Venezuelan infielder Adrian Gil hit the ground running with the White Sox in 2023. He was one of 11 international free agents that signing last January, and went on to dominate DSL pitchers all summer.

Gil led the team in batting average and on-base percentage, slashing .340/.481/.517 in his 45 games played. His patience was shown not only within his efficient OBP metrics, but he also walked four more times than he struck out in 2023, at a 13% walk rate against an 11% strikeout. He also led the team in doubles (11), was tied for second with 33 RBIs, and blasted five homers in 147 at-bats.

Gil played all around the infield, focusing primarily on the corners, starting the most games at first base (24 of 45 games), posting a .990 fielding percentage, much stronger than his .824 over at third.

Do not adjust your set: Gil shares an identical name and home country, and nearly identical build with relief-pitcher DSL teammate Adrían Gil. Our Gil here could stick as an undersized first baseman, presuming he can continue to knock the stuffing out of the ball. But one objective in his already-challenging move Stateside to the ACL in 2024 will be to better master either the hot corner or, depending on his quicks, second base.
