  • White Sox Likely To Wait To Deal Dylan Cease

    Headshot for Dylan Cease

    Chicago White Sox new general manager Chris Getz is telling teams he will likely wait to move right-hander Dylan Cease until after the top free-agent starting pitchers sign this offseason, according to major-league sources briefed on the discussions. The urgency of certain teams will only increase if they miss out on top free-agent pitching names like Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Blake Snell and others. The Los Angeles Dodgers need multiple starters, and the St. Louis Cardinals remain interested in Cease, even after already signing Sonny Gray, Kyle Gibson and Lance Lynn. The Cincinnati Reds and Baltimore Orioles could be sleepers to trade for Cease, who is 28 years old and still under club control for two more years.

  • Cardinals Interested In Dylan Cease

    Headshot for Dylan Cease

    The St. Louis Cardinals are showing interest in trading for White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease. Rumors surrounding a Cease trade have intensified over the last 24 hours and it is believed a trade could get done sooner than later. The Cardinals' interest is intriguing as they have already made significant rotation splashes this winter with the additions of free agent right-handers Sonny Gray, Lance Lynn, and Kyle Gibson as they completely re-make their starting rotation. Cease was the AL Cy Young runner-up in 2022 when he tossed a 2.20 ERA across 32 starts but he took a step back in 2023, working to a 4.58 ERA across 33 outings. Nonetheless, the 27-year-old takes the ball every fifth day, boasts big-time strikeout numbers, and is under club control through the 2025 campaign.

  • Wynton Bernard Inks Minors Pact With White Sox

    The Chicago White Sox and minor-league outfielder Wynton Bernard have agreed to a minor-league pact for the 2024 season. The well-traveled Bernard has appeared in 1,010 minor-league games in a professional career that began in the 2012 season but he finally got the call to the big leagues when he played in 12 games with the Rockies in the 2022 season. He hit a respectable .286 in 42 plate appearances with the Rockies that season but most recently hit .329 with eight homers, 26 stolen bases, and an .872 OPS across 66 games with Triple-A Albuquerque last season. The 33-year-old is a career .291 hitter in the minors with 65 home runs, although 32 in the last two seasons, and 265 stolen bases in 3.472 at-bats.

  • Trade Talks For Dylan Cease Have Intensified

    Headshot for Dylan Cease

    Trade talks for Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease have intensified in the last 48 hours, and some people close to the negotiations believe a deal before next week's winter meetings is increasingly possible, according to sources. Cease's hometown Atlanta Braves are among the finalists, and we also know that the Los Angeles Dodgers are very serious about him as they look for starting-pitching upgrades this winter. The 27-year-old was the runner-up in American League Cy Young voting in 2022 but took a step back this past season by going 7-9 with a 4.58 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with 214 strikeouts and a career-high 79 walks in 33 starts (177 innings). Cease can be wild, but his strikeout upside is enticing and he's under club control through the 2025 season.

  • Dodgers Among Most Aggressive Teams For Dylan Cease

    Headshot for Dylan Cease

    The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Tuesday that more than a dozen teams have inquired about Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Dylan Cease, but the Los Angeles Dodgers are "among the most aggressive." The Dodgers' current starting rotation contains some young, exciting players but is much shallower than it has been in some time. They also have a strong farm system, making them a seemingly suitable match to trade for 27-year-old Cease, who can be retained through salary arbitration for two more seasons. Cease took a step back in 2023, going 7-9 with a 4.58 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 27.3% strikeout rate over 33 starts and 177 innings pitched. However, he owns a 3.83 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 28.1% strikeout rate over the course of his career, and moving to any competitive team will boost his fantasy value.

    Free-agent outfielder Mark Payton has signed a minor-league deal with the Chicago White Sox. Payton comes back to the United States after playing for the Seibu Lions of the Korean Baseball Organization in 2023. The 31-year-old has played in only 40 games in the major leagues with the Cincinnati Reds and White Sox in parts of three seasons from 2020-22. He played in only eight games for the White Sox in 2022 and went 3-for-21 with an RBI and three runs scored. In 69 total plate appearances in the majors, Payton has gone 10-for-61 (.164) with no home runs, a double, one RBI, one stolen base and five runs scored. Payton will represent minor-league depth for the rebuilding White Sox entering the 2024 season.

    The Chicago White Sox designated outfielder Adam Haseley for assignment on Tuesday to make room for recently signed infielder Paul DeJong on the 40-man roster. Haseley hit .222/.282/.278 with no home runs, two doubles, two RBI, one stolen base and six runs scored in only 28 games played for the White Sox in his second year in Chicago. The 27-year-old left-handed hitter also underwhelmed in 72 games for Triple-A Charlotte down on the farm. In his five major-league seasons (three with the Philadelphia Phillies), Haseley has slashed .259/.319/.356 with only five home runs (all in his rookie season in 2019), 43 RBI, five stolen bases and 49 runs scored in 158 games played.

  • Braves In Talks For Dylan Cease

    Headshot for Dylan Cease

    The Atlanta Braves have joined the Los Angeles Dodgers and several other teams that are engaged in trade talks with the Chicago White Sox for ace Dylan Cease. The White Sox have made it very clear this offseason that they are willing to listen on trade talks for all of their players as they rebuild, and Cease has been one of the most popular names so far this winter. The 27-year-old right-hander saw his velocity decrease slightly in 2023 and he took a big step back from his excellent 2022 campaign when he went 14-8 with a 2.20 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. Cease went 7-9 in 2023 with a 4.58 ERA (3.72 FIP), 1.42 WHIP, 79 walks and 214 strikeouts in 177 innings over 33 starts. He has cleared 200 K's in each of the last three seasons, though, and could bounce back to his 2022 level if he can throw more strikes.

    The Chicago White Sox signed free-agent right-hander Justin Anderson to a minor-league deal on Wednesday. Anderson made his big-league debut with the Los Angeles Angels in 2018 but hasn't appeared in the majors since 2019. The 31-year-old reliever wasn't good over three minor-league levels with the Kansas City Royals in 2023, posting a 6.87 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with 20 walks and 59 strikeouts in 36 2/3 innings over 24 appearances (one start) in the Arizona Complex League and with Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Triple-A Omaha. In 111 outings out of the bullpen with the Angels in 2018 and 2019, Anderson allowed 57 runs (54 earned) while walking 32 and striking out 60 in 47 frames. He'll operate as organizational relief depth for the Pale Hose in 2024.

    Free-agent infielder Paul DeJong agreed to an undisclosed one-year deal with the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday, pending a physical, according to a source. The rebuilding White Sox are taking a cheap flier on a former All-Star. The 30-year-old right-handed-hitting DeJong made the National League All-Star team in 2019 with the St. Louis Cardinals, when he hit .233/.318/.444 with a career-high 30 home runs, 78 RBI and nine stolen bases in 159 games. He hasn't even reached the 20-homer mark since then. In 112 contests with the St. Louis Cardinals, Toronto Blue Jays and San Francisco Giants in 2023, he went 77-for-372 (.207) with 14 homers, 38 RBI, 13 doubles, four stolen bases and 41 runs scored in 400 plate appearances. DeJong can provide a bit of pop but will certainly be a batting-average drain as a middle infield platoon option in deep-mixed and AL-only fantasy leagues.

  • Michael Soroka Resumes Throwing

    Headshot for Michael Soroka

    Chicago White Sox right-hander Michael Soroka (forearm) said that he has resumed throwing this offseason and "feels great." Despite finishing the 2023 campaign on the 60-day injured list with right-forearm inflammation, the White Sox acquired him from the Atlanta Braves as part of a package that sent left-handed reliever Aaron Bummer to Atlanta. The 26-year-old Canadian came in second in National League Rookie of the Year voting in 2019 when he went 13-4 with a 2.68 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, but he started only three games in 2020 and missed all of 2021 and 2022 after tearing his Achilles twice. Soroka was a worthwhile starting pitching flier for the rebuilding White Sox, and he should be in play to open the 2024 season in the team's starting rotation as long as he can avoid any setbacks this winter.

  • Dodgers Trying To Acquire Dylan Cease

    Headshot for Dylan Cease

    The Los Angeles Dodgers are in trade talks with the Chicago White Sox in an attempt to land right-hander Dylan Cease. The Dodgers badly need pitching help this offseason, and the White Sox are trying to rebuild their roster. General manager Chris Getz straight up said the team is "willing to listen in on any of our players" this winter. The 27-year-old Cease took a big step back in his fifth big-league season with the Pale Hose in 2023, especially after a career-best 2.20 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 32 starts in 2022. In his 33 starts for Chicago this past season, Cease struggled to the tune of a 4.58 ERA (3.72 FIP), 1.42 WHIP, 79 walks and 214 strikeouts in 177 innings. He'd be much more attractive in LA's starting rotation, especially with his strikeout upside, but he needs to lower his walk rate to be less volatile as a fantasy commodity.

    The Chicago White Sox have made it clear this offseason that they are willing to move any player in a trade as they look to rebuild. "I've made it very clear that the White Sox are willing to listen in on any of our players," first-year general manager Chris Getz said. Outfielder Luis Robert Jr. and right-hander Dylan Cease are Chicago's biggest trade chips as they look to slash payroll this winter. Robert, 26, is under contract as part of a six-year, $50 million deal he signed in 2019, but he will still be very attractive after winning a Silver Slugger award in 2023. Cease, 27, was the American League Cy Young runner-up in 2022 but struggled to a 4.58 ERA in 2023. He pitched last year on a one-year, $5.7 million contract he signed to avoid arbitration.

  • White Sox Acquire Michael Soroka, Jared Shuster, Others From Braves

    The Chicago White Sox pulled off a trade on Thursday night, landing right-hander Michael Soroka (forearm), left-hander Jared Shuster, infielders Nicky Lopez and Braden Shewmake and minor-league right-hander Riley Gowens from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for left-handed reliever Aaron Bummer. Soroka was an All-Star in 2019 when he went 13-4 with a 2.68 ERA and 1.11 WHIP but two torn Achilles limited him to 13 2/3 innings over three starts from 2020 to 2022. In his return in 2023, he had a rough 6.40 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 32 1/3 innings before being shut down with right-forearm inflammation in September. Soroka is still only 26, though, so the White Sox will hope better health will allow him to get back to his 2019 form. Shuster, 25, made his big-league debut this year and had a 5.81 ERA (5.38 FIP), 1.50 WHIP, 26 walks and 30 strikeouts in 52 2/3 innings (11 starts).

    The Atlanta Braves acquired left-handed reliever Aaron Bummer from the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night in exchange for right-hander Michael Soroka, left-hander Jared Shuster, infielders Nicky Lopez and Braden Shewmake and minor-league right-hander Riley Gowens. Bummer, 30, went 5-5 with a 6.79 ERA (3.58 FIP) and 1.53 WHIP with 36 walks and a career-high 78 strikeouts in 58 1/3 relief innings. He was definitely inconsistent for the White Sox in his sixth MLB season, but he served in a late-inning, high-leverage role and was better in the second half. On a much better team in 2024, Bummer could be very valuable for holds and after recording 12 strikeouts per nine innings last year. His barrel percentage of 2.7 ranked in the 99th percentile among all pitchers.

    The Chicago White Sox announced on Friday that right-hander Mike Clevinger declined his half of the $12 million mutual option for the 2024 season, so he will now become a free agent this offseason. Additionally, the team outrighted outfielders Trayce Thompson and Clint Frazier to Triple-A Charlotte. Clevinger will head back to the open market this winter after going 9-9 with the Pale Hose in 2023 with a 3.77 ERA (4.28 FIP) and 1.23 WHIP while walking 40 and striking out 110 in 131 1/3 innings over 24 starts. The 32-year-old was lit up for six earned runs in his final outing of the year against the San Diego Padres, but besides that he finished the year strong in Chicago after coming off the injured list in late July due to a biceps injury. He could be an intriguing under-the-radar fantasy arm in 2024, depending on where he lands in free agency.

    The Chicago White Sox declined relief pitcher Liam Hendriks' (elbow) $15 million option for the 2024 season, making him a free agent this offseason. The White Sox still owe him $15 million, but deferred over time. It was a tumultuous 2023 for the 34-year-old Australian right-hander, as he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma early in the year before eventually undergoing Tommy John surgery in August. Hendriks was able to beat cancer and made five relief appearances for the White Sox, allowed three earned runs while striking out three in five innings of work. The three-time All-Star will miss the majority of the 2024 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, so he won't really have any fantasy appeal next spring in redraft leagues.
