3 players the Chicago Cubs could trade to the White Sox – #2: Kris Bryant

A move for Kris Bryant would bring an interesting return. Though the hottest rumors surrounding Bryant have been coming from the NL East, the fit is also there for the White Sox. Though Yoan Moncada mans the hot corner on the South Side, with the added bonuses of the four-time All-Star being able to play across the outfield and DH, it wouldn’t be hard to find a spot for him in the lineup

The oft-mentioned versatility of KB gives a manager so many options on a daily basis. Starting a lineup of Tim Anderson, Kris Bryant, Yoan Moncada, Jose Abreu, Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert (when healthy, cleared for rehab assignment, still no timetable) and Yasmani Grandal, (when healthy) it goes to show how powerful this team can be.

With Luis Robert not yet with an ETA back to the big league club, it would give a lot of outfield reps to Bryant. Upon his eventual return, Moncada and Bryant could alternate between third base and DH duties.

Given the aggressiveness the White Sox have shown in recent years in acquiring Dallas Keuchel, Lance Lynn, Grandal and Hendriks, it goes to show how serious the White Sox are about winning now. Don’t sleep on this team as they could come calling in the next few days.
