Rick Hahn deals Kenny Williams Jr.
Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn made his first trade since taking over from Ken Williams on Oct. 25. The oddity of the deal had Williams' son, Kenny Williams Jr., going to the Colorado Rockies for their former manager Jim Tracy's son, Mark.
Tracy, 24, hit .264 at Class-A Modesto in 2012.
Ken Williams was promoted to executive vice president when Hahn was elevated to his new position last week. Hahn said he would confer with Williams and team chairman Jerry Reinsdorf on big trades and free-agent signings.
Hahn made his first major transaction Tuesday, signing veteran right-hander Jake Peavy to a two-year, $29 million contract with a third-year vesting option for 2015. The team also picked up the $9.5 million option on right-hander Gavin Floyd for 2013.
