Report: Rangers pushing hard in trade efforts for Chris Sale

Chris Sale White Sox

Remember the report from Thursday saying that the Chicago White Sox turned down a “king’s ransom” for Chris Sale? We have to wonder if that offer came from the Texas Rangers.’s T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers are making a serious effort to acquire the southpaw pitcher. Chicago reportedly wants power hitter Joey Gallo and 23-year-old infielder Jurickson Profar in such a trade.

The sub-.500 White Sox may have fallen out of contention in the American League, but they don’t exactly have a ton of motivation to move Sale. The lefty is on a cheap contract for the next three seasons, as he’s scheduled to earn just $38 million. He’s actually quite a bargain.

Unless the White Sox are getting a massive haul that really makes them a better team, there is little reason to trade Sale. That explains why they turned down the “king’s ransom” deal.
