Arizona sends: RP Michael Blake (AAA/waivers)

 

Chicago White Sox sends: P Gregg Marmaro ®

 

 

The retooling continues, as we exchange a reliever who is almost ready now for one who is a few years away.  Both have a shot at a major league career, but with the season ending this was an opportunity to build depth for the future.  Thanks for the quick/easy negotiations, Jonathan.

The White Sox approve this deal.

 

As we continue to look toward 2019, a year in which we think we have a chance to contend in the AL Central, we are looking at positions of weakness.  While we've produced a top 5 starting rotation ERA this year in the AL, we're in the bottom quadrant in bullpen ERA.  We think Blake has an opportunity to be a solid ML left-handed reliever, and we're willing to give up on a rookie-league bullpen arm for the immediate production of Blake.

 

Thanks for the super easy negotiations.
