3 impactful free agent hitters for the Chicago White Sox to sign
The Chicago White Sox adding Trevor Story would add so much pop to their lineup.
The Chicago White Sox absolutely does not need a shortstop. Tim Anderson is perfect for that job right now as he is legitimately the face of the franchise. He isn’t going anywhere any time soon but that doesn’t mean that the White Sox should avoid Trevor Story.
If they can convince Story to play second base upon bringing him in, the White Sox would be so set for a long time. He can certainly play that position just fine. He really makes his money with his bat as he is one of the best hitters in the world.
In six years with the Colorado Rockies, he has been dominant at the plate. His time includes two Silver Slugger Awards and two All-Star appearances. He has also received MVP votes and appeared on the ballot, as a result, three times.
2021 was yet another good year for him. He slashed .251/.329/.471 for an OPS of .800 which is outstanding. He hit 24 home runs, had 75 RBIs, and scored 88 runs. All of those totals can even be considered low for him but he did deal with the trade rumors all season long before finally staying put. It would be interesting to see him hit at Guaranteed Rate Field in a lineup like this.
