The White Sox really gave an effort to trade for Joc Pederson in 2018. It looked like it was going to happen but it fell through at the last minute. The fact that they had an interest in him shows that they like him and would love to have him on the team. It would be so nice to have a guy like that come in and play right field for the White Sox. He is a left-handed hitter that would be awesome to have to play the position for the team. He is the type of guy that would be an everyday player for the White Sox.
He would be a great add via trade for the White Sox. He is a free agent in 2021 so it would be nice if the White Sox were able to get him an extension if they traded for him. He would be such a sweet addition to the great core of the White Sox. He hit .249 over 149 games played. He hit 36 home runs and had 74 RBIs with 83 runs scored. This level of production added into the middle of the White Sox lineup would go a long way. He played with some great players in Los Angeles and he would play with some great players in Chicago.
If Joc came to the Chicago White Sox they would almost certainly use him in a leadership role as well. He is older than a lot of the players on this young team. The White Sox need players like that. Pederson has also been a part of a few Dodger teams that have made deep playoff runs. That is an invaluable experience for a team that is loaded with players that have never even played in the playoffs.
