Baseball fans are excited to see the next generation of players find their homes as the 2022 MLB Draft is scheduled to begin on Sunday, July 17. Each of the 30 teams will send representatives to attend the festivities and the Chicago White Sox have announced that a postseason legend will be representing their organization.

White Sox Draft News

The White Sox will be represented by 2005 World Series MVP Jermaine Dye this weekend. The retired outfielder played 724 games over five seasons in Chicago, racking up 164 home runs and 461 RBIs while also earning Silver Slugger honors in 2006.

Even though Dye played for four different MLB teams over his 14-year career, he achieved most of his success in a White Sox jersey. It's been 13 years since he last played for the organization, but that doesn't change the fact that he's still a fan favorite in the Windy City.

The White Sox hold the 26th overall pick in the first round of this year's draft. With the struggles they've had this season, it wouldn't be surprising to see using their top pick on a pitcher or, perhaps, a high-potential outfield prospect.

White Sox fans won't have to wait long to see Dye or their eventual first-round selection. Day 1 of the 2022 MLB Draft airs on ESPN and the MLB Network on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET.
