We are more than halfway through June and the Chicago White Sox are 28-36 and 10 games out of first place in the division and 6.5 behind the 2nd wild card leader. They are by no means out of either race, but time is not on their side with just a little over half a season to be played.

With that in mind maybe the Sox say this isn’t their year and they throw in the towel on 2015 and build for 2016.

Who could they trade that would make this team better for the future and who has value that teams would want?

There are plenty of assets on this team that could be traded and while some have seen their value diminished due to poor performances in 2015 their overall track record of success should allow the Sox to recoup maybe 80 or 90 cents on the dollar.

We will take a look at five guys who I think the Sox should show some inclination to trade as well as the teams that may show interest and the players they may be willing to part with to get a deal done.
