1 player from each AL East team for the White Sox to trade for
The Chicago White Sox could take advantage of the Baltimore Orioles rebuilding.
The Orioles fanbase has not had much to cheer about the past couple of seasons. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Austin Hays, Trey Mancini, and John Means have emerged as legitimate candidates to make up the future core of the team.
However, that does not mean the Orioles will not try and flip some of their other assets. One player for the White Sox to go after is Cole Sulser, especially if they cannot resign Ryan Tepera.
Sulser is inexpensive with three more years of team control. Last season he posted an excellent 2.70 ERA in 60 appearances. Sulser specialty is left-handed hitters. Lefties hit just .143 with a .464 OPS against Sulser.
And that has been big for Sulser, who was lights out last year against He also showed a knack for high leverage situations locking down eight saves and six holds. His 1.12 WHIP and 10.4 K/9 don’t hurt either.
His career ERA is 3.18 which will play in any bullpen. Lined up with Aaron Bummer, Garrett Crochet, Kendall Graveman and Liam Hendriks the White Sox would figure to boost one of the most fearsome groups in the AL.
The Orioles have no need for good relievers so Sulser will be one of the first names on their trading block.
