The Chicago White Sox have made yet another trade, and helped out a team in the thick of the playoff hunt in the process.
The White Sox have traded relief pitcher Tyler Clippard to the Houston Astros, the team announced Sunday night.
Funnily enough, Clippard apparently broke the news of his own trade, as both his Twitter and Instagram bios were changed to reflect his new team just before reports of his impending move began to surface:
Clippard, whom the White Sox acquired from the New York Yankees in the trade that sent Todd Frazier and Tommy Kahnle to the Bronx, has pitched well for the team, appearing in 11 games and posting a 1.80 ERA with 12 strikeouts in 10 innings of work.
If Clippard is indeed gone to the Astros, then it could be considered the White Sox doing Houston a favor after sweeping them in a three game series at Guaranteed Rate Field last week.
