White Sox / Rockies Trade

Recommended Posts

The Chicago White Sox Trade:

3B Albert Boyle (AA)

 

The Colorado Rockies Trade:

RP Lyndon Stewart (AAA)

C Casey Opitz (R)

 

Boyle is a former 1st round pick.  He's just never quite become what we hoped for, but he's good depth, which is exactly what Eddie came calling for.  We asked for a pitcher who we could ferry back & forth between the Majors & AAA this upcoming season, and Lyndon Stewart came up as an option, but we got Casey Opitz as a low-level catcher just to even the swap.  We don't expect Opitz to ever reach the Majors, or Stewart to ever be a bonafide ML contributor, but they're both depth pieces -- same as Boyle -- and that seems like an even swap to me.

Thanks, Eddie, and best of luck in 2020.  May we meet again in October.

Rockies agree to the deal. 
 

Boyle brings some nice athleticism (Elite wheels and elite arm) to help add some value should he be needed to hold down a roster spot at some point. 
Stewart and Optiz were good depth pieces but needed to package them up to bring Boyle onboard. 
 

Thanks Whitesox!
