The Chicago White Sox could give up a huge haul to land Jazz Chisholm Jr.
The Chicago White Sox has a lot of time and money invested in Yoan Moncada. He is the face of the rebuild as he was the headlining piece (number one baseball prospect in the world) of the Chris Sale trade. Everything changed the moment he made his MLB debut.
Unfortunately, he has been a very good player at times but he has been very inconsistent. He takes a lot of heat for the way he plays, in particular the production at the plate. He is an elite third baseman when it comes to defense but that isn’t enough for people to love him.
Moncada has a lot of physical tools but he doesn’t get the most out of them most of the time. That might be why the White Sox try to trade him in a deal that gets them something they need. They plenty of options to play third base in Moncada’s place.
Sending him to Miami along with prospects like Yoelqui Cespedes and Norge Vera for Jazz Chisholm Jr. could really help the White Sox take that next step. It is a large haul for the Marlins but they would have to decide if it was worth it for Chisholm Jr. For the White Sox, it is something to consider because of how close they are to being a World Series threat.
