Admitted Braves fan.
White Sox pick up an extra year of control on a 27 y.o. SP, which is helpful because they’re wasting Cease’s value this year. They also get Grissom to replace Andrus or Tim Anderson next year, after seasoning in AAA for the rest of this year. Or start the youth movement, and move him to Chicago immediately and maybe move another asset for longer term control.
For the Braves, they replace an injured SP with a non-injured SP, so that they only have Fried on the IL. They give up Grissom, but they get this season and two more seasons of Cease. Unless he’s ded, this is a good pickup.
