White Sox / Dodgers Trade

Recommended Posts

The Chicago White Sox trade:

SP Nathan Eovaldi (ML)

 

The Los Angeles Dodgers trade:
 

SP Tyler Pill (ML) + 30% retention

SP Andrew Painter (Ogden Rookie League)

LF Juan Costello (ML)

SP Shawn Neubauer (ML)

 

The White Sox got a bit overzealous in acquiring talent this offseason and went over budget, which prompted this need to move Eovaldi off the roster.  Pill -- with 30% retention, will now fill out the back end of our roster, and I feel that the young SP Eric Braun is ready for a regular rotation role, which is one of the other reasons we felt comfortable making this deal while also trying to remain competitive.  Painter will be a SP prospect at only 18 years of age we'll place low in our minors, Costello is a decent looking OF prospect we'll start at AAA this season as a 5th OFer -- so to speak -- and Neubauer will be converted to a reliever as either a lefty specialist or just a solid middle reliever who happens to be left-handed.  Neubauer is still on a minor league contract for now despite being in big league Spring Training camp so will likely start this season at AAA.

Thanks to the Sam and the Dodgers for the easy communication, and best of luck in 2022!

Dodgers confirm.

We saw Eovaldi come available and pounced. The reason for the swift action was that he is most certainly an upgrade over the pitcher he is replacing in the rotation, Tyler Pill. In a year we intend to compete, upgrading a position of such importance only makes sense. As for the return, Painter was our first round pick in 2021, and we remain high on his upside. Costello showed promise in a cup of coffee in 2021 and Neubauer is a pitcher that was deliberately targeted in trade last July. All three should be contributors at the major league level, two immediately. In our pursuit of contending in 2022 we however felt it worthwhile to part with the talent.

Pleasure doing business with you, Jonathan.
