Default *Official* Alex Rios Traded To Texas Thread

UPDATE:
The White Sox and Rangers are now in a 72-hour window to negotiate a potential trade for Alex Rios.
http://www.csnchicago.com/white-sox/...ace-claim-rios


670 The Score ‏@670TheScore 3m Report: Alex Rios claimed off waivers http://cbsloc.al/1cxTOab #WhiteSox


EDIT:
Claiming team unknown.

Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal 56s #Rangers
logical guess as claiming team for #WhiteSox’s Rios. Had interest in him in July. Cruz now suspended. Cruz, Murphy FAs end of year.

#WhiteSox’s Rios owed $15M after this season. Salary jumps from $12.5M to $13M if traded, buyout on option increases from $1M to $2M.

JIM BOWDEN ‏@JimBowdenESPNxm 1m

Teams most likely to put a claim in onAlex Rios? My guess would be 1. Texas 2. Pittsburgh 3. Seattle 4. San Fran. TX has biggest need

Rios is a fine player, but making room for Garcia is taking a healthy step forward.

Yes, he could be with the Sox until the end of the season. Players get claimed off waivers all the time, most of the time deals are not made.

Sometimes a team will put in a claim to block another team from getting the player (this is how we think Rios ended up with us. The theory was that Kenny wanted to block the Tigers from getting him). If a deal is not worked out in 48 hours, the player stays. The Sox can pull him back even before the 48 hours expire.

How does Rios' no trade clause work here? I know he has a few teams on it. I assume it would apply in any trade the Sox worked out with the claiming team, but would it apply if the Sox just straight dumped in a waiver claim?

I think what he was wondering is if there was any likely scenario that involves the Sox pulling Rios off of waivers instead of just giving him away or working a trade.

The Sox would be idiots to just give him away. He's a decent hitter, base stealer, and is fine in the field. This is not a guy you just give away, regardless of his contract. Get something for him if someone wants him.

And if they don't want to give us something screw em stick em with that contract and a guy who lacks passion and hustle.

Gotta look big picture here.

Either we deal him now or November, he's not going to be here next spring.

We have to get something for him, how does a dump with nothing in return help the rebuild?

Plus it would make Hahn look foolish. Taking offers before the deadline, saying they're not good enough, and he won't give a player away, then dump him for nothing? No way.
