The Chicago White Sox are looking to make some big changes to their roster during the offseason. After going 81-81 in 2022, they were one of the most disappointing teams in the league from beginning to end.

Now, they are looking for a new manager as they head into the 2023 season. Tony La Russa is gone and it is time for the White Sox to replace him with someone much better. They sit as the only team now without a manager.

Once that happens, they will shift their focus to the roster as they try to improve it going into the next season which is sure to be loaded with pressure.

If they are going to trade some players for help across the roster, they might want to move on from these three before they fall off a cliff:

1. Aaron Bummer

The Chicago White Sox should consider trading Aaron Bummer at this point.

The Chicago White Sox have gotten some great years out of Aaron Bummer. He has been very good during his time with the team. He has had some ups and downs of course but has mostly been up. His role with the team always seemed to be fulfilled well as long as he was healthy.

However, Bummer relies a lot on his sinker fastball. When that isn’t right, it has the potential to be a bad luck pitch for the Chicago White Sox. It can create more infield singles that lead to bad things for the team.

If they want to avoid this becoming a long-term problem, they might want to trade him before he falls off a cliff. If the command comes down with that pitch, teams are going to tee off. Until then, he is very good so a team might give something of value for him.
