The Chicago White Sox would be very wise to look into Trevor Bauer’s availability.
The Chicago White Sox are one good baseball team. They had big expectations going into the season and have lived up to them so far. They are going into today’s trade deadline with a 21-13 record which is good for a two-way tie with the Cleveland Indians for first place in the American League Central division. The other Ohio team, the Cincinnati Reds, haven’t quite lived up to big expectations so far this season and that might cause them to make a few trades.
At 15-19, they sit in fourth place in the National League Central. They have one of the worst team batting averages in the National League which has them looking like a team that isn’t even going to sniff the playoffs. It is sad because they have a really nice roster on paper but it doesn’t look like it is going to work this year.
That might cause them to move on from a few players. One of those guys has to be Trevor Bauer. He is a fantastic pitcher but he is only signed through this 2020 season and could move on after this year. He would really make a difference on a team that has hopes of going to the postseason with intentions of making a deep run.
If the White Sox added Trevor Bauer to join their rotation with Lucas Giolito, Dallas Keuchel, and Dylan Cease for the rest of 2020, it would certainly be a sight to behold. With him on an expiring deal, it probably wouldn’t cost as much as it would if he had a lot of team control but you never know. These three packages might be enough to get it done:
