The free-agent price for a good middle reliever is $5 million per season. At this point, the White Sox are considering trading some of their young farm system types to acquire what they need in the bullpen.
It’s also possible that they could put infielder Dayan Viciedo and catcher Tyler Flowers in the mix to acquire some help as well. Both Viciedo and Flowers are still viewed as future starters and might only be used in a bigger trade for impact players.
