The first prediction that MLB Trade Rumors has for the White Sox is George Springer. It would be really nice to add someone like Springer for a variety of reasons. The first is his offense. The White Sox scored so many runs in 2020 and it is only going to get more prolific as the youngsters develop even more. Springer can hit up and down in the lineup and be productive no matter what. If the White Sox wanted to hit Springer seventh and keep Tim Anderson first, it would work. If they wanted to flip them, it would also work.

Of course, Springer will forever live with the sign-stealing scandal that accused (and eventually proved) the Houston Astros of using technology to steal signs. They went on to win the World Series in the year (2017) that they were accused of and a lot of people are angry with the MLB for not stripping them of that title. Well, as Springer moves on fans will embrace him if he continues to produce. His success in 2019 and 2020 suggests that he is a great baseball player without cheating.

Springer is also a fantastic right fielder. The White Sox have a clear need there as it is fair to assume that Nomar Mazara is not the answer. Mazara would make a fine bench player for the outfield but Springer is a starter through and through. His addition would make an outfield of Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert, and George Springer one of the most lethal in all of baseball. Hopefully, this is a prediction that comes true.
