The San Francisco Giants might become sellers as a result of their recent slide. In 2021 they overachieved and in 2022 they underachieved.

As a result, it might be time to hit the reset button as they head down the stretch of this season. They have some players that might interest other teams still in it.

The Chicago White Sox, despite their own struggles, are much closer to being a division winner than the Giants are. As a result, they could make a move.

The Giants have a few players that might interest the White Sox but one of them is Carlos Rodon. If he were to come back to his old club, the trade might look like this:

The Chicago White Sox would love to add Carlos Rodon back. They should consider it even if it means that they are giving up some quality Minor League players that may or may not be good in the big leagues.

Lenyn Sosa made his Major League debut earlier this season but he jumped up from AA. That was probably a mistake as he struggled at the big league level and is now struggling in AAA. All of that is expected so he will still be a good player but the White Sox can still think about moving him.

The Giants might like the fact that he was so good in AA to deserve that call-up but they would probably keep him in AAA for the rest of the year. Adding prospects like that is never a bad idea when you are selling.

Kade McClure is the 27th-ranked prospect in the White Sox system so he is someone that would be a throw-in to see if the Giants can get anything out of him. It isn’t a huge haul but not many teams are overpaying for someone who may opt-out.
