The Chicago White Sox might need to give them an MLB player in addition to prospects.

The Chicago White Sox needs a bigger bat in the outfield. Trading Leury Garcia as a part of a package might be worth it in addition to prospects so that Seattle has a position player in Haniger’s place. Garcia is currently the longest-tenured player in the Chicago White Sox organization which is nice and all but they would be better off moving him for a bigger bat.

Jonathan Stiever is the type of high ceiling pitching prospect that a team in Seattle’s position would be smart for taking a chance on. If they can develop him well, it could pay off nicely. He is currently listed as the White Sox number four prospect so you know that they think very highly of him as a right-handed talent. There simply isn’t enough room in the future rotation for them right now so trading him for help where they need it might be in the cards.

Tyler Johnson is also a right-handed pitcher but he is a little bit further down in the White Sox organization. He ranks as the 19th overall prospect in the White Sox organization. The Mariners, with this trade, would be adding two right-handed pitching prospects and a position player to play in the meantime. The White Sox are getting someone who could really help them for the rest of this season and maybe even beyond that.
