The Chicago White Sox went into deadline week hoping to make some deals that would solidify them as the favorite to win the American League Central Division. Beyond that, they want to have a chance at the American League pennant. They weren’t blessed with health in 2021 but they have made the best of it with what they have.

They knew that they have performed well enough without some of their big players being there. They also knew that if they got healthy and made some more additions, they would have a serious chance this year. Of course, now they are starting to get healthy and the trade deadline was a big day on the calendar for them.

We know about the players who have stepped up this year. There have been some expected stars and some unexpected stars. Either way, we know that the White Sox had the starting pitching to win a lot of games and the rest of the roster was coming along. There have been some moves that they have made that should now have them ready to go for the big prize.

The White Sox haven’t been the only active team so far this season either. There are a lot of good teams that got a lot better and there are some bad teams that made themselves worse. All that matters, however, is that the White Sox did what they needed to do in order to improve their chances.

The Chicago White Sox have made some really nice trades so far this season.

Each move they made this week will have its pros and cons. We can believe that each trade certainly has more pros which is exactly what the White Sox needs right now. These are the grades that each deadline week trade made deserves:
