The Chicago White Sox might finally get their answer at second base in this deal.
The Sox have been searching for a long-term solution at second base for an eternity. Getting Michael Busch in this deal can finally plug that position.
He can also play third.
Busch is the Dodgers’ No. 2 prospect. He hit two home runs in 72 at-bats in the big leagues last season.
He hit .323 with a 1.049 OPS and 27 home runs at Triple-A Oklahoma City.
This is probably the top prospect the Dodgers would be willing to move since they can always seem to find a player to plug into their lineup in free agency.
Stone struggled in four major league starts as he posted a 9.00 ERA. He still has loads of potential, and the Chicago White Sox need to get a starting pitcher back. He is the type of prospect pitcher the Sox should target.
He can still be developed and comes cheap. Plus, he has an outstanding changeup.
Munoz is at rookie ball, and acquiring him would be like getting a scratch-off lottery ticket. He had a .273/.338/.412 slash line in his first full season playing ball in the United States.
He is 19 with a nice left-handed swing.
Gauthier is the Dodgers’ 30th-best prospect. He is a solid-hitting prospect. Gauthier split time between High-A and Double-A ball. His combined slash line was .316/.435/.475 last season. His calling card is getting on base.
He does not have a lot of power, but he can play five positions. This would be a good depth piece in the organization that could develop into a solid major leaguer.
