This is the perfect Chicago White Sox lineup with Josh Harrison
8. Josh Harrison 2B
Josh Harrison will make a great Chicago White Sox eight hitter once the season starts.
The newest member of the White Sox helps round out the bottom of the order. Josh Harrison, is a two-time All-Star but at the age of 34, his best years are behind him. However, his bat-on-ball skills have not escaped the 11-year vet.
His career batting average is .274. He is coming off a good 2021 campaign at the plate that saw him slash .279/.341/.400. Most of this was due to the blazing start he got off to with the Washington Nationals. In 90 games he was hitting at a .294 clip.
He was dealt to the Athletics before the trade deadline and cooled off a bit. He managed to finish the season with 43 extra-base hits and eight home runs.
Harrison was once a stud with the Pirates. In 2014, he finished ninth in the MVP voting after batting .315. He returned to the All-Star game in 2017 and finished the season with a career-high 16 home runs.
The current that the White Sox are getting is a slightly better version of Leury Garcia. There is nothing wrong with that from your eight-hitter. Harrison can put the ball in play and steal a bag or two if necessary. With all the power that the White Sox has in the lineup, he is a change of pace to help balance out the order.
