The White Sox (51-63) are playing host to the Oakland Athletics (66-50) this weekend in the role of a potential spoiler with the A’s sitting a half game back from Tampa Bay in the AL Wild Card race.
Though the Southsiders won’t be making the playoffs in 2019, the development of their young players down the stretch and into next season will determine whether their rebuild is a year ahead of schedule, or still at least one year away.
With Lucas Giolito and Michael Kopech slated to lead the White Sox 2020 rotation, if Reynaldo Lopez can develop into a reliable third rotation piece for this team, they will have a big chance to surprise next season.
