White Sox Acquire Todd Frazier in Three-Team Swap: Reports

The Chicago White Sox have made a massive splash on the trade market, acquiring third baseman Todd Frazier in a three-way trade.

Frazier, who slugged 35 home runs and drove in 89 runs for the Cincinnati Reds last season, joins a White Sox infield that has already been revamped this offseason, with Brett Lawrie joining the mix in a trade earlier this month.

Pieces of the swap are still being revealed, but one big piece that’s on the move from Chicago is pitcher Frankie Montas, who is reportedly heading to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Montas was the White Sox only Top 100 prospect last season, and he made seven appearances with the big league club, racking up a 4.80 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 15 innings pitched.

The White Sox are also sending Micah Johnson and Trayce Thompson to the Dodgers as part of the trade, according to reports. 

C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer was the first to report the trade, and Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports confirmed the swap.
