Fresh off of a 93-win season and a first place finish in the American League Central, the Chicago White Sox are flying high heading into 2022.

What has changed about the Chicago White Sox roster so far this offseason?

The vast majority of the team’s roster will look similar as it did last year. Why change if you have something good going? To this point the White Sox have re-signed utilityman Leury Garcia and signed star relief pitcher Kendall Graveman.

The club’s only noteworthy losses come in the form of second baseman Cesar Hernandez (who signed a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals), right-hander Ryan Tepera, and a revitalized Carlos Rodon (who remains a free agent but is expected to sign elsewhere). Surprisingly, the team doesn’t seem to be all that interested in bringing one of their best pitchers back according to Bob Nightengale.

As it always goes with any successful baseball team, the White Sox do have some holes in their roster that they need to address if they are to continue their recent performances. Let’s take a look at a few moves that should be on their to-do list once the Major League Baseball lockout ends.
