The Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox have agreed to a trade that will send outfielder Melky Cabrera to the Midwest and pitchers AJ Puckett, Andre Davis to the Windy City.
Cabrera, 32, is putting together a nice season for himself. He is batting .295 with 13 HRs and 56 RBIs. The Whitesox have been in sell mode for a while now. They have the best farm system in baseball and it's somehow getting better.
Puckett, 22, is the Royals' #13 ranked prospect in their system. In High-A this year, he owns a 9-7 record with a 3.90 ERA.
Davis, 23, has played all year in Low-A in the Royals' system. He owns a 5-4 record and an ERA of 4.83.
The Whitesox will be taking the majority of Cabrera's contract for the rest of the season
