A few months back, I wrote an article explaining how the current White Sox rebuild is centered around Tim Anderson and how he could very well end up being the future captain of the team. Well, it looks like the front office of the White Sox are thinking the same thing.

Rick Hahn seems to have a knack for locking up key players to team friendly contracts, i.e. Chris Sale, Adam Eaton, and Jose Quintana. If he continues that pattern, Tim Anderson will be patrolling short stop on the South Side for the long haul. Tim had a great rookie year and should only continue to get better as he gains more experience. It is one thing to acquire core players for the future, but it is equally important to lock them up longterm. It sounds like Rick Hahn is about to do just that. With Tim Anderson and Yoan Moncada manning the middle of the infield, the White Sox will have one of the younger and more entertaining double-play duos in all of baseball.

Get used to seeing a lot more of Tim Anderson on the South Side, folks.
