White Sox | Wanted Jurickson Profar

The Chicago White Sox wanted SS Jurickson Profar from the Texas Rangers when the two teams discussed OF Alex Rios before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. The Rangers were unwilling to give Profar up. If Rios were traded now, OF Avisail Garcia would likely come up and play at the major league level.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely that the Rangers will land Rios, since they'll have to take on most of his remaining contract, even though Nelson Cruz is out for the year. If the trade goes down, Garcia should be owned in all AL-only leagues.
