The Chicago White Sox can headline a trade like this with one of their stars.
Yoan Moncada is an extremely important player for the Chicago White Sox. He is the face of the rebuild as he headlined the return in the Chris Sale trade back in 2016. However, if the opportunity to get Juan Soto presents itself, you pretty much have to do whatever it takes to get him.
Sending Yoan Moncada back in this deal would be tough but it would be worth it. He can go there and play third base or even transition back to second base depending on their needs. He would provide them with a solid bat at the top of their order and stellar defense in the field.
Jake Burger and Colson Montgomery are both former first-round picks of the White Sox. Each of them has a tremendous chance to be impact players at the Major League level. Washington is looking for young players like that, especially if they can’t get Soto (who is also a really young player) signed.
Oscar Colas is the new White Sox prospect that they acquired in international free agency. He has all of the tools to be an impact player as well which should make him good trade bait if they ever have an opportunity for something big. He would make any team’s farm system better right away.
Of course, all of this comes from the fact that Soto denied a long-term deal worth 350 million dollars. The Nationals already let Bryce Harper walk for nothing so you would think that they don’t make that mistake twice. This time around they don’t have a World Series caliber team either. If this ever becomes a possibility, the White Sox better be involved.
