Possibly some of the 19 YO kids who have flashed well and of course possibly Gonzalez and Rutherford. They also have a few young reliever arms who have flashed well at A and AA this past year who might draw some interest.

I am not advocating for trading those players, I am merely saying I think they would have to go that way if they want to get back serious value. Trading MLB ready players to get back better MLB ready players rarely happens.
I tend to agree.

I think Bummer has a lot of value right now, more than a prospect like Stiever or Walker, who hasn't reached AA yet -- and certainly more than the ones who have reached AA and then been so-so.

I don't really know how much value Rodon has, but I think he may be worth more to the Sox in a trade than he will as a player.

Colome could be a useful second piece in a trade for a good but overpriced player. He'll fit in any bullpen (as a setup man, if not their closer) and his salary would offset the salary the Sox would be taking on.

I don't think the rest of the major-league names have a lot of value, but if you can get someone to take Evan Marshall instead of Gavin Sheets, that's a wise thing to do.
