The White Sox are seemingly going for it in 2016, having already acquired Todd Frazier and Brett Lawrie, among others, this offseason and boasting a rotation that features Chris Sale, Jose Quintana and Carlos Rodon at the top. Chicago wants to add a productive outfielder to the fold after not getting much production from either corner spot in 2015.
Carlos Gonzalez would be of particular interest to the White Sox, notes Levine, who speculates that 24-year-old, cost-controlled outfielder Avisail Garcia and a pitcher -- presumably a prospect -- could be enough to get a deal done.
Garcia has loads of promise but owns a career batting line of just .264/.311/.385 in almost 1,100 plate appearances spanning parts of four seasons. Still, his youth combined with a move to Coors Field might make him an intriguing possibility for the Rockies.
The White Sox likely wouldn't part with any major league starting pitching since it's not necessarily a position of depth, but four of their top 10 prospects are pitchers, led by 2015 first-round pick Carson Fulmer.
Within the next day or so, we'll profile possible players the Rockies could seek in a deal with the White Sox. Stay tuned to Purple Row for additional developments in the meantime.
