Let's start with SS Tim Anderson, who is currently on the injured list. Anderson batted .318/.347/.474, from 2019 to 2022 for the Chicago White Sox. He was one of the best middle infielders in the game, being worth 12.6 WAR for that time as well. His defense has since completely crashed though, while he was as good as a 1.0 dWAR in 2021, he had a -0.9 dWAR last season. His dWAR is currently a surprisingly decent 0.2 WAR.

Anderson's offense has been abysmal for the last two season. He's batted .236/.276/.281, in 159 games and 615 AB. He's just not hitting for either contact or power, and seems to just no longer having the bat speed that he once had. He was once a .300+ hitter, but now he's lucky to even hit .250 this season.

Tim Anderson is not expensive, making $5 million before he hits free agency after the season. The problem is that he's so bad, that what could The Fish even get for him? Moreso why would any team even want him at this point? If Anderson doesn't improve significantly with the bat, he's almost certainly not getting traded, but will be shown the door as a free agent after the season instead.
