The Chicago White Sox face an offseason full of uncertainty. From an underperforming roster to a disgruntled fanbase, general manager Rick Hahn must make haste and return the White Sox to relevancy in the AL Central.
When he looks inside his organization, there are three prospects that stand out in potential and performance as being the type the White Sox can build around.
Now this list will concern itself only with those currently considered prospects. That means that Josh Phegley and Avisail Garcia will not be on the list. To be sure, both have a wealth of talent and are quite young, but each has passed the point of being a prospect.
It must also be noted that the only player the White Sox can truly build around is Chris Sale. That would be true on most MLB teams. That will not stop us from looking forward and examining which three are the type of ballplayer that when free agents are signed, it is to complement their talent, not to replace them.
Surely, there are others on the farm who will end up being fantastic baseball players, but here are the three prospects the White Sox can build around in the near future, presented in alphabetical order.
