8 Chicago White Sox are featured on MLB.com’s top 100 players
There are three Chicago White Sox players listed in the MLB’s top 100.
50. Luis Robert – CF
Robert took the biggest leap of any White Sox player in the Top 100 from the previous season. In 2021, he was ranked 94th. On this year’s list, he is ranked 50th. Why? Robert has huge potential and the people that came up with the list likely felt that he is going to have a huge season.
Robert can have a huge season as long as he stays healthy. He’s already shown in spring training that he’s ready and should be one of the top players in the league. Some even feel he could end up being the AL MVP in 2022 when it’s all said and done.
Be looking for a big year out of Robert in 2022 with his bat being one of the big reasons the team makes the playoffs this year.
45. Jose Abreu – 1B
This list would be incomplete if Abreu was not on it. Truly one of the better players in the league, this former AL MVP is one of the best first basemen in baseball. He also hits well and is well-liked by so many, especially his White Sox teammates.
Abreu is sort of an “Ironman” and rarely missed a game in 2021. He’s poised to have another strong season with good health and will be a big reason why this team finds so much success.
He did slide down the rankings from 2021 to 2022 going from 31st to 45th. However, he shows no signs of slowing down and should be a fixture on the team for several years to come.
31. Tim Anderson – SS
Anderson is the highest-ranked player on the MLB.com Top 100 list for the White Sox. The previous season, he was ranked 27th but has slid just a bit to number 31. He is one of the top shortstops in the League and his play on the field proves it.
Anderson is not error-prone when it comes to fielding and in the batter’s box, he is outstanding. Let’s not forget that Anderson won the batting title just a few seasons ago. A great all-around guy, look for Anderson to help lead the White Sox to bigger and better things.
