Here is a deal where Miller is the centerpiece. The Sox also get Seattle's 2023 first-rounder, Colt Emerson.

He might be deemed expendable since Young is already ahead of him in the Mariners' minor-league system. Emerson is 18 years old and is considered the 87th-best prospect in baseball according to MLB Pipeline. There is talk he will skyrocket up the rankings this season.

He brings a left-handed bat that was Ohio's Gatorade Player of the Year. He crushed it in Rookie Ball with a .536/.629/.786 slash line. He then finished up his 2023 season in Low-A ball with .302/.436/.444 slash line.

His arm might not be strong enough to play shortstop, but the Sox have shortstop covered long-term with Colson Montgomery. They need a long-term answer at second and Emerson could be that guy.

Jonatan Clase is nearing being ready for the big leagues. The switch-hitting outfield crushed 20 home runs between High-A and Double-A ball. Although his Double-A slash line was .222/.331/.396. He is the fastest player in Seattle's system and its eighth-best prospect. He may not take the best lines toward the ball in the outfield, but he is so fast, he can make up for it.

Plus, Clase is 21 and also a hard worker who is willing to grind.

Jeter Martinez is the equivalent of a lottery scratch-off ticket. He is still 17 but was one of the top 50 international free agents. Martinez is already reaching 94mph on the radar gun. The expectation is his velocity will only go up as his body matures. He had 55 strikeouts in the Dominican Rookie ball. If he fulfills his potential, that would be a huge win for the Chicago White Sox.
