Where do the best free-agent outfielders fit?

Chicago White Sox

The White Sox are a team that have done a lot to improve their team this offseason, most notably trading for 3B Todd Frazier and 2B Brett Lawrie. They were reportedly looking at Alex Gordon, before he signed with the Royals, and they have also been linked to Yoenis Cespedes in an attempt to further strengthen their offense. There were questions heading into the offseason about whether or not the White Sox were going to sell some pieces in an attempt to rebuild, or if they were going to go for it. They are clearly going for it, based on the moves they have made, and they are strong candidates to land a top outfielder on the free agent market.

Cespedes would make an already improved Chicago White Sox offense, a formidable one. It is believed that Cespedes and Jose Abreu (both Cuban) would work very well as teammates. A 3/4/5 combo of Cespedes/Abreu/Frazier would not be fun, to say the least, for opposing pitchers.
