Gavin Sheets is someone that the Chicago White Sox should try to keep around.
Gavin Sheets, like most players on the Chicago White Sox, had a tough start to the year. He was sent down to AAA Charlotte to figure some things out and he came back to MLB and started to get it going again. He is someone that the White Sox should really consider for the future.
Of course, Sheets is not an elite all-around player that you have to keep at all costs. Eloy Jimenez is more valuable than him for example. However, unless a big-time trade offer that you can’t refuse comes in from another team, you have to keep him.
This is not the type of player that you just move on from so you can make a change. He is a big-time power bat that comes from the left side. When he is feeling good, he can get you back in a game or pull you ahead with one swing.
As mentioned before, Jimenez has been the team’s best hitter since the All-Star break. Well, Sheets is probably the second-best hitter since that point so he should be happy with his performance.
He just kept grinding this season and now it is paying off for him. There is a chance that he ends up leading the White Sox in home runs which would be really nice for him. Again, unless the package is really beneficial to the White Sox, they shouldn’t just trade him to trade him.
