The Chicago White Sox have had a strange 9-9 start. They, along with many other elite teams across Major League Baseball, have a whole season ahead of them to get things just right. The White Sox have some things to work on but there are some players who are having great starts. There are a few players who are surprisingly good so far and can be used as trade bait. These are three White Sox players who have improved their trade stock:
The Chicago White Sox might be willing to trade a reliever for a bat later in the season.
The Chicago White Sox have a really good bullpen. They have nice advanced stats but some of the luck hasn’t really gone their way so far this season. The defense hasn’t been great behind them either to begin the year. Jose Ruiz, however, has been a really nice surprise so far. The hope is that he can keep it up for this team as they look to take the next step this season.
With some of the injuries that the White Sox have suffered so far this season, they might need to trade one of their good relievers to add something of need. If a team was willing to send the White Sox a Major League bat, Jose Ruiz would be a good reliever to send the other way if that is what the team wanted.
Jose Ruiz is probably the least recognizable name that the White Sox have in their bullpen but he has certainly been one of the best so far. That might be something to take advantage of as the season rolls along and they recognize a potential trade.
