Sooooooo, there’s one name and one name only that stands out when looking at these projected arbitration salaries for the 2020 White Sox. MLB Trade Rumors does them every season and they have it down to a science.
There are eight White Sox players who are arbitration eligible for 2020 and I’m not sure Rick Hahn is going to want to spend $6 million on Yolmer Sanchez to be a backup next year.
Here are the projected arbitration salaries for the White Sox.
- Alex Colome – $10.3MM
- James McCann – $4.9MM
- Leury Garcia – $4.0MM
- Carlos Rodon – $4.5MM
- Yolmer Sanchez – $6.2MM
- Ryan Goins – $900K
- Josh Osich – $1.0MM
- Evan Marshall – $1.3MM
Ryan Goins and Josh Osich are two other guys who the White Sox can easily waive goodbye to in the offseason.
But seriously, Sanchez was great at second base, but he’s one of the worst hitters in the game and has no power. Hard pass, especially with Nick Madrigal expected to come up from the minors early next season.
