before the end of his current contract (and years of control), he is going to make a lot of money with Boras representing him. That could come with the White Sox and it could come with another team.
It really isn’t something to worry about right now though because that is something that comes with having lots of good players. Some will stay and some will move on. It is up to the White Sox to develop a good organization in case these things happen. Cease is going to get paid one day and he is going to deserve it.
