The Chicago White Sox are pretty deep at catcher. They have Yasmani Grandal and James McCann there ready to go. That means that there isn’t really much of a place for Zack Collins in the lineup right now. McCann and Grandal are all better than Collins at this point. He might be able to elevate his game in the future but the White Sox has their catching set.

Grandal is there for a long time so he is going to get a bulk of the starts. McCann is just signed for this year but he could absolutely be in play to come back if he continues to be awesome this year. Grandal was given the biggest contract in the history of the White Sox so he is going to be the guy for at least four years. By that point, Collins will probably want to be a starter somewhere if he proves himself.

Well, this team might be it for him or it might not. They do, however, need more pitching. That is why moving Collins for a good starter would really go a long way. He was a first-round pick so you know that the talent is there. For that reason, a team might be willing to take a chance on him and give him a lot of playing time.
