Updated:

Chicago added more interior bats than any other team in the division. The White Sox added help behind the plate and inserted a proven RBI bat into their lineup. Chicago has a couple young stars who by all accounts seem to be ready to burst onto the scene. While they might be a little weak towards the bottom of the lineup, most teams are. Chicago should be able to score runs. How many runs they can score could be critical when faced with a questionable pitching rotation.

The White Sox added a couple veterans to the middle of the rotation. How these former staff aces materialize in 2020 could make or break Chicago's chances of being a surprise playoff contender. If these pitchers cannot remain healthy, or fall below their potential, a lot of weight will be placed on the shoulders of a young ace. The White Sox added some nice pieces to this team. How they play within their own division will be important to their success.

The White Sox struggled last season, finishing with the 5th worst ERA in baseball. Chicago received some talented young arms in recent trades, but they have not yet shown consistent numbers in the majors. Carlos Rodon missed a portion of the season, but went on and finished with a 4.18 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 120 innings. Rodon is the leader of the staff, which says a lot about where they are as a rotation. Rodon is a lefty that relies on his off-speed stuff, but leaves a little too much on the plate at times. Projecting Rodon to finish with anything under a four ERA seems to be fair, as that has been the recurring theme for him in his career. Reynaldo Lopez was an interesting name last season, finishing with a 3.91 ERA. Lopez upped his fastball velocity, and thrived during the colder months and bigger ballparks. Lopez has an issue of allowing too many fly balls, and when the temperature warmed up, so did Lopez’s ERA. A few tweaks to Lopez and he is a name to keep an eye on for a potential breakout year. This would be a major bright spot for Chicago if that was to happen.

Lucas Giolito is teetering on being a complete bust. He has shown below average strikeout stuff, and has been inept to getting left-handed hitters out. He also was torn up at home last season with a 7.80 ERA. Chicago doesn’t have a ton of options just yet to turn to, but his time is running out. He will enter as a backend starter, but don’t be surprised if he gets sent to the bullpen or minor leagues. Dylan Covey had a hot run to start his 2018 season, and then went back to being Dylan Covey. It is unlikely he resorts to 2018’s early form, but is a heavy sinker baller who just simply gives up too many hits. He had a 1.50 WHIP last season, which is projected to go higher in 2019. Ivan Nova was a fill-in signing for the White Sox, and probably won’t be a good one. Nova had a 1.40 HR or higher in the last two seasons with Pittsburgh. Heading to the American League and in a friendly hitters park, Nova’s 2019 outlook does not look good. Because of the lack of options in Chicago, Nova was the best they could do.
