Chicago White Sox trade Adam Eaton to Washington Nationals
The Chicago White Sox aren’t done making any moves just yet.
Just a day after they traded away ace Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox, they made another move by sending Adam Eaton to the Washington Nationals.
In return, the White Sox get prospects Lucas Giolito, Dane Dunning and Reynaldo Lopez. Giolito was ranked as the Nationals No. 1 prospect and the third-best in baseball. Lopez is the No. 3 prospect in Washington’s farm system and Dunning is No. 6.
Giolito a great get for chisox. And they do it for Eaton instead. Big week for south siders.

The addition of Giolito now gives them the No. 1 and No. 3 prospects in baseball after they acquired Yoan Moncada from the Red Sox. The acquisition of Moncada bumped the White Sox farm system to the second-best in baseball. This move could bump them up to No. 1 very shortly.
Chicago is still in talks with other teams regarding other players as Jose Quintana and Todd Frazier are names to keep an eye on as the Winter Meetings continue.
