Rays acquire LHP Dan Jennings for prospect

Rays acquire LHP Dan Jennings for prospect”

The White Sox made their fourth trade in 15 days Thursday when they sent left-handed reliever Dan Jennings to the Rays for minor-league first baseman Casey Gillaspie.

Jennings is 3-1 with a 3.45 ERA, 38 strikeouts and seven holds this season, his third with the Sox after being acquired from the Marlins for Andre Rienzo in 2014.

Via the Chicago Tribune, Jennings talked about what his thoughts were on getting moved prior to the trade deadline.

Gillaspie was the first round pick of Tampa Bay in 2014 as the 20th overall selection and is the 74th overall prospect in the MLB according to Baseball America. He was better last season, posting a 4-3, 2.08 overall record. Jennings is arbitration eligible and under team control through the 2019 season.

However, Gillaspie went from the Rays tenth overall to the 14th overall prospect for Chicago on MLB.com's mid-season rankings of the organization's top 30 prospects due to his struggles at the plate with Durham and the progression of others throughout the organization. The 32-year-old slugger has hit.236 with a.357 on-base percentage, 17 home runs and 37 RBIs in 75 games this season and owns a career.246/.343/.457 slash line with 125 home runs in eight seasons with the Mets.

Jennings is expected to join the Rays in NY for tonight's game, so a 25-man roster move will have to be made as well.
