The Chicago White Sox had a lot of unexpected players step up big in 2021. A few of them were rookies that made a big impact.

Yes, it’s basic, and I’m cool with that.
Jose Abreu of the Chicago White Sox is the reigning American League MVP. That is at least for a couple of more days.

In falling short of their goal of winning the World Series, the Chicago White Sox realized that while there is some really good talent on the team there are some holes that need to be filled.

With manager Tony La Russa reportedly coming back for a second season, the Sox plan to build some stability around their exceptionally strong roster, and it feels as if anything short of an American League pennant will be a disappointment in 2022. Here is a position by position look at how the Sox should approach the offseason.
The Chicago White Sox had some outstanding pitchers step up big for them in 2021. The rotation was loaded and the bullpen had extreme talent.
