On a day with plenty of fake rumors circulating, the Chicago White Sox made a big move to address their hole at right field.
Per MLB reporter Mark Feinsand, the Chicago White Sox are acquiring A.J. Pollock from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for reliever Craig Kimbrel. The move comes just a few days before Opening Day:

The 34-year-old Pollock now fills a need at right field for the White Sox, something they have been seeking this offseason now. For the Dodgers, they wouldn’t name a closer during Spring Training but have their guy in Kimbrel.
The White Sox acquired Kimbrel at the 2021 MLB Trade Deadline from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for Nick Madrigal.
