I am starting to think that Morel's back may keep him out of action for the remainder of the season. Which brings us back to our overall production at 3B. I think a platoon of Hudson and Escobar (yes, I would like to see Escobar in there 2 or 3 times a week) is fine through July, but if the SOX are still in the thick of things, it wouldn't be a terrible idea to look for some short-term help.

Youk may obviously be the easiest option due to his contract. It would be a classic rent-a-player and if they were to deal for him close to the deadline the financial burden would only be roughly $4M + $1M buyout. I would assume the White Sox could get him for virtually nothing if they picked up the whole tab. I am not a huge fan of Youk, but this would not be a terrible option at that point.

There may be other options out there, but Youkilis is short-term and wouldn't cost the SOX all that much cash. I do know one thing, we are going to need better production out of our 3B as time goes on.
