The White Sox traded Melky Cabrera to the Royals on Sunday in exchange for two pitching prospects.

Chicago received right-hander A.J. Puckett and left-hander Andre Davis from Kansas City. The White Sox also sent the Roayls cash considerations. He is still owed $5.2 million of his $15 million salary this season, and Chicago will pay half of that remaining salary.

Cabrera, 32, is hitting.295 with 13 home runs and 56 RBIs in 98 games (428 plate appearances).

The 22-year-old Puckett is the No. 13 ranked prospect in the Royals farm system and joins a now loaded White Sox farm system which is the best in baseball. In the interim, Cabrera should serve as an upgrade over incumbent left fielder Alex Gordon, whose miserable 2017 has seen him produce a 57 OPS+.

Kansas City holds the second wild-card spot by 2? games over Tampa Bay.

Davis has a 4.83 ERA and 87 strikeouts in 85 2/3 innings at Class-A this season. He's 9-7 with a 3.90 ERA in 20 starts with the team's Class A affiliate.
