White Sox acquire Alonso from Indians

Cleveland has traded first baseman Yonder Alonso to the Chicago White Sox for outfield prospect Alex Call, the Indians confirmed Saturday.

Alonso, 31, has a career batting average of .265 with 90 home runs and 389 RBIs in 951 games over nine major league seasons. In 2018, his only season with the Indians, Alonso hit .250 with 23 home runs and a career-high 83 RBIs.

Chicago will be Alonso’s sixth big league stop following stints with the Cincinnati Reds, San Diego Padres, Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners. He was an All-Star in 2017.

In three seasons in the minors, Call, a third-round draft choice of the White Sox in 2016, has hit .256 with an on-base percentage of .347. The 24-year-old has 21 home runs, 126 RBIs and 25 stolen bases in 257 games.
