3. Gavin Sheets
Gavin Sheets is someone for the Chicago White Sox to consider trading.
Gavin Sheets is a very interesting Chicago White Sox player. In 2021, he was so good to kick off the AAA season that he earned himself a call-up to the big leagues. He was so good with the big club once he was called up that he never was sent back down.
He was unsurprisingly on the big league roster for Opening Day 2022. The White Sox needed a big-time left-handed power bat in the middle of their lineup and Sheets looked like he could be that guy. Unfortunately, he was brutal to start the season.
He was then sent down to AAA again where he fixed some things and he returned to the big leagues a new man. He started to hit well again and was looking very good down the stretch of the season. As a result, his future is very interesting to think about.
He is clearly a first baseman/designated hitter that doesn’t belong in the outfield. The White Sox have a cluster of those types and need to make some decisions. Trading Sheets could end up being the smart decision.
Out of everyone, he has the highest floor but the lowest ceiling. We know that he is going to mash some home runs but we don’t know if he’ll be able to ever do it for a full season as he was mostly only good in the second half of the 2021 and 2022 MLB seasons.
You have to be careful with a player like this but if the team feels that there are signs that he will regress, they should move him before that happens. The same goes for anyone else on the team that might have not been mentioned here.
