Downside To Each Team’s Biggest Free Agent Signing: American League

Chicago White Sox: Melky Cabrera
Cabrera fits in very well with a White Sox team that is much improved on paper but should Chicago be fighting for a wild card spot or even the division title in September, Cabrera might struggle to produce late in the season.  While a PED suspension ended his season early in 2012 and a knee injury shut him down in 2013, Cabrera got his first taste of September baseball in a while last fall and hit just .143 that month while also hitting around 30 points below his season average in August as well.  If long seasons are now a problem for the veteran outfielder, fans on the South Side might not like him too much in a pennant race.
