The White Sox acquired two international bonus pool slots from the Orioles on Saturday in exchange for Minor League pitcher Alex Katz. The two slots Chicago acquired -- the 45th and 75th slots, respectively -- were valued at $756,300 total.
Katz has an 0-1 record and 4.40 ERA over 10 games with Class A Advanced Kannapolis in 2017. The right-hander, whom the White Sox selected in the 27th round of the 2015 MLB Draft, is 0-4 with a 3.09 ERA and 114 strikeouts over three Minor League seasons.
MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez reported earlier Saturday that the White Sox are finalizing a deal with Cuban free-agent outfielder Luis Robert, though the club has not confirmed. Chicago is expected to sign the No. 1 prospect on MLBPipeline.com's Top 30 International Prospects list for deal worth less than $30 million.
