Micker Adolfo

The Chicago White Sox could make his way up to the big leagues eventually.

One of the best players that the Chicago White Sox had in spring training this year was Micker Adolfo. He was looking like someone that for sure made the team but he did not break camp with the team.

Adolfo was out of Minor League options so he had to be put on waivers. It seemed obvious that he would be claimed rather quickly and a bad team would give him lots of playing time. Unfortunately for him, nobody did and the White Sox were able to keep him and send him to AAA Charlotte.

This is a good thing for the White Sox but it would be nice to see him finally reach his MLB dream at some point. He is probably close to doing that now with some of the injuries that the White Sox have had so far this season.

With AJ Pollock having a bit of an injury in addition to paternity leave, Adolfo would be a perfect player to be called up and get a shot in his place. Adam Engel is better suited than Adolfo is in that role and Andrew Vaughn is a better hitter but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve a chance. Hopefully, we see him in the big leagues soon enough.
