Alex Rios came to the Chicago White Sox with great expectations. However, Rios has underwhelmed in the two-plus years since being acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays. After providing a bit of hope last year with reasonable run production, Rios underwhelmed like few others in the MLB.
Rios reached base less often than all but two other players in the MLB. That defines not being able to be counted upon.
Since the White Sox can't count on Rios, General Manager Kenny Williams would be well-advised to dump Rios. Some team would be willing to take his big contract. Williams certainly can't afford it.
Following are some reasons to dump Rios, along with some possibilities for trading him.
