The Chicago White Sox could absolutely look for something from the champs.

Out of every team in the division, the Braves are the only one I can’t see the White Sox making a deal with. The Braves are fresh off a World Series championship and the White Sox don’t have anything to offer that would be much use to them in the 2022 season.

Everyone can use pitching so they could be interested in Craig Kimbrel. As for the White Sox, William Contreras could be an option. William is the younger brother of Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras. The White Sox needs to solidify the backup catcher position and bringing a 24-year old Contreras into camp to compete for the job isn’t out of the realm of possibilities.

The Braves already have Travis d’Arnaud as their starter with Manny Piña and Chadwick Tromp on the 40-man depth chart. Last season, he got 163 at-bats and hit just .215 with 8 home runs. However, there is reason to believe he has potential.

He is highly decorated while making his way up through the Braves farm system. He was an APP Post-Season All-Star in 2017 with the Danville Braves. In 2018, he was named a SAL Post-Season All-Star as well as a MiLB.com Organization All-Star for his work behind the plate.

The following season he earned the title of FSL Mid-Season All-Star while he was with the Florida Fire Frogs, who may be the coolest name in the minor leagues.

Prior to the 2019 season, Fangraphs rated him as the 55th overall prospect in baseball so he could be worth a roll of the dice for the White Sox.
