The Chicago White Sox have traded pitching prospect McKinley Moore for Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Adam Hussle.
Adam Hesley could be a starter for his new team as he is a good defensive player, although he struggled at the plate with a batting average of .190 in 2021, his third season in MLB.
McKinley Moore is just 23 years old. The Philadelphia Phillies are hopeful that he can develop into a big league relief pitcher.
In an immediate drop by trade, it is easy to say that the Chicago White Sox won the trade. Adam Hussle may be an immediate contributor in 2022, but McKinley Moore has the potential to have the upside down the line.
As the old saying goes, one bird in the hand equals two in the bush, which makes Adam Hesley all the more valuable as he enters the 2022 season.
The Philadelphia Phillies have a solid pitching staff for 2022, headlined by Zack Wheeler, who had a WAR of 7.7, was an ALL-Star, and came second in Cy Young Award voting in 2021.
