The Chicago White Sox trade:
SS Liam Ballard (AA)
The Los Angeles Dodgers trade:
SP Jake Wilson (currently DFA'ed)
The White Sox continue to look for depth for our Major League club as we push our chips all-in for 2019. We put in a waiver claim for Jake Wilson, largely due to his MiLC and left-handed delivery, but another team had a higher waiver priority, so we decided to go get him to help our cause. He'll serve as depth for our rotation in case of injury while also doubling as a potential left-handed reliever for our big league club, while being an easy stash at AAA until he's needed.
We have some decent MI depth in our minors at the moment, so Ballard seemed a worthwhile player to move for this purpose.
Thanks, Sam, for the quick & easy deal.
