The Chicago White Sox are coming off of a year where they were very good. At 93-69, they won the American League Central with relative ease. That also came in a year where they had some serious injuries to some very impactful players.
They got through those tough times but it was clear that they were just a bit below the Tampa Bay Rays and Houston Astros in terms of contender status. The MLB lockout is making it harder than usual to make upgrades but they should still be even better in 2022.
With everybody healthy and ready to go, it should be a year where they are able to have much more lineup continuity. Injuries are going to happen as they happen to everyone. However, multiple players that are the face of the franchise-type players missing months at a time isn’t likely.
We know for sure that Tony La Russa is going to be making the lineups for the White Sox in 2022 as he is back as the manager for another year. He did a pretty good job in year one but we all know that this team has another level to get to. It will be interesting to see if they can get there this year.
