In exchange for the ace Sale, the White Sox will recieve four prospects including infielder Yoan Moncada, right-handed pitcher Michael Kopech, outifelder Luis Alexander Basabe, and right-handed pithcer Victor Diaz.
In addition to the Red Sox, the Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves were two other teams to show serious interest in Sale. It was thought that the Nationals were close to acquiring him as of last night in a deal centered around Lucas Giolito.
Today, however, Rosenthal reported that the Red Sox were still in the mix and trying to make a late run at him. Obviously, it appears that it was a successful attempt.
