2. Julio Mosquera

Julio Mosquera is someone to consider as a Tony La Russa replacement next year.

The Chicago White Sox might like what they’ve seen from Julio Mosquera in AAA with the Charlotte Knights. He is for sure someone to consider if you need to bring in a new manager for this team before the 2023 season starts and you stay in-house.

Mosquera was named to be the catching instructor before the start of the 2022 season but was named to be the acting manager following a leave of absence from Wes Helms. They have the worst record in their division but they don’t have a loaded team anymore.

There has also been a lot of up and downs with their roster as the White Sox have been adding and subtracting all season long. He knows a lot of the players playing with the big league club now which is also something that can benefit everyone.

A lot of the players that have gone down there from the White Sox have found success before coming back (Gavin Sheets, Romy Gonzalez, Seby Zavala, Lenyn Sosa, and Jake Burger). The coaching in Charlotte seems to be doing all the right things for them.

It might take time before the White Sox or any tea consider him for a job but if they want to stay in the organization he is going to be someone to consider. Former catchers become great managers a lot of the time and that is what could be happening with him.
