White Sox acquired RHP Michael Kopech from the Red Sox in the Chris Sale trade.
Kopech’s stock has risen dramatically over the past year despite getting a late start on the season after suffering a fractured right hand in an altercation with a teammate. The 21-year-old lit up the radar gun once he was ready to return, posting a 2.08 ERA with 86 strikeouts in 56 1/3 innings between Low-A and High-A while regularly topping 100 mph. The control is a work in progress, but he’s an exciting arm. You have to worry about injury with someone who throws this hard, but the White Sox could at least have a potential closer if he doesn’t make it as a starter. Dec 6 - 4:15 PM
