The Chicago White Sox might go for some help in the outfield. Luis Robert just recently went down and is going to be out for a few months. That was after they already lost Eloy Jimenez for a few months as well. That is a lot of power going from the lineup that is impossible to replace.

They can, however, try to add someone that can help try to make up for it by committee. There are big names out there that may come to mind but there might be some underrated ones as well. These are the three outfielders that are underrated options for the White Sox to acquire via trade:

OF. Washington Nationals. Kyle Schwarber. 12. player. 90.

Kyle Schwarber would be a nice short-term fit for the Chicago White Sox.

The Chicago White Sox fans should be familiar with Kyle Schwarber as he was with the Chicago Cubs for a long time. He was one of their better players en route to winning a World Series. Amongst that World Series championship was a plethora of deep playoff runs. He is well seasoned in terms of playoff experience. That is something that would really help the White Sox.

Schwarber was let go by the Cubs in the offseason before he joined the Washington Nationals. Well, it doesn’t look like they are going to be a playoff team as they sit in the last place of the National League East. If they decide to start selling off guys who are on one-year deals, the White Sox probably wouldn’t have to pay that much to get him.

He isn’t a player that lights the league on fire anymore but he would be able to help the White Sox get through their injuries. His batting average isn’t that high but his OPS of .711 isn’t terrible. He is just an average hitter these days that has a lot of power. He can also play in the outfield which is something the White Sox needs.
