Chicago White Sox

It’s safe to say that the Chicago White Sox are not making the playoffs. This doesn’t take them out of the running to buy some controllable assets at the trade deadline.

The White Sox are trying to rebuild and are sitting on a boatload of talent with 8 out of the 100 top prospects in MLB. This is tied for the most among the 30 MLB teams. Prospects are nice. Proven MLB-talent is better.

Their top pitching prospect Michael Kopech should see the big leagues sooner rather than later. So that he’s not alone, the White Sox may be interested in parting ways with a young catcher to obtain another live arm for their rotation.

Zack Collins is an interesting name for the Mets to keep their eye on should they get a call from Chicago. Collins the 23-year-old catcher out of Miami was drafted in the first round of the 2016 draft. The Mets have always had a revolving door at catcher ever since Mike Piazza said “so long.”

Even though the Mets have catchers at the moment, it’s not certain any are here to stay.

Collins had a rough 2017 only hitting .224 and an OBP of .370. At the Double-A level this year, Collins has put together an impressive OBP of .427 as he has managed to work 65 walks in 66 games played.

The power numbers are also present as in 2017 he hit 19 home runs and drove in 53 runs. Through 216 at-bats in 2018, he has hit 9 home runs and drove in 34 runs.

Other names to keep an eye on from the White Sox that may be available is starting pitcher Dylan Cease. Cease is the number four prospect for Chicago. Unfortunately for him, he has had a rough time in Double-A.

Before these struggles, he was able to post a 9-2 record with a 2.89 ERA for in High-A with good strikeout numbers.

There are many reasons to trade Syndergaard. There are just many, maybe more, to keep him.
