The Chicago White Sox have an excellent nucleus of players that they are using to build one of the best teams in Major League Baseball around. They have some powerful hitters such as Eloy Jimenez, Yoan Moncada, Andrew Vaughn, and Jose Abreu. That’s their nucleus of hitters.

Their nucleus of pitchers includes such talented guys as Carlos Rodon, Lucas Giolito, Dallas Keuchel and Lance Lynn. These are guys that you can count on to help win games and get the team out of trouble should they find themselves in it.

There are a few needs on this team that could be taken care of through a trade. Getting a good second baseman is one need that the White Sox have and they did it with Cesar Hernandez. They could also use some help at catcher, for the time being, although Yasmani Grandal is expected back sooner rather than later.

Bullpen help should also be on the list as the bullpen has struggled somewhat over the course of the season. That has also been addressed in the form of Ryan Tepera. If the White Sox see another opportunity there, they may jump and take advantage of it.

The Chicago White Sox are going to be trying to make some big trades before tomorrow.

Of course, to make a trade, you are going to need capital to trade with and the White Sox have plenty of that. However, there are some that they shouldn’t think of trading because it would completely destroy the team.

Some of the non-tradable players are obvious. Guys like Jose Abreu, Lance Lynn and Carlos Rodon should not be traded. But there are others who are not so obvious that the team should keep around to help them continue on their path to greatness.

As we prepare for Major League Baseball’s 2021 Trade Deadline, which is coming up this Friday, we will take a closer look at three players that the White Sox should keep. These are guys that they should not allow to go anywhere in any trade scenario. It’s important to keep them around in order for them to stay on track and hopefully win a World Series championship.
