The Chicago White Sox can combine the duo of Micker Adolfo and Matthew Thompson together to give the Cubs for Kyle Schwarber. Obviously, these are all makeup trade scenarios but anything can happen at any given time, especially with the circumstances we are living in today. These tough times might cause teams to sell low for a while but adding Adolfo or Thompson for Schwarber isn’t necessarily selling low for the White Sox.
Adolfo is the White Sox number eight prospect and Thompson is the number seven prospect. That is a good haul for a team that clearly needs to move on from some players in order to shed some salary. Adolfo might be able to fill a future hole in their outfield if Ian Happ and Albert Almora don’t work out along with moving on from Schwarber.
Thompson is a right-handed pitcher that the Cubs could really use in their organization right now. Of the top four pitching prospects in the White Sox system, they are all right-handed. That could be why one of them is expendable and Thompson is no exception. There are no guarantees that any player named here is going to get moved any time soon but it could happen. The White Sox have a band-aid at the designated hitter spot in Encarnacion but Schwarber might be a nice full-time replacement, despite what some fans might think.
