Chicago White Sox second-half preview: Jose Abreu's record year
Chicago White Sox
Standing: 4th in AL Central
Batting Average: Jose Abreu, .292
Home Runs: Jose Abreu, 29
ERA: Jose Quintana, 3.24
The White Sox are in the cellar of the AL Central this season, and part of that has to do with injuries. Right-fielder Avisail Garcia is on the 60-day DL with a left shoulder injury. The bullpen is without Nate Jones and Matt Lindstrom, and Chris Sale, Abreu, and Adam Eaton have all spent time on the DL.
The Sox are likely in the sellers market as the July 31 trade deadline approaches; Veterans Adam Dunn, Gordon Beckham, John Sanks, and Alexei Ramirez could be sent to contenders in exchange for prospects.
