Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn has built a balanced team. Each position group for the White Sox is comprised of players with different skill sets asked to contribute in different ways.
As such, there has to be a linchpin within each group that will contribute most to the successes—or failures—the White Sox will find in 2013.
So, who is the most valuable player at each position?
While each member of the White Sox's 25-man roster needs to contribute, if we take a deeper look at specific situations, four of them stand above the rest.
Beginning with the White Sox infield and ending with the starting rotation—since they will win or lose the AL Central—here is a look at the most important players by position group.
