MLB: Cleveland Indians at Chicago White Sox

The last White Sox rumor roundup of 2016

The White Sox have done a lot. They acquired seven prospects in two days time at the start of this month, and I don’t think we’ve even written anything about Victor Diaz yet, other than “the White Sox also acquired Victor Diaz.” He’s a 22-year-old reliever who has only reached A-Ball and has some control […]

Who is left to trade?

BP South Side has a house style that involves linking player names to their Baseball Prospectus player pages, and it’s necessary to make all of these links manually, so know that I am definitely not intentionally embellishing this list of still tradable players on the White Sox major league roster.
