The Chicago White Sox would love to add a very good right fielder via trade.

The Chicago White Sox could really use a full-time right fielder. When Luis Robert and Eloy Jimenez come back, you can assume that they will be the primary left and centerfielder. Even if they use Jimenez as a DH, Andrew Vaughn has been above average in left and will be an elite hitter. Adam Engel is a very good player but having him play right with some help would be ideal. Anthony Santander is a great option via trade.

Santander also has a bit of control left so he wouldn’t just be a rental either at 26 years old. He is arbitration-eligible in 2022 but he isn’t a free agent until 2025. If you insert him into right field right now, they are automatically a much better team.

In 2019 he had 20 home runs in only 93 games. That is a 34 home run pace in 162 games. In 2020, the short season, he had 11 in 37 games. That is a 48 home run pace over 162. Those are some really nice numbers for him. If he made his way to a contending team, you might find some of his numbers get even better. The White Sox also probably wouldn’t have to give up to much for him either so they should consider it if he is available.

The Orioles aren’t contending but they are doing a good job of showcasing some good players to trade-off for future parts. They have some very nice prospects as well which could make them a very impressive team in the not-so-distant future.
