MLB: Chicago White Sox at Minnesota Twins

White Sox Season in Review: Smith, Soto, Volstad, Ynoa

There was a surprisingly long list of unexpected bright spots on the 2017 White Sox. Avisail Garcia, Leury Garcia, and Yolmer Sanchez were among the most discussed position players who far surpassed expectations coming in.
