White Sox trade center Welington Castillo to Rangers
CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox have traded catcher Welington Castillo and an international signing bonus pool slot to the Texas Rangers for minor league infielder and outfielder Jonah McReynolds.
The 32-year-old Castillo batted .209 over 72 games last season - his second with the White Sox and 10th in the majors. The 23-year-old McReynolds hit .239 in 56 games with Advanced Rookie Spokane.
The White Sox reinstated pitchers Michael Kopech, Ryan Burr and Carlos Rodón and outfielder Jon Jay from the 60-day injured list on Thursday. Slugger José Abreu, Jay and pitchers Ross Detwiler, Iván Nova and Héctor Santiago declared for free agency. And lefty Josh Osich was claimed off waivers by Boston after being outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte.
