Orioles Get Potential Franchise Changing Package For Mancini

Trading the best player on any roster is never easy. However, with Trey Mancini 27, and the Orioles still a handful of years away from competing if they are offered the right package moving him is the right thing to do.

This package would be one of those. The White Sox are on the market to acquire talent to help them compete now and in the future. They were seen as the runner up in the Manny Machado sweepstakes and have had their nose in nearly every big name trade chip recently. With a hole in right field, Mancini could be the perfect solution.

In order to get this deal done, they’d have to part ways with a handful of pieces from their loaded farm system. The main player, the Orioles, should look to target is second basemen, Nick Madrigal.

Madrigal is the White Sox fourth-ranked prospect and ranked 40th among all prospects in baseball. After being drafted by Chicago with the fourth overall pick in the 2018 draft out of Oregon State, he already has made it to Double-A. By acquiring him, the Orioles would find their second baseman of the future and may have him in the majors as soon as next season.

In addition, the O’s should look to obtain outfielder Luis Gonzalez and third basemen Jake Burger. Gonzalez is the White Sox ninth-ranked prospect and was their third-round selection in 2017. He has the ability to play all three outfield positions, hits to all fields and is known to have a phenomenal outfield arm.

As for Burger, he checks in as the White Sox 13th ranked prospect. He was the White Sox first-round selection in 2017 after hitting 22 home runs at Missouri State in his final college season. He is currently recovering from a torn Achilles tendon but once he returns MLB Pipeline projects him to slug the same way he did in college.

This package would be far too loaded for the Orioles to refuse. It could provide them with three future starters to go along with other potential future stars in Ryan Mountcastle and Adley Rutschman.
