White Sox manager Rick Renteria was asked what his club's best selling point was in the chase for the winter's top free agents. "The future," he said, which about sums it up.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

We have a trade! No, not that one. The White Sox have acquired Ivan Nova from the Pirates to bolster a rotation that will be without prized prospect Michael Kopech in 2019. Nova is ... well, consistent, with ERAs of 4.17, 4.14 and 4.19 the past three seasons. He's homer-prone, so a move to Guaranteed Rate Field could be problematic. The Pirates, meanwhile, clear a spot for Nick Kingham or, later in the season, top prospect Mitch Keller.
