Two Prospects To Compete for White Sox's Starting Second Base Job

Spring training will be important for these two players.

Romy Gonzalez and Lenyn Sosa will compete in spring training for the Chicago White Sox's starting second base job.

Unless the White Sox make another signing or acquisition before Opening Day, Gonzalez and Sosa are in line to fill the White Sox' second base vacancy.

Gonzalez got into 25 games last season with the White Sox, slashing .238/.257/.352, with two home runs, 11 RBIs and 15 runs scored. He spent the rest of the season at the Triple-A level, posting a .232 batting average, with eight home runs, 20 RBIs, five stolen bases and 20 runs scored over 138 at-bats.

Lenyn Sosa is the White Sox's fourth-ranked prospect.

Sosa made his major-league debut last season, posting a poor .114/.139/.229 triple-slash line, with one home run, one RBI and three runs scored over 11 games. 

The twenty-three-year-old spent the majority of the season in the minors, split between Double-A and Triple-A, where he recorded a fantastic .315/.369/.511 triple-slash line, with 23 home runs, 79 RBIs, three stolen bases and 77 runs scored over 119 games.

As of right now, Sosa is the favorite to win the job.
