The Chicago White Sox have already used Danny Mendick at the MLB level. He is a fine baseball player that can play a few different positions. He is listed on the White Sox current depth chart as a backup at multiple infield positions. He is a good utility infielder that can come in in different situations. He would be a good player off the bench on teams that are very deep. Well, the Astros would be considered one of those deep teams that could use a guy like him.
Micker Adolfo has yet to reach the MLB level. He has been with the White Sox organization for a long time now. He was 17 when he joined and now he is 23. If he is never traded, there is still a chance that he sees time in an impact role on this team. However, if they needed to move him to get a player like Springer, it would be totally worth it.
Mendick and Adolfo might have different ceilings but they would both be welcomed tools to a team like the Houston Astros that might need some extra help over the next few seasons. There are going to be some natural departures over the next season or two, especially after the scrutiny they have been dealing with in recent months.
