The Chicago White Sox have a lot of options in their starting rotation for 2020 and beyond. They have Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez, Gio Gonzalez, Michael Kopech, Dallas Keuchel, and Carlos Rodon in the mix to be a part of the team. Some of them might end up working out long term and some in the short term. There also might be some additions via free agency over the years that aren’t on our radar yet. The bottom line is that it seems to be taking shape for now.
With that said, that gives there room to trade some of the young pitching prospects. That could be a reason to move Dane Dunning. He one of the higher end pitching prospects in the organization. He has an extremely high ceiling so teams might be willing to give him a look. It might be worth looking at if you’re the White Sox looking to fill holes in a “win now” situation.
He was acquired by the Sox in the 2016 trade along with Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez that sent Adam Eaton to the Washington Nationals. It was a move that ultimately worked out for both sides in the end. The Nationals won the World Series with Eaton and the White Sox have a potential star in Giolito while Lopez continues to round out his game. This is a piece that if moved, you know the White Sox are getting back something nice in return because he is a great young pitcher. It would certainly be a good player that fills a need.
