The Chicago White Sox are a great baseball team. They have been playing much better lately and finally look like that team that could win the division and potentially makes a deep playoff run. They are hoping that this success can be sustained for a very long time. It is fair t believe that they can.

In order to stay up at the MLB level, you need to have very good players all over the place. You also need to replace players if they leave or get hurt. Part of doing that is having a good Minor League system.

You also need a good Minor League system to make trades for MLB help that can give you what you need in the present moment. The White Sox could trade one of these three prospects if they feel the need to upgrade somewhere:

1. Jared Kelley

Jared Kelley is someone for the Chicago White Sox to consider trading away.

Jared Kelley was a high draft pick in 2020. The White Sox took him in the second round of the draft out of Refugio High School in Texas. He is a right-handed pitcher that is known for being an absolute fireballer.

Kelley was projected to be a first-round pick before 2020 but COVID-19 impacted the high school season a bit more than the college season so he fell a bit. The White Sox looked at both Kelley and Garrett Crochet (taken in the first round of the same draft by the White Sox) as future starters.

Kelley is 20 years old and now playing in Kannapolis of A ball. He is very good but it will be a while before he is in Major League Baseball. If the White Sox wanted to add a position player or another pitcher that can help right now, he is someone to consider moving. A rebuilding team would love to have him.
