The Chicago White Sox would be a solid destination for Marcus Stroman as they look to give their young pitchers another veteran to look up to.

The Chicago White Sox just hopes to be playing baseball at this point. They are an organization that has been looking forward to baseball just as much if not more than any other team in the league.  Well, the biggest question mark for them is their pitching. They could have some guys come out of nowhere to have great years or they could underperform. Either way, we just want baseball back.

With that said, if they can add some veteran leadership on the mound at any point, there might be a name out there now for the taking. Marcus Stroman‘s name has been floated around as a potential name to be moved or hit free agency. He currently plays for the New York Mets after he was traded there by the Toronto Blue Jays during the 2019 season. He was great for them down the stretch but his time spent there might be less than we thought.

Could he end up being a guy that the White Sox go after? Anything can happen, but he would be a nice piece to add for this rotation. They have a bunch of guys who can be a part of the rotation that is already in the organization but a few of them are on the unknown side of things.

Lucas Giolito and Dallas Keuchel are all but locks to be a part of this rotation for a long time. Then they hope that guys like Michael Kopech and Dylan Cease have a spot in the long term. There are also some unknowns like how long Gio Gonzalez will stick around or if Reynaldo Lopez will stick in the rotation. There is also Carlos Rodon trying to come back from a long history of injuries. Stroman would be able to be the answer if something goes sideways for one or more of those pitchers.

Hot. The White Sox need their pinstripe vests back. light

Stroman has been a really good pitcher during his six-year MLB career. He has been an All-Star and won a Gold Glove. He has a career record of 51-47 with a 3.76 ERA, 695 strikeouts, and a 1.292 WHIP. He has a career WAR of 14.7 which is an average of 2.45 per year. He would be a solid addition to the White Sox rotation if they feel the need for one more proven arm.
