If the Chicago White Sox landed Trevor Rosenthal, that would really be a treat for this fanbase. A team like the San Diego Padres wanted him in 2020 so they acquired him mid-season. That is pretty telling about his play because the Padres seem to only do smart things these days. Before going there, he had made stops with the Kansas City Royals, Detroit Tigers, Washington Nationals, and St. Louis Cardinals.
After playing for Detroit and Kansas City for a bit, he does have a bit of experience with the American League Central Division. The White Sox going back to some of these familiar places would be nice for Rosenthall if he likes that sort of familiarity. Most of his career was spent with the Cardinals as well so he definitely knows Chicago well.
In 2020, he was brilliant. He had a 1.90 ERA, 0.845 WHIP, 38 strikeouts, and 11 saves during the 60-game short season. When you have a 1.2 WAR over a 23.2 innings stretch, you know you had a great year. We don’t know for sure if the White Sox are done this offseason, but Rosenthal would be a fantastic late addition. The White Sox might want to add one more veteran reliever and all three of these guys can help, especially Rosenthal.
