The Chicago White Sox are currently retooling their team this offseason. New GM Chris Getz is optimistic the team can compete next season in a winnable division. The Southsiders have made smart and affordable moves this offseason. The White Sox have now made a second trade with the Atlanta Braves. Earlier this evening the Chicago White Sox acquired veteran catcher Max Stassi and cash from the Atlanta Braves for a player to be named later or cash.
Stassi is an interesting veteran for Chicago to acquire. The now former Braves catcher missed last season due to injury during the 2023 season. The White Sox can now take their new catcher as support for their young catcher Korey Lee. I like this move for the White Sox given the low risk in the trade itself. Stassi fills a need the team has at catcher, and this allows the White Sox to continue filling the holes on their roster.
The Chicago White Sox made a move that can hopefully have a positive impact this upcoming season. The Atlanta Braves paying a portion of Stassi’s salary this coming season is another positive. Stassi has a decent bat and defensive presence behind the plate. I think he can help a young White Sox pitching staff and Korey Lee this season. Smart trade for Chris Getz as the White Sox now welcome new catcher Max Stassi to the Southside of Chicago.
