The Chicago White Sox have a lot of talent on their roster. Because of this, people expected them to be much better than they have been so far in 2022. It has mostly been a disaster this season and now they need change.
The trade deadline is coming up quickly and they need to make some moves. If they aren’t smart, they will find themselves on the outside looking in by October.
The trade deadline is sure to bring in some more pieces that can help the White Sox win more games as the stretch run begins.
If they are going to have some impactful change to this roster before it is too late, these three players need to be gone after the 2022 trade deadline:
Leury Garcia should have never been on the roster to begin with. He would probably be playing overseas or in the Minor Leagues if the White Sox didn’t offer him a three-year deal once the 2021 season ended. On a team with championship aspirations, he shouldn’t be playing.
Not only does he play as a utility player (which would be bad enough), he is in the lineup almost every single day. It is something that needs to change because Tony La Russa can’t stop using him.
If Garcia is gone after the deadline, it won’t be because he was traded. It would be because he finally had to go (DFA) because he isn’t good enough. If the White Sox make a move for a player who deserves the roster spot more, it could be the end of Leury’s White Sox career.
