The Chicago White Sox are the worst team in the majors.

And the Phils are the best.

So, trade rumors are in the air.

So, the 17-49 Chisox may be ready to unload Luis Robert Jr.

He’s been floated as an option for the Phillies by the New York Post’s Jon Heyman.

“The White Sox are actively seeking packages for Robert, and with two team options at a club-friendly $20 million and just $63M to go through 2027 (assuming the options are exercised), he combines control and talent like no one else out there,” Heyman said.

“Worry over injury history is the negative heard. But many need outfielders (Los Angeles Dodgers, Phillies, Kansas City Royals, etc.) Chances to be dealt: Good.”

Robert could be exactly what the Phillies need.

He earned his first All-Star SPOT last season when he clubbed 38 home runs, drove in 80 runs, stole 20 bases, and slashed .264/.315/.542 in 145 games played and won’t be a free agent until 2028.

Philadelphia should be considering all options to improve the club and landing someone like Robert could be the perfect move to take the club to another level.
