2014 White Sox ?

Jake Peavy, Jesse Crain, Matt Thornton, Matt Lindstrom, Dylan Axelrod, Brent Morel and David Purcey should all be traded before the July 31st deadline, likely for prospects who won't reach the Majors until September of 2014 or later.

Gavin Floyd, Hector Gimenez, DeWayne Wise, Ramon Troncoso, Brian Omogrosso, Deunte Heath and Donnie Veal should all be dropped from the 40-man roster.

Paul Konerko will likely retire.

If no relevant free agents are signed in the off-season, which is entirely possible, then this could be the opening day 25-man roster:

Lineup - 1. Alejandro De Aza CF, 2. Gordon Beckham SS-2B, 3. Alex Rios RF, 4. Adam Dunn DH-1B, 5. Dayan Viciedo LF, 6. Andy Wilkins 1B-DH, 7. Josh Phegley/Tyler Flowers C-DH, 8. Conor Gillaspie/Jeff Keppinger 3B, 9. Alexei Ramirez 2B-SS - at least until Carlos Sanchez is Major League ready. Trayce Thompson should eventually displace one of the outfielders, probably Rios.

Bench - outfielders Jordan Danks and Casper Wells.

Rotation - 1. Chris Sale, 2. John Danks, 3. Erik Johnson, 4. Jose Quintana, 5. Hector Santiago.

Bullpen - closer Addison Reed, setup men Nate Jones and lefty Santos Rodriguez, right-handers Simon Castro and Andre Rienzo, and lefties Scott Snodgress and Spencer Arroyo.
