  1. White Sox confirm. The Chisox add another top 100 prospect in Maximo Gonzalez to the organization. Max will likely start next season at AA. Jack Hartman performed well as the closer for the Dash last season but the organization did not see a path to the majors for Jack. Perhaps a change of scenery will get him on the right track. If not, no one in the stadium is safe from the wild pitch. Good luck to the Cubs in the coming season and thanks for the quick talks again.
  2. The White Sox confirm. This deal brings 4 prospects to the Sox organization with the key being top 100 pitching prospect Kyle Brosnan. This season Kyle threw 74.1 innings, striking out 102 while alking just 13. He finished the season with a 2.06 ERA and .93 WHIP. Brosnan will likely start 2023 at AA . The Chisox also landed starting pitchers Andre Pallente and Noah Murdock and shortstop Tim McMahon. Billy, Byron, and Garcia all played roles in hte majors this season and will be missed. Hamilton was resigned to a minor league contract mainly due to his solid defense, speed and flexibility but was not expected to play a role in the majors. Byron was unhappy here and Orlando Garcia requested a trade so we did what we could to give them each a change of scenery.
  3. Chisox confirm. Really a tough call to deal Torkelson as he was our top prospect and we had high hopes for Wicks, a solid left handed prospect but the budget needed to be fixed in order to focus on the rebuild. Tink, Pill, and Rivera contracts for multi years was just too much. After floundering around a bit earlier this came together in a matter of minutes. Good luck to San Fran in the future. Thanks for the quick deal.
  4. Chisox confirm this deal. A couple arms in the minors that were on the block for some much needed center field help. I see Steele Walker in the bigs next year.
  5. Chisox confirm Giving up some quality prospects but in need of catching depth at the upper minors and Conforto is a solid corner outfield with power. The Chisox have been struggling offensively and hopefully Michael can add a spark. Thanks for the quick painless talks
  6. BREWERS get P Bill Hauck MLB RP Cody Poteet, MLB RP Tim Barnes MLB RP Bill Hodges A+ 1B Keon Barnum AA WHITE SOX get SP Archie Bradley MLB RP Livan Moinelo MLB CF Bryce Stevens AAA SS Cameron Eden AAA 2B Cody Schrier A Chicago continues the rebuild of this organization from top to bottom. Adding the players that fit my mold and getting rid of the ones that don't. The players leaving did not have a future here in Chicago, although all good players that contributed in their own way. They will be missed. The White Sox organization wishes them all the best of luck in their new home. The additions.....Livan Moinelo will add another left handed arm to the pen and Archie will add a quality starter to the rotation. Resigning will likely be a pipe dream but the hope is he can help at least make the Sox respectable in the second half. SS Cameron Eden will more than likely report to AAA but may see time with the pro club and share time with Galvis before years end. CF Bryce Stevens will report to AAA and 2B Schrier will report to A ball. The White Sox thank the Brewers for the talks and wish them the best of luck the rest of the year.
  7. Toronto gets RP Vinnie Pestano MLB with 60% retention 2.5 mil cash White Sox gets SP Christian Macleod A+ SP Doug Nikhazy A+ LF Stephen Paolini R Bluefield C Ricardo Perez R Bluefield SP Levi Lewis R Dunedin Chicago continues to build for the future adding 3 more left handed pitching prospects to the fold. Ricardo Perez helps fill our lack of catching depth and Paolini adds another solid outfield to growing list. Mitch and I have gone back and forth since I took over in Chicago but finally settled on something that helps both teams, Toronto now and the Sox in the future. Thanks for the talks.
  8. Washington gets RP Brett Marshall MLB SS Cesar Otero R Glendale 3B Diego Castillo R Glendale SP Verdiano Duccio R Glendale White Sox get CL B.J. Sharp AAA SP Josh Hartle A- CL Pedro Borbon III A- Part 2 of the earlier trade as Marshall was not eligible to be traded until July 1. Sharp will report to AAA. Hartle and Borbon will report to A-. This adds 3 left handed pitchers to the organization. An area I am looking to improve upon.
  9. White Sox get 3B Jordan Walker A+ RF Heliot Ramos AA SP George Kirby AAA SP Sandy Alcantara AAA SP D.L. Hall AAA Astros get P Bill Black MLB SP Emerson Hancock AA CF Neil Lewis AA SP Andrew Painter A The deal everyone has been waiting for. The White Sox organization is excited to get this deal done after agreeing to it weeks ago. Chicago welcomes 5 solid young prospects into the fold. Goerge Kirby and Heliot Ramos are both expected to see time with the pro team this year. Walker will get a few more years to develop and will likely start at A+ while DL Hall and Alcantara will report to AAA with hopes they will start next year with the Sox. Black was a solid left handed starter but his talents were wasted on a team that is years away from being relevant and while Hancock, Lewis, and Painter were all solid prospects themselves, they did not represent the types of players I want and I did not see a path for them within the organization. Thanks to the Astros organization for the quick negotiation even though this was the longest a trade has ever taken to get sealed.
  10. White Sox confirm the edit. The White Sox have been looking for ways to kick start the offense and hope that Rendon can once again find his stride in a new environment. Erik Miller and BJ Sharp will report to AAA upon arrival and we look forward to seeing both develop into solid MLBPro contributors. This started as a swap to get Rendon in the lineup and evolved rapidly into getting Puig off the payroll. Davis and Phillips are solid pieces but were not in the White Sox future plans so we wish all the very best in the Nations Capitol.
  11. White Sox confirm. Casey Kelly will immediately report to the team following tonights game and is expected to start tomorrow to wrap up the Detroit series. Jose will report to A ball. Juarez is a kefty with good stuff and expected to become great. With improvement on his movement and control he could develop into a solid reliever. Thanks to the Mariners for the somewhat easy but extended talks and good luck Garcia.
  12. White Sox confirm. Tyler Hill was not part of the plan going forward and Taijuan Walker we believe can help solidify the pen and will mostly be used as a stopper or possibly setup guy. Thanks to the Cubs organization for the quick easy talks
  13. The White Sox confirm. The White Sox and specifically the White Sox new GM Greg Witthauer is happy to bring my 1st round pick from last year, Rich Marmaro, to Chicago. Also returning to the fold is 2B Jared Stevens, a solid defensive player that can play any infield position and a developing bat with power and speed. 1B Max Jacobson (ML) is a 1B and plays well there. A lack of arm strength limits his versatility but his swing is improving and 1st base is second nature so he could thrive at 1st or maybe DH at some point. SP Melvin Garner was a trade acquisition with the Pirates. A guy who the Kansas City Royals lost faith in and I took a shot on. I believe Garner has the tools to be a quality bottom of the rotation starter or late inning reliever. I see a slow developer but the talent is there. Dean, Mejia, India, and Shawn Neubauer were all great teammates and will be missed in chicago but the team is going in a new direction and they did not fit well in the new climate in Chicago. Best of luck to the Pirates this year and thanks for the fun talks. More to come I suspect.
  14. Pirates confirm. The Pirates welcome 3B Joey Moran and Evan Weaver to the club. Joey is currently hitting .268 for the Giants with 4 HR's and 21 RBI's in 178 PA. Joey will likely start at AAA until a place can be cleared on the 26 man roster at which point he will share time with Ryan Kerr at 3B and spot start around the infield as needed. Evan Weaver is a solid young outfielder who is currently DHing for the AAA River Cats. He is batting .241 with 5 HR's and 24 RBI's. He will also start his White Sox career at AAA but will definitely see time with the pro club this season. Thanks to the Giants organization for the quick, easy, talks. Best of luck in the National League.
