Chicago White Sox: Three Chicago Cubs free agents to add
The Chicago White Sox could look at a Chicago Cubs free agent list to improve their team.
The Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs are two rivals that play in the same city. They are in two completely different spots as organizations as one is on the rise while the other is on the down. The Cubs, despite being on the down, have some players hitting free agency that the White Sox might be able to find jobs for. There is nobody that is a gamechanger available but there are certainly a few potential depth pieces to consider.
The Cubs might be willing to let a lot of these guys walk because of the inevitable rebuild that is coming their way. Players like Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, Kyle Schwarber, and Willson Contreras all have only one or two more years left on their contracts. They might decide to keep one or two of them but there is no doubt that they are going to need to let some of them go and start again.
It has been a good ride for the Cubs but with Theo Epstein leaving after 2021, their time is basically up. The White Sox are on the rise so taking on some free-agent depth players is something they should absolutely consider. Their star-studded core is already in place so now it is about surrounding them with help.
Every team in the league has a few of those players available that can help and the Cubs are no different. Even if they trade any of their previously mentioned stars, the White Sox probably won’t be involved but they could look at one of these free agents:
