Trade two would the Chicago White Sox looking to directly replace Luis Robert.

The Chicago White Sox are going to desperately miss Luis Robert. He won a Gold Glove at centerfield (a premier position) in his rookie season. He also showed that he is an absolute beast at the plate. He can hit for power and contact at will which will allow him to become one of the best players in all of baseball. The fact that he is so fast helps everything as well.

There is no replacing production like that but Aaron Hicks of the New York Yankees might be able to help that. If they were looking to let him go so some others can get playing time while adding some good prospects, the Yankees might be smart to do it. This one is more of a long shot because they also believe that they are World Series contenders but you never know their philosophy right now.

Micker Adolfo and Gavin Sheets are both nice prospects that can eventually become Major League Baseball players. Both teams are elite at the MLB level right now but the Yankees are much deeper in the outfield. That might cause the White Sox to do what they can to try and get one of them. They need to tread water while Robert and Jimenez heal so adding someone like Hicks would do that. If it only cost something like Adolfo packaged with Sheets, they should do it right away.
