2. Colson Montgomery

Colson Montgomery is someone that the Chicago White Sox could get a lot for.

The Chicago White Sox drafted Colson Montgomery with their first-round pick (22nd overall) of the 2021 MLB Draft. He is a shortstop out of Southridge High School in Huntingburg, Indiana. As of the latest MLB dot com update, he is the number one prospect in the White Sox system. 

This is a kid that bats left and throws right. That could be something that helps the White Sox if he ever does make it to the Major League Baseball field. He currently has an estimated time of arrival set in 2025. Three years could be just enough time to get this kid developed enough to play in the bigs.

With that in mind, the White Sox could consider moving him in the right type of trade. If they traded their number one prospect, that would mean that he is being traded for someone that can make an elite type of impact.

It would have to be an arm that can dominate hitters or a batter that can put runs up in bunches. We’ve seen World Series contenders make moves like this but it is always a bit scary. If you don’t at least win the pennant after a trade like that, it will always be a complete and utter failure. Still, this window won’t be open forever so it is something to consider.
