The Chicago White Sox are in need of some help in order to get over the edge in the American League. They are right there in terms of a championship contender but need just a bit more. A right fielder, a second baseman, and some more pitching would go a long way for this team.

There are many options to consider for that outfielder spot and few are better than Kris Bryant. Of course, White Sox fans probably know him as one of the pillars that brought the other side of town its first World Series in 108 years.

With the Chicago Cubs, Bryant was sensational. He won a Rookie of the Year Award, an MVP, and a World Series Championship over his seven years spent with the Cubs. He also had four All-Star appearances which are incredibly remarkable. He is such a great player.

In 2021, the Cubs traded him (and much of their core) away as a result of pending UFA status. Bryant landed with the San Francisco Giants who was one of the best teams in Major League Baseball. He had a lot of success there before their season came to an end in a very close postseason battle.

The Chicago White Sox should really consider adding Kris Bryant to the mix.

Bryant should have his pick of the litter as he is the type of player that makes any team better. Every team could use him too because of the fact that he has the tools to play pretty much anywhere on the diamond.

His early days in the Major Leagues saw him at third base. Since then, he has proven that he can man any position. If he were to find his way to the south side of Chicago, he would primarily be their right fielder.

Although he is a better defender than someone like Eloy Jimenez, there is not much of a chance that he plays left over him due to the batting order and trying to get the most out of everyone. He may play some third from time to time but that belongs to Yoan Moncada right now.

With injuries and off days, there is a good chance that he sees some time at both of those positions which is also very helpful. Adding a player like that would make this team even more dangerous.

With a move like this, someone like Adam Engel can become the fourth outfielder which is a perfect role for him, It would also allow kids like Andrew Vaughn and Gavin Sheets to grow their offensive game which is where they are going to make their money. All in all, bringing in Bryant would really help the team as a whole.
