White Sox: 3 relievers to acquire before the trade deadline
The Chicago White Sox could use a multi-inning stud like Michael Fulmer.
When Michael Kopech went to the rotation, the Chicago White Sox knew that they needed someone to be the new multi-inning superweapon. That was supposed to be Garrett Crochet with hopes that Reynaldo Lopez would also be able to help.
Well, Lopez has done amazing but is now on the IL and Crochet hasn’t pitched yet this season. Lopez is going to come back but they need another guy. There are plenty of options out there but a good one sits right there in the division.
Michael Fulmer was once a starter but he has been in the bullpen as a multi-inning guy this season and has been incredible. The White Sox could really use someone like him in the middle of the bullpen right now. With all the injuries that this group has sustained, they need a horse that can come in and eat innings effectively.
On days that he is available, he could literally be a one-man bridge from the starter to Liam Hendriks. The White Sox would have to get a division rival to trade him to them but that is not impossible, especially since the Tigers have been so bad this season and have no chance.
