White Sox prospect RHP Francellis Montas allowed one earned run and struck out 11 batters in eight innings on Thursday for High-A Winston-Salem.

He gave up two hits and a walk and carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning. Acquired from the Red Sox last summer in the Jake Peavy trade, Montas, 21, missed all of April of with a knee injury, but has pitched well since returning earlier this month. Through four starts for Winston-Salem this season, the right-hander owns a 1.54 ERA, .171 BAA and 26/4 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 23 1/3 innings.

White Sox acquired RHP Francellis Montas, RHP Jeffrey Wendelken and shortstop Cleuluis Rondon from the Red Sox in the three-team Jake Peavy deal.

The White Sox didn't get any of the Red Sox's farm system gems in the swap; all three guys here are very long-term projects. Montas, 20, was 2-9 with a 5.70 ERA and a 96/32 K/BB ratio in 85 1/3 innings as a starter for low Single-A Greenville. Wendelken, 20, had a 2.77 ERA and a 54/20 K/BB ratio in 65 innings as a reliever in low-A ball. Rondon, 19, was hitting .276/.326/.350 in short-season ball.
