Some position players could get Andre Benintendi to the Chicago White Sox.

Trade Two

There could be a world where the Red Sox want position-playing prospects for Andrew Benintendi. The White Sox wouldn’t trade Andrew Vaughn or Nick Madrigal and they are the only two non-pitchers in their top seven prospects so that leaves Gavin Sheets and Micker Adolfo. The Red Sox would be wise to go for players like these two if they are going to trade Benintendi. It really wouldn’t hurt the White Sox and their future plans all that much but it could really help Boston add some young depth to their organization.

Micker Adolfo is listed as the White Sox number eight prospect. He is an outfield prospect who could eventually grow into a guy who can play the position for them in the place of Benintendi. They also might not have Jackie Bradley Jr. for much longer and Mookie Betts is already gone. They really might be smart to start looking to fix their outfield and Adolfo has a high enough ceiling to take a chance on.

As for Sheets, he is a guy that can play first base and right field. He is the White Sox number nine prospect after they drafted him in the second round of the 2017 MLB Draft. He could add some much-needed depth to Boston’s organizational infield. With Jose Abreu already there winning MVPs and Andrew Vaughn on the way, it doesn’t seem like the White Sox are going to need a player like him anymore.
