#1: A prospect-based proposal

This is probably the most likely of the three packages if a deal were to be made. The White Sox probably won’t be too willing to part with a young player with major league experience or a top prospect, so this is the only possible deal in which both criteria are met.

First, the White Sox would be parting with two top-100 prospects, and their No. 9 and No. 10 ranked prospects, both of which have been top-100 prospects at one point.

The headliner in this deal would be Dane Dunning. Acquired in 2016 from the Washington Nationals, Dunning is the highest-ranking prospect in this deal. The righty is a perennial top-100 prospect, and is close to being ready for the majors. A polished, consistent righty, Dunning is a safe bet to pan out at the major league level.

The second piece of the deal would be Blake Rutherford. Another top-100 prospect, Rutherford is a toolsy outfielder that could fit anywhere in the Mets future outfield. A 2016 first-rounder, Rutherford possess major upside and 20-20 potential.

Also. Bulls trade packages for John Wall. light

The final two pieces of the deal would be Luis Basabe and Alec Hansen. Basabe, who was acquired from the Boston Red Sox back in 2016, is a high-ceiling, low-floor outfielder, who is coming off of a great 2018 season in which he was selected to the 2018 All-Star Futures Game. Secondly, Alec Hansen, a 2016 second-rounder, led the Minors in strikeouts in 2017 before imploding in 2018. Hansen has a really high upside, and would be a gamble as the final piece.
