The Chicago White Sox could try to make a major splash for a big-time hitter.
The Chicago White Sox could really try to make a splash. Cody Bellinger had a tough year in 2021 but this is a guy who has had moments where he is incredible. After the year he had last year, people are talking about him like he is trash as if he wasn’t an MVP candidate like three years ago.
he still has a lot to offer which is why he should command a lot in a trade. Craig Kimbrel going to the Dodgers to replace Jansen is something that could really help them so letting go of Bellinger could help. There are plenty of players there that can make up for his offense.
Bellinger would play right field upon his arrival. That position belongs to Mookie Betts right now because of his arm strength but he can absolutely play that position in Chicago. He would fit in well on this White Sox lineup, which isn’t too shabby either.
In addition to Kimbrel, some good pieces might need to join him. Jared Kelley and Norge Vera are young pitching prospects that were acquired by the White Sox in different ways. They are both good and in prospect mode which is something the Dodgers need to look back at as well. If a trade like this were made, much like the last one, it would really benefit both teams.
