The Chicago White Sox need to call up these two prospects in September to help with their push to the postseason.

The Chicago White Sox’s chances of contending in the American League look pretty strong after they defeated the New York Yankees in the “Field of Dreams” game this past Thursday. Following the win, the White Sox had an 11-game lead over the Cleveland Indians for first-place in the AL Central.

Barring a monumental skid, the White Sox will win the division and clinch one of the top seeds in the American League. But, Chicago can stand to make some call ups later this season to help make their dreams of making a deep postseason run become a reality.

Here are two prospects the White Sox should promote in September or sooner.

The White Sox know all too well about injuries, as they were decimated since the start of spring training. Even though the likes of Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert both returned from injury, Chicago received some bad news regarding Carlos Rodon, as the starting pitcher ended up on the injured list with left shoulder fatigue.

If anything, this proves that Chicago needs to bolster their pitching depth ahead of the postseason. One name they should consider promoting is Kade McClure.

The right-handed pitching prospect spent the majority of his 2021 season with Double-A Birmingham. Through 15 starts with the team, McClure recorded a 3.82 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP and 77 strikeouts over 68.1 innings of work.

McClure recently received his promotion to Triple-A, which means a call up could be in the cards. Of course, that will all be dependent on his performance with Charlotte. Out of all of the pitching prospects, McClure would probably be the best option for the White Sox.
