NOTABLE INJURIES: CHRIS SALE and JAKE PETRICKA will start the season on the retro 15 day DL, but are expected back mid April.
PROJECTION: 1ST in the AL Central. Projected for 84 wins in this division which has lost some luster since last year.
MVP: JOSE ABREU
POTENTIAL ROOKIE IMPACT: SP CARLOS RODON will be in the rotation by the end of the summer in what will probably be a tight race for the divisional crown.
COMMENTS: The White Sox are probably the most well rounded and balanced team in the AL Central, their bullpen can use some shoring up and if DAVID ROBERTSON stays healthy they should contend for the divisional title in a weak division.
