There’s excitement brewing on the South Side, so getting single game tickets to cheer on the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field should definitely be on your to-do list. A young nucleus being built around Jose Abreu is bound to provide energy in Chicago against a challenging schedule highlighted by a visit from the crosstown rival Cubs.
In addition to games with the World Series champs in July, the White Sox face division rivals Cleveland, Kansas City and Detroit. AL East winners Boston kick off a three-game series on Memorial Day, and AL West champ Texas arrives just before the 4th of July.

After dealing Chris Sale and Adam Eaton in the offseason, the White Sox have a bevy of prospects who likely will see playing time throughout the season. They will all revolve around Abreu and Todd Frazier, who combined to hit 65 homers in 2016. Infielder Yoan Mocanda and pitcher Lucas Giolito are the most major league-ready prospects, and they will be expected to contribute quickly.
Among the holdovers, left-handed starters Jose Quintana and Carlos Rodon could be ready for breakthrough seasons as both averaged nearly a strikeout per inning and racked up 22 wins between them. Chicago also has a solid bullpen in set-up men Dan Jennings and Nate Jones in front of closer David Robertson.
