Player Outlook
Paul DeJong struggled mightily in 2023 while bouncing between three organization, hitting just .207 with a .612 OPS in 400 plate appearances with the Cardinals, Blue Jays and Giants. The veteran shortstop signed a one-year deal with the White Sox in November where he'll battle Nicky Lopez and Braden Shewmake for the starting role. The bat seems to be waning each year for DeJong, but he remains a solid defensive shortstop who ultimately may just be keeping the spot warm for top prospect Colson Montgomery's inevitable callup in 2024.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Clubs homer Tuesday

    DeJong went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Mariners. DeJong is up to 13 homers on the year, six of which he's hit over his last 11 contests. He went back-to-back with Andrew Vaughn in the third inning of Tuesday's contest, though that's where the White Sox's scoring ended. DeJong is up to a .240/.290/.490 slash line with 28 RBI, 28 runs scored, two stolen bases and 11 doubles over 62 contests while seeing a starting role at shortstop.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Keeps mashing

    DeJong went 2-for-3 with a double and a three-run home run during Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Red Sox in 10 innings. DeJong has been on a tear across the White Sox's last three series, launching five homers in nine games, and Sunday's multi-hit performance was his fourth during that stretch. The veteran shortstop is amidst a bit of a career revival during his first season in Chicago, slashing .238/.287/.482 -- each mark of which would be his best since 2020.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Four homers in eight starts

    DeJong went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Red Sox. DeJong provided some insurance with a home run in the seventh inning, his 11th of the season and fourth in his last eight starts. He has only seven total hits in that span, illustrating his dependence on the long ball to provide any fantasy value. Overall, DeJong is hitting .234/284/.463 across 204 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Pops 10th homer

    DeJong went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Cubs. DeJong is hitting for power with three homers over his last five contests, though he's gone a modest 4-for-18 in that span. The shortstop is up to 10 long balls this season, just four shy of matching his total from 112 contests in 2023. DeJong has added a .226/.276/.446 slash line, 21 RBI, 23 runs scored and two stolen bases over 56 games. He's not a particularly well-rounded hitter, but he's done enough to maintain a starting job.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Heating back up

    DeJong went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI on Sunday against the Brewers. DeJong began the day with a sacrifice fly in the first inning and popped a leadoff homer three frames later. He went deep four times in a 12-game span through mid-May and has now gone yard twice in the last three games. DeJong has a 34.2 percent strikeout rate across 184 plate appearances this season, which will prevent consistent production, but he's hit .245 with a .766 OPS and six home runs since the start of May.

In the 10 games since, he's hit just .182 with a 35.1 percent strikeout rate. Nevertheless, DeJong is locked into a near everyday role at shortstop and has maintained .202 ISO with a 103 wRC+ across 176 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Goes deep again Wednesday

    DeJong went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run in Wednesday's 4-1 victory versus the Rays. DeJong accounted for half of Chicago's runs with his two-run blast to left field in the fifth inning. It was the second straight contest with a long ball for the veteran shortstop following a 16-game homerless drought. DeJong has multiple hits in three of his past four games and has gone 6-for-15 with four RBI, five runs and four extra-base hits over that stretch.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Pops fourth homer

    DeJong went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Rays. The veteran shortstop snapped a 16-game homer drought with his seventh-inning shot off Zach Eflin, but it was all the offense the White Sox could muster. DeJong had a brutal start to the season, but has begun to provide some consistent production over the last couple weeks, batting .263 (10-for-38) over his last 11 contests with three doubles, four RBI and six runs, but his 1:13 BB:K over that stretch highlights how quickly even that moderate level of success could evaporate. On the season, DeJong is slashing .228/.276/.435 with four homers and eight RBI.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Hitting sixth in return to lineup

    DeJong (arm) will start at shortstop and bat sixth in Monday's game against the Twins. DeJong went unused in Sunday's 8-2 loss to the Phillies after being hit in the left arm by a pitch a day earlier, but his absence for the series finale in Philadelphia might have been precautionary more than anything.

DeJong entered the day with a .618 OPS through 13 games this season, but the five-hit barrage raised his season slash line to .275/.293/.600.
