Ian Happ is someone that makes a lot of sense for the Chicago White Sox.
Of all the players that the Chicago Cubs are going to be selling, Ian Happ is probably the one that makes the most sense for the Chicago White Sox. There are a lot of extremely injury-prone outfielders on this team so Ian Happ would be perfect at this point.
He can play all three outfield positions if needed which would be extremely nice for the White Sox. It isn’t like this is some bench utility piece either. He is just getting back from the All-Star Game where he played for the National League All-Stars.
Happ would come to the White Sox and make an immediate impact. He would gel so nicely in this lineup as they try to get really hot offensively down the stretch. It is a no-brainer for Rick Hahn to call the Cubs and see what it would take for them to get Happ.
It isn’t like they are getting the farm from any team for Happ but they could get some really good players. Romy Gonzalez is someone that has made his Major League debut and has been really good in the minors this year. Adding Kade McClure along with him could get the deal done but even if it takes more, the White Sox should consider it.
