White Sox Trade Rumors: Dylan Cease Could Be on the Move

Reports suggest that the odds of the White Sox trading Dylan Cease are at 90 percent, according to insiders.

The latest episode of the “White Sox Talk Podcast” has shed light on the ongoing negotiations surrounding starting pitcher Dylan Cease. It seems highly likely that the Chicago White Sox will make a deal involving Cease in the near future.

Renowned baseball journalist Bob Nightengale, who joined the podcast, revealed that the White Sox have been engaged in talks with the Los Angeles Dodgers regarding a potential trade for Cease. Nightengale believes that a deal will eventually be struck, given the high demand for the talented pitcher.

Several teams are reportedly interested in acquiring Cease, including the Atlanta Braves and the Baltimore Orioles. The Dodgers, in particular, are in need of starting pitching and may be more motivated to secure Cease following their failed pursuit of Aaron Nola.

Cease had a disappointing season in 2023, posting a 7-9 record with a 4.58 ERA. However, his performance in 2022, where he was the Cy Young runner-up with a 14-8 record and a 2.20 ERA, has not been forgotten.

Despite his struggles, Cease still has two years of team control remaining before becoming a free agent after the 2025 season.

Nightengale estimates that there is a 90 percent chance Cease will be traded before Opening Day. While the White Sox could potentially hold onto him until the All-Star Break, it is more advantageous for them to make a move now and maximize their return.

White Sox General Manager Chris Getz has made it clear that the team is open to offers for any player except Luis Robert Jr. This indicates that the White Sox are serious about exploring trade possibilities.

Rumors surrounding Cease’s potential trade are expected to intensify during the winter meetings in Nashville, which will take place in the first week of December.
