Red Sox Get Ace Chris Sale From White Sox

Sale was involved in a freakish jersey dispute earlier this year before the White Sox were scheduled to play the Tigers in Chicago.

Just when it appeared ace Chris Sale would be terrorizing the NL East for at least the next three years, the Boston Red Sox swooped in to land the Chicago White Sox's 27-year-old hurler in a blockbuster trade.

He said that these players fit on all 30 teams and he purposely said all 30 because that includes them. The White Sox need to be stripped down and built back up.

"That's a wow", Cashman said of the Sale trade, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. A native of Cuba, Moncada signed a $31.5 million deal with the Red Sox in February 2015.

The Red Sox will add Sale to a rotation that includes $217 million lefty David Price, AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello and 23-year-old lefty Eduardo Rodriguez in a group that rivals the star-studded staffs fronted by Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer that Dombrowski assembled in Detroit. They moved him to third base this past season, and he made his major league debut late in the year. He ranked as the best prospect in baseball on Baseball America's midseason update in July. He was shipped to Boston in exchange for top prospect Yoan Moncada, fireballer Michael Kopech and two other young prospects. McCutchen doesn't have as much trade value as Sale right now, but the haul the White Sox got for Sale is so ridiculous that it can't help but drive McCutchen's price upward. He has velocity out the yang - he reached 105 a minor league game last season - but ran into some off-the-field trouble previous year, fracturing his hand in a fight with a teammate last March.

His career 3.00 ERA is no fluke, and the imposing lefty brings to mind comparison to Randy Johnson with his unconventional delivery and utter dominance on the mound. Kopech, 20, was limited by injuries last season, but is known for a blazing fastball.

The Boston Red Sox got the man they wanted - a setup man, in fact. He had a 2.08 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 13.7 strikeout/nine innings rate in 52 innings in 2016.

While the Red Sox farm system now looks far more depleted than it did when Dombrowski first took over, they still have a number of appealing prospects that they can turn to over the coming years.

The 20-year-old Kopech was the 33rd overall pick in the 2014 amateur draft.
