3) Tommy Pham has given the White Sox an early trade chip

It’s not all misery for former Mets. Tommy Pham, who had to wait until the regular season started to get a contract, landed with MLB’s worst team. The Chicago White Sox were spiraling but they’ve been a bit better since he arrived. Battered by injuries, he’d ironically enough replace Kevin Pillar on their roster.

Pham has already secured as many plate appearances as Vogelbach, stepping up 33 times. He has the same number of doubles, 2, but has sprayed 7 singles and a home run in between to go along with it. He’s now slashing .323/.362/.484 on a team getting clobbered on a regular basis.

The White Sox have ineffectively built a team with a couple of former Mets. Danny Mendick is now playing third base for them regularly in the absence of Yoan Moncada. Rafael Ortega has found his way into the outfield mix. Chris Flexen has been taking the ball every five days without a whole lot of success. Then there’s Dominic Leone in the bullpen, too.

On the Southside of Chicago, even noted Mets killer Paul DeJong is there. Only Pham seems to be doing anything of note.

From the moment the White Sox signed him, it was clear Pham was headed toward becoming a top trade candidate this summer. With the Miami Marlins already opening up the door and the White Sox buried this early, Pham is already on his way into another uniform. Pham has been traded four times in the middle of the year. This season should be the fifth.
