10 trades for the White Sox to consider at the 2022 Deadline originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Currently, the White Sox are 49-48 and are 3.0 games back in the AL Central. They've kept themselves within striking distance of the Twins, but are currently mired in the mediocrity they tried to avoid via the rebuild.
If the White Sox are going to find a way to win the division this season, Rick Hahn and the rest of the front office are going to need to make calculated decisions at the deadline this year.
This article is an attempt to look at some realistic options for the White Sox when adding over this next week, given the holes that they currently have.
The hope is to make these as realistic as possible – so, no, Juan Soto is not listed. At the same time, Rick Hahn has already identified the priority areas for the deadline: RP, 2B, and RF. The White Sox also need, if possible, to add some flexibility to their current roster.
An outfield that regularly contains Gavin Sheets, Andrew Vaughn, Eloy Jimenez, and AJ Pollock is, defensively, pretty suboptimal. If they can find a way to add to the weaknesses of that group without losing their strengths, the club can find further ways to improve.
Here are 10 players the White Sox should consider targeting with estimates on what the team might have to give up in return to acquire their services.
