3B/OF. Chicago Cubs. Kris Bryant. 17. player. 9.

Kris Bryant would make an incredibly positive impact on the Chicago White Sox.

It feels like a guarantee that the Chicago Cubs are going to move Kris Bryant. He is helping them get more for him by having a great start to the season but he only has this year left on his contract. If they don’t trade him by the trade deadline, there is the chance that he leaves to hit free agency and the Cubs get nothing. It is crazy that this is where the Cubs are at with Bryant but it has been trending towards this for over a year.

Bryant is probably the best hitter on the Cubs right now. He can hit for high averages and put together elite power numbers. That is something that any contender would be looking to add when the Cubs officially make him available (if he isn’t already). The White Sox could absolutely use a player like him for their run in 2021. They might even be interested in bringing him back on a nice contract if they acquired him.

It would also be fine to give up less for him and let him walk after 2021. Making him a left-field replacement for Eloy Jimenez would just be too perfect. Yoan Moncada is a better defensive third baseman than Bryant and very well could end up being a better hitter so he isn’t moving. Adam Eaton is in right so they might as well go for him in left if acquired. Of the three, Bryant fits in the best for sure.

Regardless, the White Sox would be able to save any of these guys if they actually wanted to win in 2021. They are all World Series champions and have a high pedigree which could help the inexperienced players that the White Sox have. There are a lot of good reasons to consider options like this.
