Erick Fedde

Fedde was so bad for the Washington Nationals that he had to go to Korea to reclaim his career. He was supposed to be an inning-eater on the cheap. Now he is the rotation's stopper.

He has a 2.60 ERA, 3.86 FIP, and a 0.9 fWAR this season. Opponents are hitting .203 over his past three starts. The White Sox have won five of his last six starts.

Fedde is signed through next season on a team-friendly deal. With his outstanding production and being under team control, he will be very attractive on the trade market.

For a guy who had a high risk of not pitching well again in the majors, he is setting up to bring a solid return for the White Sox once they hopefully trade him. Although, it would be a good idea to maximize his return by pairing him up with Chris Flexen or Michael Kopech to get a return much like the organization got from the Los Angeles Dodgers for Lance Lynn and Joe Kelly.
