Player Outlook
Players normally have breakout seasons in their third full year at the big league level, but apparently Gavin Sheets decided to flip that script. Sheets had a strong breakout rookie season in 2021, but has backslid each of the past two seasons to what was just an absolutely dismal 2023 campaign at the plate. The biggest challenge to his success is opposing pitchers figured out last season that he could be challenged with fastballs and they fed him a steady diet of them as he hit .205 off fastballs while slugging .366 off them. Those numbers are not suitable for a backup catcher let alone a corner outfielder/first base/DH type like Sheets. A poor first half (.220/.298/.374) gave way to an abysmal second half (.178/.223/.271) but Chicago continued to put him out there against righties. 2024 could see Sheets go back to the minors as he does have an option remaining so a resumption of his 2023 role is not guaranteed. He needs to flip the script right side up.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Still getting regular starts

    Sheets will start in right field and bat cleanup in Sunday's game against the Marlins. Though Sheets doesn't have a direct path to an everyday role at any one spot in the lineup, he's now been included in the starting nine for five of the last six games while seeing action in right field, at first base and at designated hitter. Andrew Benintendi will get a day off Sunday to make room in the outfield for Sheets.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Starting Saturday

    Sheets (heel) is serving as the designated hitter and batting in the cleanup spot for Saturday's game against the Rockies. Sheets returns to the starting lineup Saturday after missing the last two games due to a bruised left heel he sustained Wednesday against the Dodgers. The 28-year-old lefty pinch hit in the bottom of the sixth inning of Friday's 5-3 win over Colorado, reaching base on an intentional walk in his only at-bat. For the month of June, Sheets is slashing .257/.321/.419 with three home runs and nine RBI over 74 at-bats.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Not in starting nine

    Sheets (heel) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against Colorado. Sheets will be absent from the starting lineup for a second consecutive game since being removed Wednesday with a left heel contusion. While it's possible he wouldn't have been in the lineup even if fully healthy, Sheets should still be considered day-to-day.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Not starting Thursday

    Sheets (heel) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against Atlanta. Sheets was forced out of Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Dodgers with a bruised left heel and is considered day-to-day. The 28-year-old could end up filling more of a part-time role for the White Sox moving forward in the wake of Eloy Jimenez's recent return from the injured list, so Sheets may not re-enter the lineup for a few more days even if he quickly shakes off the heel injury.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: X-rays on heel negative

    X-rays on Sheets' left heel came back negative after he was removed early from Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports. The White Sox are now labeling Sheets' injury as a bruise, and he's considered day-to-day. It's possible the team holds him out for a game or two as a precaution, but he shouldn't be in line for an extended absence.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Managing injured heel

    Sheets was removed from Wednesday's game against the Dodgers due to a jammed left heel. The severity of Sheets' injury remains unknown, but he is being further evaluated, and the White Sox should offer an update on his status in the near future. The 28-year-old has been heating up at the plate recently, going 8-for-22 in his last six games heading into Wednesday's contest.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: On bench Monday, could sit vs. RHPs

    Sheets is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers. The lefty-hitting Sheets will hit the bench while the Dodgers send southpaw James Paxton to the mound. Sheets had started the previous five games while the White Sox faced off against right-handed pitchers, but he'll likely begin to sit out some of those matchups more frequently after Chicago returned Eloy Jimenez from the injured list Sunday. With Jimenez occupying the designated-hitter spot, Andrew Vaughn locked in at first base and Andrew Benintendi and Tommy Pham serving as the White Sox's primary starters in the corner outfield, all four of Sheets' avenues for regular playing time would seem to be blocked.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Heading to bench Sunday

    Sheets is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. With southpaw Jordan Montgomery on the hill for the Diamondbacks, the lefty-hitting Sheets will retreat to the bench. Korey Lee will get a day off of catching duties and will serve as Chicago's designated hitter in Sheets' stead. Though he remains the White Sox's preferred DH against right-handed pitching for now, Sheets could lose out on regular playing time during the upcoming week, when Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) will likely come off the injured list.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Idle Saturday

    Sheets is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Arizona. Sheets will get a day to recoup after going hitless in his last 15 at-bats. Korey Lee will shift to DH while Martin Maldonado fills in behind the dish.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Belts first career slam

    Sheets went 3-for-4 with a grand slam in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Red Sox. The 28-year-old slugger took Brayan Bello deep in the fifth inning, breaking a 1-1 tie and giving Sheets the first grand slam of his career. He's gone yard in back-to-back games and has four of his seven homers this season in the last 11 contests, a stretch in which Sheets is batting .282 (11-for-39) with 10 RBI.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: First homer since mid-April

    Sheets went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Monday against the Blue Jays. Sheets popped his fourth homer of the season and his first since April 17. He's struggled throughout May, hitting just .197 with seven RBI and five runs scored in 23 games. Positively, Sheets has collected six of those RBI in his last five starts and is striking out at just a 13.1 percent clip for the month.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Sitting versus lefty

    Sheets is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays. Sheets is hitting .188 with a .616 OPS through 16 games in May and will take a seat Tuesday with southpaw Yusei Kikuchi pitching for Toronto. Corey Julks will start in right field and bat fifth.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Resting against southpaw

    Sheets isn't in the White Sox's lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals. With southpaw Mitchell Parker set to start on the mound for Washington, the lefty-hitting Sheets will take a seat for the nightcap. Andrew Benintendi, Rafael Ortega and Tommy Pham will start across the outfield while Sheets rests.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Collects 12th RBI

    Sheets went 1-for-2 with a double, an RBI and a run scored Saturday against the Cardinals. Sheets opened the scoring with an RBI double in the first inning and also came around to score in the sixth frame after earning a walk to open frame. He remains a regular in the lineup, most often starting in right field, and has primarily settled into the third spot in the order. Sheets has hit well for much of the season, and he has at least one hit in 12 of his last 15 starts while batting .273 with four RBI and six runs scored.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Tossed in eighth inning

    Sheets was ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the top half of the eighth inning Monday against the Twins, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Sheets was unhappy with a called strike three and let the umpire know about it before exiting for the clubhouse. The 28-year-old went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts prior to getting ejected.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Forcing outfield rotation

    Sheets went 1-for-7 with a walk and a solo home run across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals. Sheets had been serving as the White Sox's primary designated hitter in the absence of Eloy Jimenez, while also picking up some playing time at first base. With Jimenez back in the mix, Sheets started both of Wednesday's games in right field, forcing Andrew Benintendi to the bench in one contest and Robbie Grossman to the bench in the other. It will take some additional time to see how the playing time sorts out in the team's outfield, particularly if Tommy Pham also reaches the big-league roster. For now, it appears that Dominic Fletcher may be the only full-time starter in the outfield.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Option for starts in outfield

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said Monday that Sheets could see some action in the outfield, James Fegan of SoxMachine.com reports. Sheets is one of the few White Sox players that's been hitting, so using him in the outfield would allow the club to keep his bat in the lineup even after the return of Eloy Jimenez from the injured list Monday. While he's a natural first baseman, most of Sheets' playing time at the major-league level has come in the outfield, so it's not foreign to him. He should receive fairly regular reps in the outfield versus righties while he's swinging a hot bat.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Has monster day in loss

    Sheets went 3-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, five RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Guardians. He also stole a base. Sheets had himself a day at the plate Wednesday, driving home the first run of the game with a double in the top of the first before coming around to score himself, putting Chicago up 2-0. He then launched a three-run shot in the third and another RBI double in the 10th to put the White Sox up yet again, though his incredible effort would still fall short in the loss. It marked Sheets' first three-hit game of the season and his third multi-hit game in his last six contests. He's now batting .360 in April with two homers, seven RBI and four runs scored.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Smashes solo homer

    Sheets went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Royals. Sheets accounted for the lone White Sox run Friday night when he crushed a Brady Singer slider to right field. The Chicago designated hitter's first homer of the season travelled 391 feet and would have left all 30 major league ballparks. The 27-year-old has been seeing regular playing time while Eloy Jimenez (left abductor) has been sidelined, and with Luis Robert (hip) now also potentially facing an absence, Sheets might have an even clearer path to at-bats.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Getting start at DH

    Sheets will start at designated hitter and bat fifth in Monday's contest versus Atlanta. Sheets will get his first start of the season as he fills in for Eloy Jimenez (adductor). He could see regular action against right-handers if Jimenez needs a stint on the injured list, but there's no indication yet whether that will happen.
