The Chicago White Sox has plenty of organizational depth to land someone like Mitch Haniger.

The Chicago White Sox would love to have someone like Mitch Haniger help them during their injured 2021 season. While Luis Robert and Eloy Jimenez remain out, they need as much help on offense as they can get. If you acquire Haniger, you can move Adam Eaton to centerfield and have him play right. There are even more options when Adam Engel returns. When the two stars return, you have as much depth as you need to win a World Series.

Micker Adolfo is great but he probably isn’t ready to help this current team in the absence of their injured guys. By the time he is ready, the outfield is probably too crowded for him anyway. It would be much smarter right now for the White Sox to use him as trade bait. He could go to Seattle and really thrive there if they continue to let him develop and eventually allow him to make his MLB debut.

Jimmy Lambert is a lot like Tyler Johnson. He is their 16th ranked prospect as a right-handed pitcher. You never know how these pitchers turn out which is why it is always smart for rebuilding teams to take a chance on them. This is the type of deal you make if the rebuilding team doesn’t need an MLB-ready player coming back.
