During the late hours of Thursday, White Sox general manager Chris Getz made a significant move while everyone in or around the Chicagoland area was sleeping.
He traded left-handed reliever Aaron Bummer for a total of five players. From the Atlanta Braves, the White Sox acquired Illinois natives Nicky Lopez and Riley Gowens, as well as Mike Soroka, Jared Shuster, and Braden Shewmake in exchange for Bummer.

I was laying in bed and had to check 13 times to see if it was a real account.

I just woke up, I thought my friend who sent me the text was sending me fake news. Great job by Getz on maximizing the return for Bummer.
