Grab Some Bench:
The White Sox finally made the trade that everyone knew they were going to make, sending Jake Peavy to the Red Sox in a three team deal that included the Detroit Tigers. In return, the White Sox got a grab bag of low prospects from the Red Sox and Avisail Garcia from the Tigers.
Garcia is clearly the centerpiece of this deal, and how he performs in a White Sox uniform will ultimately determine how Rick Hahn is judged on his first big trade as General Manager of the Sox.
First let’s look at the raw numbers on Garcia, rated the #74 prospect in baseball before the 2013 season by Baseball America.
Garcia was signed by the Tigers in 2007 and played in his native country of Venezuela in their summer league in 2008 as a 17 year old. He spent 2009-11 at the Tigers Single-A teams before making the jump to AA Erie in 2012, hitting .312/.345/.465. The Tigers called him up to the majors as a late season call-up, and he hit .319 for the Tigers down the stretch as they cau...

The Chicago White Sox scratched right-hander Jake Peavy
prior to last night’s start, as they were hoping to have him avoid injury while
being shopped so close to the trade deadline. Maybe they should have taken the
same approach with outfielder Alex Rios, who exited last night’s game against
the Cleveland Indians after fouling a pitch off his left foot, reports Doug Padilla...
Jake Peavy has been on the trade block and it looks like the White Sox have finally dealt him. See who is involved in the deal.
We’ve heard a lot of late about the upside that recent acquisitions Brandon Jacobs and Avisail Garcia – and deservingly so.
They both have bright futures as Rick Hahn’s first youngster acquisitions as White Sox general manager. But we can’t forget to keep focusing on those under-the-radar guys throughout the organization, and one name to focus on is Marcus Semien, who...
As the trade deadline loomed three American League teams were able to lock horns on a multi-player trade that on paper seems to work for all clubs involved.
The Boston Red Sox acquired their much needed arm for the playoff push landing 3-time All Star Jake Peavy from the Chicago White Sox. The Red Sox sit perched in second place, a half a game back of the division leading Tampa Bay...

In a move to shore up an inconsistent bullpen for an expected playoff run, the Tampa Bay Rays have acquired right-handed reliever Jesse Crain from the Chicago White Sox for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Crain, who had been named to the 2013 American League All-Star Team on the strength of a 0.74 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 46 strikeouts in 36.1 innings, hit the disabled...
As the non-waiver deadline pulls to within 24 hours (July 31, 4:00 p.m. EDT), the rumor mills abound with potential trades. However, it often sees new twists for the same potential deals. One such example includes the Chicago White Sox and a pending deal to send outfielder Alex Rios to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
First, on Tuesday morning, the trade for Rios was heavily rumored to...
With the Jake Peavy trade going down, a roster spot opened up. Since Blake Tekotte was optioned to AAA yesterday to make room for Andre Rienzo, the Sox have recalled Jordan Danks from Charlotte to give the team another outfield option.
Many people will probably want to see the newly-acquired Avisail Garcia play in the big leagues, but Danks makes more sense for now. With...

A busy sports day in Detroit just got a busier as fans learned a valuable lesson of NEVER trusting what a general manager has to say.
Hours after Dave Dombrowski made it look as though Detroit wasn’t on the verge of any blockbuster deals or addressing an impending short stop dilemma, the Tigers did a total 180. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Tigers sent outfielder...
