PHOTOS: White Sox new spring training uniforms are awesome

If you were giddy about the start of spring training, you might be at another level after you see what the White Sox will be wearing in Arizona. 

MLB released photos of new uniforms for spring training for all teams and the White Sox got a new look.

A really awesome new look.

Check them out here. 

 

The retro "Batter Up" logo is back and it looks great. Other new additions to uniforms are Spring Training 2016 patch on the side of caps and the "Flex Base" jerseys are supposed to be 10-20 percent lighter. There's also league logos added to the other side of the hats and spring training designs detailed in the uniform number.

It doesn't appear the new gear is for sale just yet. So sit tight with your credit card in hand for now. 

And if you're (somehow) not a fan of this new look, you can also buy more White Sox gear here.

Jose Abreu has already begun mentoring Luis Robert

As the White Sox have added young Cuban stars in the making in Yoan Moncada and Luis Robert, Jose Abreu's long-term role on the team has shifted.

The 31-year-old first baseman has been looked at as something of a mentor for the two young Cubans. He seems to be delivering on that so far.

Abreu picked up Moncada from the airport when he first was called up to the White Sox last July. Now he's helping Robert in the batting cage.

The Cuban trio is expected to play a big part of the White Sox future in the coming years. 

Robert has already stated his goal of making it to the majors this year to join Abreu and Moncada, but that may be an overly ambitious goal. Either way, plenty of eyes will be on him throughout 2018 as he marches towards the White Sox roster and his Cuban teammates.
