Hahn strikes again.  Swarzak to Brewers for Ryan Cordell. Cordell projects as a solid 4th OFer

Sell away, wish we'd convert Fulmer to a full time BP guy and sell him as well in a year or two.

ABTR, and he is likely to bring back more value in that form....

@JeffPassan
How rebuilding is done: Sign guy in late January to minor league deal (Swarzak), turn him into legit prospect (Cordell). Bravo, White Sox.

seems like a decent return for a rental.

Hope his back problem isn't significant.

Aaron Bummer is getting the call to replace Jennings.  Let the jokes begin.

Bummer was our 19th round draft pick in 2014. Gillaspie was Rays 1st round pick that year.

Not enough of a return for a decent LH reliever who has two more years of control.  RH should have held out for Gillaspie + another player too.

The + being a fringe prospect like Johnny Field.  That return would have brought Hunnie back to the boards. ;D

18-year old Fernando Tatis, Jr. now at #58 on the MLB.com Top 100 Prospects list - ahead of Reynoldo Lopez, Lucas Giolito and Dylan Cease.  Whoever recommended the James Shields trade needs to leave the White Sox organ-I-zation ASAP.

Aaron Bummer should have been the name for Dylan Axelrod.

the Jennings trade was putrid. Doesn't make any sense at all.

**** even if Jennings were only a rental it would be a bad trade. Mindless.

(and I'm not a great fan of Jennings)

it only makes sense if they decided they didn't want him on the 2018 team and they planned to non-tender him after this season.

Melky to KC for two pitchers. Looks like a solid return

We get RHP A.J. Puckett & LHP Andre Davis, paying half of the rest of Melky's salary.   Puckett was KC's 2nd rounder last year.

Not bad.

MLB.com had Puckett ranked the Royals #13 top prospect.  They now have him as the White Sox #25 top prospect.

LHP Andre Davis was #22 on the Royals prospect list.  He now doesn't crack the top 30 White Sox list.
