...looks like we all might need to lower our trade expectations for Mancini. Salaries are almost identical and Mancini’s under contract for an extra year, but Mazara is three years younger.
White Sox acquired OF Nomar Mazara from the Rangers for OF Steele Walker.
This swap was agreed to late Tuesday night at the Winter Meetings in San Diego and has been made official following the necessary medical record review. Mazara posted a mostly underwhelming .268/.318/.469 batting line with 19 home runs and 66 RBI over 116 games for Texas in 2019 and has yet to hit more than 20 home runs in a major league season, but he is just 24 years old and could maybe blossom with a change of scenery. He also drew reported trade interest from the Cardinals, Diamondbacks, Marlins, and Tigers.
