White Sox Trade McCarthy

The White Sox traded Brandon McCarthy and David Paisano to the Rangers for John Danks, Nick Masset and Jacob Rasner. McCarthy was 4-7 with a 4.68 ERA with the White Sox last year. The White Sox acquire Nick Masset who pitched in 8 games with a 4.15 ERA and 4 K. John Danks went 9-9 with a 4.24 ERA in Double and Triple A this season, but has not pitched in the Majors. Jacob Rasner went 6-16 with a 5.41 ERA and 117 K. This is the second trade Kenny Williams has pulled off involving his pitching staff. They traded Freddy Garcia earlier this month and now clear even more room with this trade. Their pitching rotation now looks like:

P Jose Contreras
P Mark Buehrle
P Jon Garland
P Javier Vasquez
P Gavin Floyd
