Monday’s White Sox spring training day was filled with star power

The Chicago White Sox had a very interesting day on Monday. They formalized the signings of Joe Kelly and Vince Velasquez who started their day on a high. After that, some of the team’s biggest stars started arriving.

A lot of the guys who showed up for spring training on Monday are the guys we know and love from this team rather than just prospects. All the players that are going to impact this team this year are already there unless they make another trade or sing.

Guys like Luis Robert, Yoan Moncada and Eloy Jimenez were all seen at Camelback Ranch on Monday. It’s so great to see these guys after the 99 days of lockdown where we had no idea if there would be baseball.

These guys join other hitters like Tim Anderson and Andrew Vaughn who were there late last week. As they really start to show up, we’re struck by the fact that baseball is almost back, making this spring training day feel like a star.

The Chicago White Sox continue their spring training as they really step up.

The batters aren’t the only players to arrive as a group, either. It should be noted that although he was not ready to start the season due to injury, Joe Kelly was present. This is a big signing for the White Sox as he plans to join one of the best bullpen in the league.

With guys like Liam Hendriks, Craig Kimbrel, Aaron Bummer and Kendall Graveman in the mix, the back of the bullpen will be untouchable when they’re on. The hope is that the White Sox have an outstanding record in games where they enter the 6th inning or later with a lead.

We also got to see Lucas Giolito and Michael Kopech kicking off on Monday as well. Both are going to make big starts in 2022, so the White Sox need these guys to start this season. It’s good to know they’re back in the hands of Ethan Katz post-lockdown.

Spring training is really ramping up now. The matches are only a few days away, so what happens in those early sessions is hugely important. If you think about it, building a World Series title as a team on the court starts in spring training.

We can only hope these days go well for the White Sox players as they prepare to win plenty of games. Having them back in spring training, as previously mentioned, is nowhere near where we were before the lockout ended.
