The Chicago White Sox are off to an up and down start to get the 2021 season underway. It is a very good team but they just need to get on a roll. Their depth is being tested thanks to some key injuries but they are talented enough to get through. With that said, they might be willing to add another bat to their group before the season gets too old. One player that might be in play is Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies.
Trevor Story would be a great fit with the Chicago White Sox roster right now.
The White Sox have an elite shortstop in Tim Anderson. That doesn’t mean that Trevor Story would be a bad fit just because he is also a shortstop. In fact, he would be a great addition to this team. He could play short and Tim Anderson could move to second base or vice versa but it is never a problem to have too many good bats there.
There is also the designated hitter aspect of it. Trevor Story is an incredible hitter. He has two Silver Slugger Awards in his career along with two appearances in the MLB All-Star Game. His entire career has come playing for the Rockies and he has been good every year. 2020 marked the third straight year where he finished top-12 in MVP voting for the National League. He is clearly looked at as one of the premier players in the league.
Colorado is one of those franchises that is selling off good players for pennies on the dollar. They already traded Nolan Arenado to the St. Louis Cardinals and he is one of the five best players in the league. The White Sox (or any team) might be able to get him for a fair return. These are three trade packages that might get it done:
