Dodgers and White Sox should revisit trade talks involving Joc Pederson
The Dodgers and White Sox talked about Joc Pederson last off-season. The two teams should matchup for a deal that would help both clubs.
The Chicago White Sox have come out swinging this off-season, signing former Dodgers’ catcher Yasmani Grandal and signing first baseman Jose Abreu to an extension. It was last off-season that the White Sox and Dodgers talked about a possible Joc Pederson trade and it makes too much sense for them to not re-visit those trade talks.
The White Sox are a young team that is looking to push their way into playoff contention in 2020. They have gotten their off-season off to a strong start and are now going to pursue a starting pitcher. Their outfield could use another bat and the Dodgers could unload Joc’s salary while getting a reliever in return. The reliever that would make perfect sense for LA is Aaron Bummer.
The White Sox are looking to push their way into contention for a playoff spot in 2020 and Joc Pederson would be a logical trade target as they continue that push. Here is why the deal makes sense for both sides.
