Sox Interested In Trading For Chicago Ace Chris Sale

Multiple reports suggest that—despite denials by White Sox brass—left-handed ace Chris Sale is on the trading block. And, according to Jon Heyman of, the Red Sox are one of the teams talking to The Pale Hose (along with the Dodgers). Both teams may also be interested in another lefty on the Chicago staff, All-Star Jose Quintana. Heyman goes on to speculate that Dave Dombrowski may also covet White Sox closer David Robertson—given the injury-induced disarray at the end of the Red Sox bullpen. Of course, the Red Sox are one of the few teams that could offer the prospect bounty that Chicago would surely be looking for to get a young, controllable ace like Sale.
