White Sox in talks with Red Sox about Joe Abreu trade

There are a number of teams in talks with the Chicago White Sox regarding a trade that involves Jose Abreu.

If Stanton falls through, what do you think about the Cardinals pursuing Jose Abreu of the White Sox? The other known finalists: Milwaukee and Houston.

Jim Callis of MLB.com ranks the White Sox as having the top-rated farm system in all of baseball. He'll probably make close to $18 million next season, and projections are talking about around $40 million over the next two seasons for someone who won't be 31 until January of next year. He would also be cost-effective, as he is due just $10.825 million in 2017 and would be arbitration-eligible in 2018 and 2019. I would definitely check in with the White Sox about Abreu.

General manager Rick Hahn answered in broad strokes in September when asked about where Abreu fits in the team's rebuild.

"Everything is in play", Hahn said. "This assessment is based on numerous factors, including projected performance, age, cost, length of control, impact on the clubhouse and teammates, as well as how all of those compare to the attributes of alternatives available to us inside or outside the organization". The 30-year-old slugger batted.304/.354/.552 with 33 home runs and 102 RBI in 156 games this past season for the Pale Hose.

Abreu is definitely the type of hitter that would improve the Cardinals' lineup.
