Robin Ventura is entering his third season managing the White Sox.

Did Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn do enough this offseason to turn a team that went 63-99 in 2013 into a playoff contender?

It would be nice to say that he did, but the reality is that while the White Sox will be an improved team in 2014, they will likely fall short of reaching the playoffs. That is not a pessimistic assessment. It is a pragmatic one.

To be sure, significant strides have been made, and the team Hahn has put together figures to be better on the basepaths and at the plate. And as most fans know, both of those areas needed significant improvement. Now the defense is still questionable, but the GM addressed quite a few needs in a short amount of time.

Starting this week, White Sox fans will get their first taste of what’s to come. Let’s take an in-depth look at what to expect during spring training.
