Viable Trade Candidates That Wont Cost Anderson or Fulmer?

Recommended Posts

Not sure I see the Sox trading for Frazier or signing Upton/Cespedes unless the prices come down, so who are some viable trade targets for the White Sox that wouldnt cost them Tim Anderson or Carson Fulmer? A name I've been interested in is Martin Prado. You'd only be trading for a year of him so the price wouldnt be all that high, solid OBP that could fit in the 2 hole, low K%, excellent defensively at 3B, could be a real nice table setter for Abreu, has some versatility in that he can play 2B and 3B as well....I think he would present a nice option for the Sox.

He would cost both Anderson and Fulmer, and likely more

He is an interesting candidate to see what would happen if was playing every day again.

Can Ethier still play CF 100+ games?

 

Not sure we'd want to keep moving Eaton from a corner to CF and back again on a daily basis.

I think Ethier makes some sense. Not sure what he would cost , maybe EJ/reliever/ Danish?

 

Eaton LF, Thompson CF, Ethier RF with Avi as his platoon partner could work.

He's not advocating he would trade Anderson for Ethier.

 

The question is, trade options that wouldn't cost Anderson or Fulmer.

I would think Blackmon and Dickerson wouldn't cost the likes of Anderson/Fulmer

 

This is my top answer right now. They might want a little more for Dickerson since he's younger, but Blackmon should definitely be a target for us. Left handed, should be above average in LF defensively, good speed, has shown good OBP skills, and is still arbitration eligible until '18. If the Rockies would take something like Montas, Engel, + a C level pitching prospect (Leyer?) I would definitely do it. I know they are coveting young power arms and would like to unload an OF so it all much a lot of sense to me.

I don't want Ethier at all unless the Dodgers took ate at least half of his contract.

Even at half it is not worth it.

A few possible cheaper alternatives. Chris Heston of the Giants could be picked up on the cheap with them just signing Cueto. Rob Refsnyder from the Yankees becomes a spare part with Castro being signed or Hanser Alberto at Texas looked useful. All are young and could be picked up cheaper than Montas or Fulmer, I reckon.

Pick up Chris Carter for nothing. He'll hit 25ish. Let him DH

Sure he'll K a lot, but so will the elite, the greatest, Todd Frazier. Meawhile, we can get another year of development from Sanchez, Thompson and whoever our SS is.

 

I'm not interested in any of these guys who will require our 2nd tier prospects either.

You can add Todd Frazier or whomever, and this is a 80-84 win team on paper....less if the OF defense stays the same as it is.

 

Refsnyder can't play defense. find someone who comes real cheap like Lawrie or Carter.

Blackmon had a hell of a season last year. Not sure he will come as cheaply as some of you might think...

Blackmon scares me. Guy had a .695 OPS away from Coors last year and in his all star 2014 he hit .617 away from Coors.
