While the deal was a boon for the White Sox, there are also some smaller wheels turning within the organization.
According to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com, Chicago is in search of a young catcher as it looks toward the future.
One potential target that Langosch mentions is St. Louis Cardinals prospect Carson Kelly, a 22-year-old who hit .289 with a .343 OBP in 96 games split between Double-A and Triple-A last season and was also a September call-up, appearing in 10 games for the Cardinals.
Kelly, who owns a minor league Gold Glove behind the plate, also played well in the Arizona Fall League, where he was named to the all-prospect team.
Gonzalez, 24, has never played in an MLB game, while Narvaez, 24, and Smith, 28, have 133 big league plate appearances between them. None of the three produced a batting average higher than .240 at any level last season.
The White Sox drafted catcher Zach Collins with the 10th overall pick this past June. The 21-year-old slashed .244/.396/.435 with six home runs and 18 RBI in 39 games between rookie ball and high Class A ball.
