He saw a lot of playing time last year; he led off many games. In fact, he played CF in late innings because De Aza doesn't like playing CF (even though De Aza is a much better CF). When he started - he led off. And to be fair, your fourth OF SHOULD play. And that's why he shouldn't be our fourth OF.
We'll see how the other positions shake out.
Out of all the players in organized baseball, all the players in minor leagues,
MLB, Japan, etc.... The very best possibility for improving the White Sox, to put us into the playoffs and beyond turns out to be Dewayne Wise. Really?
This move smacks of defeatism. Or maybe they picked up Wise with intent to package him with others in blockbuster deal or something?
