The Chicago White Sox are going to be trying to compete for a playoff spot this season, whenever it starts, and could end up being buyers on the trade market.

The Chicago White Sox find themselves in position to compete for a playoff spot this year, despite the season’s start date currently unknown.

As a result, they could end up looking to acquire reinforcements before the MLB Trade Deadline in order to make a push for one.

The White Sox definitely have the pieces to make a trade if they so choose with four top 100 prospects according to MLB Pipeline.

Obviously, expectations of the type of player they can acquire before the trade deadline passes have to be tempered, with many teams preferring to deal bigger fish in the offseason instead of mid-season as they hope for more suitors.

However, there should be plenty of useful pieces on the board that are either rentals for the remainder of the season or players who could spend a year or two in the South Side.

For the purposes of this article, though, I only included rental options.
