The Chicago White Sox could use some starting pitching. They don't need a lot of it as their rotation as it stands is pretty good but it could use one or two more studs. The off-season trade market might be a great way to grab one for 2023.

One team that might be active on the trade market is the Tampa Bay Rays. They could be active according to a lot of different rumors out there in Major League Baseball land.

A player that might be on the block but only for the right price is Tyler Glasnow. He is going to take a blockbuster type of trade package because he is one of the best pitchers in the world.

The problem with him is that he missed the entire second half of 2021 and almost all of 2022 because of Tommy John surgery.

Tyler Glasnow would be a perfect trade target for the Chicago White Sox.

You might remember that he pitched a game at Guaranteed Rate Field against the White Sox right after the "sticky stuff" ban and he really hurt his elbow. It was an unfortunate situation caused by the MLB but he is back and ready to be elite again.

If he joined the White Sox right now because of a trade, he would probably come in right away as the number two. We all know he has the potential to be the ace on any staff in the league but Dylan Cease was too good in 2022 to not give him that title of ace right now.

They are hoping for a bounce-back year from Lucas Giolito next season but he is very much thier number five right now. Another year of development from Michael Kopech and the always-steady Lance Lynn would make for a perfect three and four.

Making a deal like this would certainly not be easy but it would be well worth it. You add a guy like that to the mix and you can take a big step in the organization. It might be a pipe dream at this point in time but if he is out there via a trade the White Sox should consider it.
