Luis Mieses and McKinley Moore might both be Chicago White Sox trade chips.

Luis Mieses is the No. 30 ranked prospect in the White Sox farm system. He doesn’t project to arrive at the Major Leagues until 2024 so the White Sox do not have a ton of use for him especially with Yoelqui Cespedes, Micker Adolfo, Blake Rutherford, and others ranked ahead of him.

Mieses has good arm strength and power. He primarily plays the corner outfield positions and logged 23 assists in 157 games over the course of his first three professional seasons. He is also a left-handed bat with a sturdy 6’3 180-pound frame, which may make him intriguing to the Diamondbacks.

McKinley Moore is a power pitcher that throws hard. His fastball touches 98 miles per hour. That is the reason the White Sox drafted him out of Arkansas-Little Rock. However, he struggles to throw strikes. He walked 64 batters in just 48 2/3 innings in college. Moore has the potential to be a hard-throwing reliever for a big-league club but will need to harness his fastball location before he can climb the minor league ranks.

Neither players project to be All-Star caliber players but it may be worth the lottery ticket for the Diamondbacks in a trade package.
