Staying in the nation’s capital, Tanner Roark is the odd man out in the Nationals rotation after the addition of Max Scherzer.

Last year was Roark’s first full season as a starter and he impressed, pitching to a 2.85 ERA and racking up 138 strikeouts in 31 starts. Roark is only 28 years old and still has a few years of team control left.
Once again, Carlos Sanchez could be one piece in a potential package with the White Sox also throwing in RHP prospect Chris Beck.
The name isn’t as intriguing as Fister, but Roark could become a cornerstone in the White Sox rotation for the next few years.
Now is the perfect time to grab him, as the Nationals don’t necessarily need his services and he could end up being a steal for the South Siders.
