CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago White Sox have a dynamic power hitter in Jose Abreu. They have one of baseball's best pitchers in Chris Sale and a pesky leadoff man in Adam Eaton.
Then there is the rest of the roster.
Led by Abreu, the favorite for AL Rookie of the Year, Chicago posted a 10-game improvement this season compared to its 99 losses in 2013. It closed the season by dropping three of four against playoff-bound Kansas City in the final series for slugger Paul Konerko, who retired after 18 years in the majors.
