If the White Sox wanted to make a one-for-one type of trade for Josh Hader, they would really need to give up a big piece. Hader is one great pitcher as mentioned before and he would really add another huge arm to the back end of the White Sox rotation. If he joined guys like Evan Marshall, Aaron Bummer, and Alex Colome, it would become an even better bullpen which is extremely important in today’s MLB.
Dane Dunning went into the season as one of the White Sox top ten prospects. He made his highly anticipated MLB Debut a couple of weeks ago and then made his second career start on Sunday. He looked very good in both games and should be a big part of the White Sox future if they decide to never trade him. If they were to get Hader in a one for one trade, however, they would certainly need to give up a pitcher that is as good as Dane Dunning.
Dunning is already pretty low in the projected future starting rotation so maybe moving him for bullpen help would be a good idea. He would go to the Milwaukee Brewers and have a chance to be an impact starter for them at some point. It would certainly be cool to see him go to the Brew Crew where he can pitch close to home in the National League if he wasn’t destined to spend his career with the White Sox.
Josh Hader hasn’t been connected to the White Sox even a little bit. This is all a fun trade package to drive conversation but there is no doubt that this would be an idea that could really help out both teams. They are all unique trades that could fit different asking prices for either team which makes it even more fun to think about. The Brewers moving on from Hader would definitely be a blockbuster level trade so it should be exciting to see if they do it on deadline Monday.
