Nothing to see here. Just a small trade with Oakland to gain some infield depth and a few minor leaguers getting swapped.

The 2014 offseason was an infamous one for the fanbase. In what was an attempt to go “all in,” the organization made several key moves leading up to the Winter Meetings. Players like J.B. Shuck, Rob Brantly, Zach Duke and Adam LaRoche were signed in the prior weeks. During the Winter Meetings, the White Sox made the following moves:
