The Chicago White Sox like Colson Montgomery but they’d move him if needed.
The Chicago White Sox made a big commitment to Colson Montgomery when they took him with the 22nd overall pick of the first round in the 2021 MLB Draft. He is a shortstop that is hoping to become a really good Major League player one day.
He is currently the number one prospect in the Chicago White Sox system. No matter what, the Nationals are getting a team’s number one guy if they are giving them Juan Soto. They won’t care if he fits a need or not. They will just want the most talented player under any circumstances.
Montgomery is climbing the ladder of top baseball prospects. He seems to climb with every ranking that comes out as he is now listed in the top 100 for all MLB players. He is the only White Sox player (at number 92) to have that honor right now.
If they traded this guy, they would for sure be hoping that Tim Anderson signs a mega deal so that he can remain there for a while. Montgomery is still a few years away but he has the potential to be really good.
Again, the White Sox are highly unlikely to land a player like Juan Soto. He turned down a contract north of 400 million and the White Sox have never handed out a contract over 100 million. This is just to say which three prospects are guaranteed to go in the off chance that it did happen.
