Red Sox get ace Chris Sale from White Sox for hefty package

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) No surprise that Chris Sale got traded, it was time to go. The real shocker? That the Boston Red Sox swooped in to snag him.

The reloading Red Sox pulled off the biggest deal yet at the winter meetings, acquiring the dominant ace from the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday for a hefty package of four prospects.

"The ability to get a Chris Sale doesn't come along very often," Boston president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said.
