White Sox shuffle rotation following Jose Quintana trade

The deal marked the first trade between the crosstown rivals since 2006.

Be sure to check back later today for more Cubs news and analysis!

Ironically, this trade has little to do with 2017.

Bolstering Epstein's point is that Quintana is under club control through the 2020 season. So, this was more about the next three seasons than it was about this season.

One of the bigger surprises of the first half has been the Chicago Cubs *not* completely running away with the NL Central. Quintana's North Side debut will undoubtedly be much anticipated.

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn was at the All-Star Game Fanfest on Tuesday with his younger son when Cubs President Theo Epstein called.

Losing out on guys like Jimenez and Cease is hard for any organization, but the Cubs are loaded with young talent now.

Is Jose Quintana the savior the Cubs need to pull them up from below.500? They were early contenders to win the division title before falling behind the Red Sox, New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays, and this team can play better.

Can the Seattle Mariners get a good performance from their ace and pick up a road win over the Chicago White Sox when these two teams meet tonight at 7:10PM ET?

This is pretty simple on their part. Neither Rose nor Flete ranked among the Cubs' top 30 prospects.

"He's a true professional who had to deal with everything from poor run support to the bullpen occasionally letting him down, the defense letting him down", Hahn said.

With the addition of Jimenez and Cease, the White Sox have nine of the Top 100 prospects in baseball, according to MLB.com. The problem? He's in the middle of the worst year of his career. Quintana was an All Star in 2016 and has recorded a sub-3.50 ERA every season since 2014. I think it was the best trade for me. His secondary offerings are a bit behind, but if he develops a credible changeup he could be a top of the rotation arm. The Royals are in danger of losing a number of their core players to free agency as the contracts end for the likes of Lorenzo Cain, Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas following this season. It will not be surprising to see teams set the price higher, in hopes to catch teams in desperation.

Flete, 24, was hitting.305 with 15 doubles, six homers, 37 RBIs, 45 runs scored and a.355 on-base percentage in 70 games with Myrtle Beach.

Even if the Tigers were willing to eat $35 million, they still wouldn't get anything like the haul that the Sox received for Quintana, but at least it would get the conversation started.

Instead, the Cubs are struggling to come through with big hits. Jimenez is the key piece for the White Sox.
