The Chicago White Sox and the rest of the MLB have the trade deadline looming, and there are some players that might be traded by then.
The Chicago White Sox have done some great things this season. They have made tremendous strides from where they were at this time last season. They are a young team loaded with a few guys that are going to be complete studs. They also have organizational depth at many positions and are hoping that they all come together someday to form a championship-caliber team.
Part of the process of getting to where they are right now was trading away valuable pieces that were not part of the future for things that will help them in the future. Multiple trades have occurred since the end of the 2016 season when the White Sox rebuild officially began. Now those trades along with some pretty good drafting and international free agent luck, have turned this team into one that people see as dangerous moving forward.
They are not going to make the playoffs this year so it might be time to make another trade. There are some very good pieces on this team that you can argue are not a part of the future, and if the right package is presented for one of these players, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if Rick Hahn pulls the trigger.
There are some really good prospects in this organization, and trading some of the guys who are great players that are not going to move the needle next year or beyond. These trades usually happen in favor of a team looking to win right now. The good team gets a player that helps them succeed right now and the non-playoff team moves on from a guy they don’t see coming back in exchange for prospects. These three players make the most sense as guys the White Sox could say goodbye to:
