The Chicago White Sox have some nice infielders they can send away for help.

It is hard to see Jake Burger ever playing third base full time for the White Sox. Yoan Moncada is going to be that guy for a very long time. He is an elite defensive player and his bat is as good as it can be right now. The sky is the limit for an MVP caliber player like this who is just getting started.

It is also hard to see Gavin Sheets ever playing first base for the White Sox for an extended period of time. That job belongs to Jose Abreu as long as he wants it. Once Abreu moves on, Andrew Vaughn will be the long-term first baseman.

Because of this, the White Sox would be smart to move them for help. Sending these two players away is giving away a lot of power potential which should intrigue a team like Seattle. They also each play corner infield positions which could really help a team that is trying to rebuild. Even if it is to add depth to the position, it is something to consider for the Mariners.

As long as Robert and Jimenez remain out without update, there will be rumors surrounding outfield help. Haniger is a player whose name has been in the mix for trades so far this season and the White Sox are definitely in that conversation now.
