The Chicago White Sox trade:

 

RP Tom Wilhemsen (ML) + retain 100% of his salary

 

The Pittsburgh Pirates trade:

 

CF Julio Alvarez (A WV Power)

 

In a non-contending season, we have no use for veteran bullpen arms so we move Wilhemsen while retaining his entire salary for CF prospect Alvarez.  Another move to further develop our system while we rebuild.

Pirates confirm.

 

While we do like Alvarez, he's blocked at virtually every level in a position we don't foresee having a need at for a while. Our bullpen, however, is horrendous this year. While we're only a game out of first (somehow), it makes sense to at least try to repair that and Wilhelmsen, while he hasn't performed tremendously well for the Socks, has the tools to be a solid arm. We've had success with similar guys previously so decided to give it a shot, especially as we don't have to pay him anything.

 

Thanks to Hodges for the quick negotiation.
