The Chicago White Sox are a team that could use another bat due to some injury woes but they are much better off than their adversaries to the north. The Chicago Cubs have a terrible offense and they have struggled for the most part because of it. If the White Sox wanted to save any of their stars from the pending doom that the team is about to deal with, they might benefit from it as an organization. These are the three Cubs players that the White Sox should consider saving:
Willson Contreras would fit right in on the Chicago White Sox for 2021 and 2022.
The Chicago Cubs have a very good player in Willson Contreras. Unlike some of his other superstar teammates, he has one extra year left on his deal. He is an elite catcher that can also really hit. He is one of the most annoying players in all of baseball if he is not on your team but anyone would love to have him if they could. The White Sox would put him in an amazing position to get the most out of his prime.
Contreras has been involved in some scuffles so far this season. It makes you wonder if he is frustrated with the way things are going behind him but there is no denying that he is a wonderful baseball player. Adding him right now would really help the White Sox out in every way and it would give him another chance at a World Series.
Yasmani Grandal and Zack Collins currently handle the catching duties for the White Sox. If Collins had to go back in a trade, that would make a decent amount of sense for both teams as Collins has some upside himself. Grandal and Contreras switching off between catching and being the DH would make this White Sox lineup even more elite than it already is.
