MLB: White Sox is after leader in hits and fifth in batting average

Although Chicago White Sox They are just two games clear in the AL Central and are in the top 10 for runs scored and hits in the MLB, there are offensive problems they could address on this year’s Trade Deadline.

Being without Eloy Jiménez since spring training and without Luis Robert of Cuba since early May has prevented the lineup from reaching its full potential, but at least those two players are expected to return sometime this summer:

The same cannot be said for rookie second baseman Nick Madrigal, who ended the year after tearing his right hamstring on June 9. His replacements at second base, Danny Mendick and Leury García from Quisquey, they’ve done some useful work, compiling a .262 average and a .769 OPS since then.

However, the White Sox are “looking everywhere” for positional help, according to MLB Network insider Jon Heyman. He mentions Venezuelan veteran Eduardo Escobar of the Arizona D-backs and the left-hander as targets Adam Frazier of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Escobar, an imminent free agent, would provide a power boost to a White Sox team that has hit the fewest home runs in the American League. Escobar has 16 home runs and 46 RBIs through 277 at-bats. He has spent most of his time at third base this year, but has only made one mistake in 31 games at second base.

For his part, left-hander Frazier, who is not scheduled to reach free agency until 2023, leads the majors in hits (94) and is fifth in batting average (.330). His strikeout rate of 11.0 is the fifth-lowest in MLB.

Which of them will land in the Windy City or both or neither?
