The Chicago White Sox could take a few different players away from the Angels.

The Angles are looking to make a postseason run after adding Noah Syndergaard to the rotation. When you have two of the game’s best players in Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani there is no reason not to.

But when the Angels inevitably underperform once again they could be deadline sellers. If that is the case, David Fletcher would be a great acquisition for the White Sox assuming they don’t add an infielder and roll out Leury Garica as their everyday second baseman.

Fletcher can hit for average and would balance out a White Sox lineup full of power hitters. He brings the element of speed on the basepaths which the White Sox desperately need. Last season, Fletcher stole 15 bases.

He is a career .281 hitter. His worst season came in 2021 when he hit .262. However, before that, he hit .275, .290, and .319. He is a pretty smooth fielder as well. In four seasons, he has made just nine errors.

Fletcher is also versatile. His primary position is second base but he can also play shortstop, third base, right field, and left field. He is not the most glamorous name out there but he could fill a need for the White Sox.
