62. . OF. Seattle Mariners. Mitch Haniger. 17. player

Mitch Haniger would thrive playing for a team like the Chicago White Sox.

Mitch Haniger has spent most of his career playing in the Seattle Mariners organization. He is a great player that is now 30 years old. There is a good chance that he wants to win a World Series and the White Sox would probably present him with the best opportunity to do it. The Mariners got off to a very good start but have come down to earth a little bit. They are 4-6 in their last ten.

If they continue to fall down in the standings like everyone expects them to, you can probably expect them to trade Haniger. The White Sox would be smart to go after him now while they need someone like him. He isn’t as good as Robert or Jimenez but he would bring a very good bat in to replace them in the meantime.

Going into Monday night’s action, Haniger was slashing .269/.311/.546 for an OPS of .857. Those are some really nice numbers that the White Sox would love to have right now. He also has a bit of power. His seven home runs, 21 RBIs, and 19 runs scored prove that his bat is very valuable. He also can play the outfield which is exactly what the White Sox needs right now.
