The rebuilding process has gone extremely quickly for the Chicago White Sox. One more year of selling at the trade deadline could be the final piece needed to complete the rebuild. Most of the White Sox's roster is young and part of their future, but they do have some decent pieces worth trading in the near future.

He doesn't play any defense, but Adam Dunn can hit. He has a .233/.385/.447 line with a 132 wRC+ this season in 192 plate appearances while walking 19.8 percent of the time. He's making a lot of money, but if the White Sox absorb some of his salary, they will definitely find a team that wants Dunn to be their designated hitter.

It's been a rough 2014 season for Alejandro De Aza, but he was very good last season. In 196 plate appearances, De Aza is hitting just .175/.241/.282 with a wRC+ of 39. He plays above-average defense and also runs the bases very well. Even though he has struggled this season, he does have value.

The White Sox could get a really nice haul for Alexei Ramirez. He is an elite defensive shortstop and is also hitting very well this year. Ramirez is hitting .326/.358/.479 with seven home runs and 10 stolen bases this season in 230 plate appearances.

John Danks, a lefty, won't get much of a return for the White Sox, but they could at least try to rid themselves of some of his salary. He is in the middle of a five-year, million deal that runs through the 2016 season. Danks is a fifth starter at best at this point in his career, he has a 4.66 ERA in 2014.

Every team could use a ground-ball pitcher in their bullpen, so Matt Lindstrom could be a decent trade chip for the White Sox this summer. In 19 innings, Lindstrom has a 3.32 ERA with a 52.5 ground-ball percentage.
