South Side Sox Roster Ranking: Round 18

New, 10 comments

Who is the 18th-most important member of the White Sox major-league roster?

MLB: Chicago White Sox at Oakland Athletics
Hide Your Head in Shame: It’s been a pretty bad start to 2018 for Miguel González.
John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

Congratulations to Aaron Bummer, who takes the No. 17 spot on our roster ranking!

Bummer won with a third of our lowest voting output yet 33% (13 of 40 votes). Notable: in this most recent vote, late addition Kevan Smith has passed Omar Narváez in support.

Next up in the mix is a starter who has somehow been the very worst for the White Sox out of the gate this year.
