White Sox Trade OF Luis Basabe To Giants

(670 The Score) The White Sox have traded minor league outfielder Luis Basabe to the Giants for cash considerations, according to multiple reports Sunday.

The White Sox had designated the 23-year-old Basabe for assignment earlier in the week. 

Basabe is a career .248 hitter across seven minor league seasons. The White Sox acquired him as part of the trade that sent ace left-hander Chris Sale to the Red Sox in December 2016. 

Basabe hit .246 with three homers, 30 RBIs and a .660 OPS in 69 games at Double-A in 2019.
