PLAYERS: Chris Sale
TEAMS: Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox are poised to become one of the most significant sellers on the trade market this summer. The team has already dealt reliever Matt Thornton, and players such as Jake Peavy, Jesse Crain and Alex Rios continue to be mentioned in trade rumors. Still, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports continues to hear that White Sox ace Chris Sale remains unavailable. continue to hear from GMs that chris sale remains unavailable. #chisox — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) July 18, 2013 While the White Sox appear set to shift their focus to the future by shipping out multiple veterans prior to the July 31 trade deadline, the team doesn't appear interested in moving Sale. Chicago could likely unload the left-hander for a bevy of prospects to help expedite their rebuilding process, but instead the White Sox seem set to focus their future movement around young players such as Sale. This makes sense considering Sale is still only 24 years old and under team control through the 2017 season. He's developed into the team's best starting pitcher. After posting an ERA and WHIP of 3.05 and 1.1135 over 30 appearances last year, the southpaw has maintained marks of 2.85 and 1.008 with a 4.85 strikeout-to-walk ratio over the first half of this season.

The case for trading Chris Sale

At 37-55, the White Sox are currently 14 games back of the Tigers in the AL Central and 15.5 games back of a Wild Card spot. They are one of the very worst teams in baseball this year, so it was no surprise when Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reported the team was "open for business" last month. They're selling. That "open for business" sign comes with a disclaimer...

White Sox activate Peavy from DL

The pitching-starved Chicago White Sox activated right-handed pitcher Jake Peavy from the disabled list Friday and could be about a week away from getting right-handed set-up man Jesse Crain back as well. Peavy (6-4, 4.30) returns to the starting rotation Saturday against lefty Paul Maholm (9-8, 3.98) and the Atlanta Braves at U.S. Cellular Field. Peavy, 32, has been sidelined since...

White Sox push back SP Peavy

Jake Peavy's scheduled start has been pushed back by the Chicago White Sox, who may trade the right-hander before Wednesday's deadline.

Peavy will be replaced by rookie Andre Rienzo, who was to make his big league debut and become the first...

Jake Peavy to rejoin White Sox rotation Saturday

Jake Peavy is set to rejoin the Chicago White Sox rotation on Saturday, against the Atlanta Braves according to the Chicago Sun Times. It will be Peavy’s first call back to action since June 4 when he pitched with a displaced rib and lasted 21/3 innings in Seattle against the Mariners. Peavy had one rehab start at Double-A Birmingham, giving up one run on five hits over five innings...

Trade Values: Alexei Ramirez

Last night we heard that the Pittsburgh Pirates were looking at Alex Rios, and also might consider Alexei Ramirez. I’ve already done a Trade Values article on Rios. That article included a brief estimate of the value of Ramirez, although that came from just glancing at his stats and contracts, rather than digging in deep and looking at him closer. With last night’s rumor, I decided...

Red Sox rumors: Alex Rios, Jake Peavy, Michael Young

The Boston Red Sox enter the second half of the regular season sitting in first place in the American League East. While they’re looking down at all other teams in the East, their advantage in the standings hasn’t stopped them from exploring trade options to improve their club. Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox have scouted Chicago White Sox outfielder...

Pirates Looking at Alex Rios; Might Be Looking at Alexei Ramirez

The Pittsburgh Pirates are looking at Alex Rios, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. He also adds that “people familiar with Pittsburgh’s thinking suggest they wouldn’t be surprised if the Pirates expand the talks to include Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez”. That’s similar to the trade idea Jim Bowden floated out there a week ago, although I don’t think the cost would...

Report: Red Sox Scouted Alex Rios, Michael Young in Past Week, Will Watch Jake Peavy Closely

The Red Sox and White Sox already consummated one trade this season. Perhaps another one won’t be too far behind. The Red Sox, who already acquired reliever Matt Thornton from the White Sox, scouted Chicago outfielder Alex Rios and will scout pitcher Jake Peavy closely over his next couple of starts, according to The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo. The Red Sox reportedly scouted...

White Sox broadcaster Hawk Harrelson documentary airing on MLBN

Hawk Harrelson and his wife are hosting a family party revolving around the MLB Network documentary “Hawk: The Colorful Life of Ken Harrelson,” airing at 6 p.m. CST tonight. I’m DVRing it, and will be back later on my Chicago sports media website to critique it. For me, watching MLB Network is about as exciting being on hold with the cable company or paying utility bills online...

NL batters no match for AL's heat

One by one they came out of the bullpen, hard throwers on a mission to shut down many of baseball's top hitters. Max Scherzer and Chris Sale. Felix Hernandez and Matt Moore. Heat, heat and more heat.
