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

  • Headshot for Nicky Lopez

    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).
