"The White Sox have done nothing to bolster that depth despite a payroll one star short of the first tax threshold and a market that, when the winter started, was filled with players who could help them. The Sox swapped out Jose Abreu, who went to the Astros in free agency, for Andrew Benintendi. That is a downgrade offensively but a big upgrade defensively, getting Andrew Vaughn out of the outfield and over to first base."
