The Chicago White Sox are a very good team. They should already be considered one of the legit powers in the American League. They will have a stranglehold on the American League Central Division for a few years while the other teams try to catch up.
Even if one of those teams does catch up, that doesn’t mean that the White Sox are going anywhere either. The playoffs are probably going to expand at some point so it will be interesting to see how it all shakes out.
Adding another elite player certainty wouldn’t hurt the team by any means, especially one that would fill a position of need. Right field is one of the major issues and there are a few different people that could fix this problem.
Juan Soto is one of the best outfielders in the game and he could make any team in the league better as he is one of the five best players in the league. His name comes up because he has been in the news lately for turning down a 13-year deal worth 350 million from the Washington Nationals.
That is a lot of money but there is a lot that goes into that decision of his. For one, he is a Scott Boras client which typically means the player will try to earn as much as possible. It also probably means that he doesn’t want to commit to a team that is in the early stages of the rebuilding phase.
The Chicago White Sox would be wise to consider Juan Soto if he is out there.
At 23 years old, he already brings World Series-winning experience along with outstanding ability. He came in second place for the NL MVP with his 7.1 WAR. In the unlikely scenario that he actually does become available on the trade block soon, the Chicago White Sox should absolutely consider him in a deal like this:
