After a disappointing first half that saw them finish well below .500, the Chicago White Sox have given up on the postseason. As a result, several players are expected to hit the market.
The Chicago White Sox have decided to give up on the postseason, according to the New York Post and other local media outlets.
This is known as the Sellers Declaration. The White Sox will now listen to trade offers for all but four key players.토토사이트
The White Sox finished the first half of the season with a 38-54 record and a .413 winning percentage, good for fourth place in the American League Central. They are eight games out of first place.
There are four untradeable resources: Dylan Sease, Eloy Jimenez, Andrew Vaughn, and Luis Robert Jr. One pitcher and three hitters.
The most sought-after players are starting pitcher Lucas Giolito (29) and reliever Keenan Middleton (30), who are about to become free agents.
They have half a season left before free agency. They could be highly sought-after because they have relatively little blood on their hands.
Giolito is an eight-year major league right-handed starter who went 6-5 with a 3.45 ERA in 112 1/3 innings over 19 games in the first half.
He’s not expected to be an ace, but he’s good enough to earn a spot in the rotation. This will make him popular with teams looking to bolster their starting rotation.
Middleton is also a right-handed reliever in his seventh year in the majors, pitching 32 innings in 34 games in the first half of the year, with a 2-1 record, two saves, three shutouts, and a 3.09 ERA.
Several teams are now expected to declare themselves sellers, starting with the Chicago White Sox. This will lead to several trades before the August 1 deadline (July 31).
