The Chicago White Sox should still be looking to upgrade the right field position. If they made it where Adam Eaton was a bench option because they got someone better, that would significantly improve their depth even more. There are some teams out there that are looking to move money and aren’t charging that much to do so. If the White Sox wanted to take another run at a really good player, they have what they need to do so.

The Chicago White Sox and Colorado Rockies could come together and make a trade.

The Colorado Rockies are one of those teams where “nobody knows what they are doing”. They just made a blockbuster trade when they sent Nolan Arenado to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for a less than perfect return. Arenado is one of the best players in the sport and literally could be one of the best defensive third basemen who ever lived. When a team is sending away elite players on the cheap, you want your team checking in.

The fact that the Cardinals are also having the Rockies pay some of Arenado’s salary says a lot about the Colorado organization right now. The White Sox (or any team) would be foolish not to see what else they might be looking to give away. Charlie Blackmon is a player that the White Sox could really use from them.

If the White Sox added Blackmon to play right field, they would have the best offensive outfield in the American League. With Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert standing to his right and around him in the lineup, the sky is the limit. If they wanted to add a player like this, these are what the trade packages might look like:
