After an exciting spring training, the White Sox are searching for a young outfielder
According to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, Micker Adolfo of the Chicago White Sox is “a popular name in trade negotiations.”
The Chicago White Sox will try to repeat as AL Central winners in 2022. The White Sox traded pitcher Craig Kimbrel to the Los Angeles Dodgers ahead of the season in exchange for outfielder A.J. Pollock. Along with Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert, this made for a congested starting outfield.
Outfielder Micker Adolfo has been “a popular name in trade negotiations” this week, according to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, as there is concern about whether he will make Chicago’s Opening Day roster.

After a great spring, the White Sox are hunting for a young outfielder
Adolfo is the 14th-best overall prospect in Chicago’s system. This spring, Adolfo made the most of his playing time, hitting.435 with a 1.283 OPS, two home runs, and nine RBI in 23 at-bats.
Adolfo was signed by the White Sox in 2013, and he has been with the team ever since. He has yet to get called up to the big leagues.
Adolfo spent last season in both Double-A and Triple-A. The outfielder slashed in 101 games. Of those, 25 home runs, 69 RBI, and 90 hits were part of his. Batting line of 245/.311/.520.
As Morosi points out, it’s unclear whether Adolfo will be on Chicago’s Opening Day roster. In any case, he’s become a “popular name” in trade negotiations for a reason, especially after his performance at the plate this spring.
