The Chicago White Sox are in a very unique spot. Their manager doesn’t do much to help them yet they still find themselves in first place with the best record in the American League. They also have some key injuries to some of the best young hitters in the world in Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert. Those guys are going to miss a significant amount of time which is a major blow to the team.
The Chicago White Sox should consider making a trade for someone like Mitch Haniger.
The White Sox are going to be able to get by without them for a bit but it would certainly be nice to see them add just a bit of help. That way when they come back they have even more depth for the playoffs. Mitch Haniger of the Seattle Mariners is someone who has often been considered “available” so far this season.
Every year, it seems like the Seattle Mariners get off to a decent start despite a lackluster roster and people wonder. Well, by now, they are usually cooled off and this year is no different. They are currently 21-23 but they are 3-7 in their last ten games. The hot start has clearly worn off over the past few weeks. They do, however, sit in third place because the Los Angeles Angels and Texas Rangers have somehow been even worse.
Mitch Haniger is a very good outfielder. He did not play during the short 2020 COVID-19 season so it is nice to see him back playing well this year. He currently has a slash of .256/,309/.543 with an OPS of .852. He has an impressive 12 home runs, 30 RBIs, and 30 runs scored. That type of power is perfect for the White Sox right now. These are three packages that might get it done.
