The Chicago White Sox could make a big move involving Jonathan India.
The Chicago White Sox might be interested in taking some risks ahead of the trade deadline. They should make changes based on the fact that the way they do things now isn’t working.
Landing someone like Jonathan India would show that they still are trying to compete even though things aren’t looking great right now. He’d be the second baseman of the future.
Giving up on someone like Michael Kopech isn’t easy. He has the arm talent of an ace in this league but he isn’t putting it to use on a consistent basis. Like we’ve said about most struggling Sox players, a change of scenery might do him good.
Most teams may consider adding a left-handed power bat to come off the bench which is where Gavin Sheets could come in here. Paired with Kopech, he might be someone worth adding to a team like the Reds.
All of these trades would be a risk for both teams. However, good things can come of it for both of them. In all three of these packages, the Sox add a stud second baseman in exchange for a starting pitcher that can help the Reds.
