Default Sox - Dodgers trade rumor?

https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/...donaldson.html


Some Twitter chatter speculated Matt Kemp could be involved.

Guessing Dodgers are dumping Kemp and his contract on us and giving us a C-level prospect or two, while we give some D-level prospects.

Kemp’s contract is $21.5 mil per season for 2018 & 2019.

Rosenthal says the trade has been made, teams are contacting the players.

Sox are getting Luis Avilan, a bullpen arm from the Dodgers. Haven’t seen what it cost them.

Avilan is the PTBNL from the 2001 Jeff Barry trade.

How exactly is taking on salary and middle of the road prospects going to help the White Sox?

Ugh, I hope they can flip them for better prospects. I liked Peter.

Default White Sox acquire Joakim Soria and Luis Avilan from Dodgers

No it was not Avi or Jose, but it will be helpful regardless. The bullpen was crap last year, so Soria is a good bullpen arm and he has closed before.

So two major league bullpen arms and cash for Peter? Seems like a good deal. If Soria pitches well he could be flipped in July to a contender too.

That is a good sign for Yolmer Sanchez, who did earn his way on to the roster based on the way he played last year. It was technically a three way deal involving Kansas City, and they got Eric Mejia and Trevor Oaks from the Dodgers. I like this deal for us.
