2020 MLB Season: 5 Most Improved Teams

Chicago White Sox

Similar to the Reds, the White Sox were super busy this offseason. They spent over $200 million this offseason, filling many needs that were obvious.

Keeping Jose Abreu was huge. He has been a force in their lineup since 2014. He will continue to bring cosmic power to their lineup.

Signing Yasmani Grandal was huge. He is arguably one of the best catchers in baseball and is coming off a huge year. Grandal., who will only be 31 this year, was an All-Star in 2019and has a career-high in games played, runs scored, hits, home runs, walks, stolen bases, RBIs, and OPS.  With Grandal taking over the backstop, 2019 All-Star James McCann will be a fantastic backup catcher for the White Sox.

More. The Chicago White Sox have another Lucas Giolito. light

Their lineup kept gaining power, especially when they signed Edwin Encarnacion, 37. He was one of the most consistent sluggers of the last decade.  He has hit 414 home runs in his career and proved last year that he is still consistent.

After spending a lot of money, they made a smart trade with the Texas Rangers for right fielder Nomar Mazara.

Mazara is a very talented, and still very young, outfielder. Since 2016, Maraza has played 537 games and had about two thousand plate appearances, hitting 35 home runs and having a .261 average. He drove in 101 runs in 2017.

Dallas Keuchel and Gio Gonzalez will both be joining the White Sox’ rotation. Keuchel is going to be the second starter behind Lucas Giolito and Gonzalez will be their fourth starter. Their rotation gained a lot of depth and will definitely help their team win more games in 2020.

After only winning 72 games in 2019, they are projected to win 86 in 2020.
