Why The Rangers Should Trade Profar, Gallo For Chris Sale

Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels is talking to the Chicago White Sox about All-Star left hander Chris Sale.

Do it!!! Make that trade.

I will bet you a Slurpee Joey Gallo and Jurickson Profar will make an MLB All-Star Game one summer in their big league careers. It will probably cost the Rangers those to players to bring Sale to Arlington.

Do it!!! Make that trade.

Sale is under contract until he is 30 years old. He's salaries are a steal:

  • 2017: $12M
  • 2018: $12.5M (you read that right, only a $500,000 raise)
  • 2019: $15M

Sale is tied for the Major League lead with 14 wins (14-3) and has a 3.18 ERA. He has been an All-Star in every season since 2012, and led the American League with 274 strikeouts last season.

The 2016 free agent pitching market is pretty average. No pitcher will be on the free agent market this winter better than Sale or will come with a controllable years of three years and $39.5 million dollars.

Do it!!! Make that trade.
