Mitch Haniger would make a solid replacement for the Chicago White Sox.

The White Sox could use anyone to help them right now. It would be extra fun if they were able to get a semi-decent player like Mitch Haniger. Nobody can replace what Eloy Jimenez brings but Haniger might be able to help. He can play right field if they wanted to use Adam Eaton in left or they could try him in left if he was willing.

The Milwaukee Brewers made Haniger a first-round pick in the 2012 MLB Draft. He never played with them as he ended up with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Seattle Mariners via trade. In 2018, he was so good that he was an MLB All-Star and 11th place finisher for the American League MVP. In that season he showed that he had some power and could produce some runs.

Most of his career has come on a bad Mariners team so it would be interesting to see what he could do on a team like the White Sox. He didn’t play during the 2020 60 game season so you’d have to assume that he is fresh and ready to go at 30 years old. His help wouldn’t cost that much in a trade either as a couple of prospects should be able to get it done.
