Could the Rockies and White Sox line up in a trade?

BY foxsports • January 13, 2016

With Gerardo Parra signing with Colorado, he gives the Rockies four left-handed hitting outfielders, joining Charlie Blackmon, Carlos Gonzalez and Corey Dickerson.

Many have speculated they will move one of them, especially Carlos Gonzalez -- trading him would free salary for the rebuilding Rox.

One possible trade destination could be the Chicago White Sox.

According to CBS Chicago, the White Sox "have made it clear to the free-agent outfielders that they don’t want to commit beyond a three-year offer." If that's the case, Gonzalez might make the most sense. He's expensive at $17 million in 2016 and $20 million in 2017, but Chicago could overpay for the luxury of a short-term deal.

As the report notes, the White Sox will also have $29 million freed up with Jon Danks and Adam LaRoche coming off the books after the 2016 season.

Gonzalez has a history of injuries, but played 153 games in 2015, hitting .271 with 40 home runs and 97 RBI.
