Outfielder Alejandro De Aza faces an uncertain future with the Chicago White Sox. He was the subject of some trade rumors this off-season. He was steady though unspectacular in 2013, but he got off to a smashing start on Opening Day for his 2014 campaign.
Facing Ricky Nolasco of the Minnesota Twins, De Aza went deep twice.
In 153 games last season De Aza hit 17 home runs and had a .728 OPS. It’s hard to imagine him becoming a different kind of hitter this season, of course, but this has to be a pleasant surprise to start the season for the White Sox, whether he is in their long-term plans or not.
