The 2022 Major League Baseball season is upon us as spring training is winding down. The Chicago White Sox have had a mixed back of success and failure during this period but it is spring training so nothing counts right?

One thing that spring training does do is help prepare players for the upcoming season. It also gives managers time to look at their roster and make decisions.

One of the biggest decisions that the White Sox will have to make prior to the season is choosing who is going to occupy the designated hitter’s spot in the lineup. There are several possibilities and we will take a look at those players that could fill that position for the 2022 season.

Looking at the roster, there are essentially five players that the Sox could rotate through the DH position. There are some players that are not regular starters in the mix. There are also some starters that the White Sox could use to help man the position this season.

The Chicago White Sox needs good players to be designated hitters this season.

One thing is for sure, the White Sox will not use just one player at the designated hitter position. There are multiple different players that could fill that role while also contributing some defense throughout the course of the 2022 MLB season.

The following is a look at some of the players that could be utilized in the designated hitter role in 2022 for the White Sox. How has their spring training been going? Can they fit in as the DH for the entire season on a World Series contender? We will find out.
