According to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, Chicago White Sox outfielder Micker Adolfo is “a popular name in trade talks.”
The Chicago White Sox head into the 2022 season looking to repeat themselves as AL Central champions. Before the season, the White Sox decided to trade Craig Kimbrel to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for outfielder AJ Pollock. That led to a crowded starting field alongside Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert.
According to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, outfielder Micker Adolfo was “a popular name in trade talks” this week as it’s uncertain if he’ll make the Chicago opening day list.

Adolfo is Chicago’s 14th overall candidate in their pipeline. That spring, Adolfo made the most of his season during exhibition games when he recorded a .435 batting average, a 1.283 OPS, two homers and nine RBI in 23 at-bats.
The White Sox signed Adolfo back in 2013 and he’s been a part of the organization ever since. He has yet to make the major league roster.
Last season, Adolfo shared time between Double-A and Triple-A. In 101 games, the outfielder hit .245/.311/.520 and recorded 25 home runs, 69 RBI and 90 hits.
As Morosi notes, it’s unknown if Adolfo will make the Chicago opening day list. Either way, he’s become a “popular name” in trade talks for good reason, especially with his performance this spring.
