Jorge Soler coming to the Chicago White Sox could work if done the right way.
Jorge Soler is one of the most interesting free agents on the market right now. He is a very good player but he is also someone who isn’t always as good as his potential. He had a negative WAR in 2021 split between the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves but he would claim it was the best year of his career.
Soler won the World Series for the second time in his career, this time with the Atlanta Braves. He was named to be the World Series MVP because he was so good in that series against the Houston Astros. Seeing the White Sox sign the reigning World Series MVP would not be a bad thing at all, especially since it came against the team the Whtie Sox needs to go through.
He is going to hit a lot of home runs regardless of what team he signs with. The thing that could make the White Sox intriguing for him is their stadium. Guaranteed Rate Field would be the perfect home ballpark for a hitter like Soler who has so much power.
The White Sox are also a very young team that could use the playoff experience that he provides. He is familiar with the town because of his time with the Chicago Cubs and the White Sox needs someone who plays his position. It just seems to be a really good fit all around.
