Truth: Oscar Colas will be a finalist for AL Rookie of the Year
Over the years, the White Sox have been able to sign a steady stream of Cuban players. Jose Abreu, Yoán Moncada, Luis Robert Jr, and now Oscar Colas joins the group. So far, the 24-year-old right fielder has looked comfortable at the big league level.
He is currently third in AL rookies with a .275 batting average over 44 plate appearances (11-for-40). He has big power potential, but so far what has been impressive is his approach at the plate. Check out what he did here with this fastball tailing away high in the zone.
Even in the field, Colas has played a solid right field. He did pitch in Cuba, as a left-handed pitcher, so the arm is there in addition to his athleticism.
Chicago may not content this season for a division title but Colas represents a bright part of the White Sox future.
