Chicago White Sox trade rumors suddenly involve Zack Greinke, a starting pitcher that could certainly help the team try to win the American League Central. The White Sox have had a resurgent season in 2012, suddenly jumping back into things when it comes to deals at the MLB trade deadline.
According to a report, the White Sox might not even have to focus on minor leaguers to make a trade with the Milwaukee Brewers. There are currently 10 rookies on their big league roster, making it entirely possible to do a deal that includes some of those young players. It might hurt the depth of the roster, but getting an ace pitcher like Greinke could certainly help put some games in the win column.
Heading into the games on Friday (July 27), the White Sox hold a half game lead in the Central after going on a three-game winning streak. Holding off the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians might get tougher down the stretch, but bringing in a pitcher like Greinke could make things a lot easier every fifth day.
It has already been confirmed that the Brewers are looking to part ways with Greinke before the July 31 deadline, so all it comes down to now is which team is going to offer them the best package of players.
Do these new Chicago White Sox trade rumors point the team in the right direction? Could the White Sox put a package together with enough good young players to entice the Milwaukee Brewers to trade Zack Greinke?
