White Sox make rare Opening Day deal

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox weren’t going to be denied when it came to minor-league first baseman Lars Anderson.

In a rare Opening Day deal, the White Sox reacquired Anderson in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations. He was assigned to Triple-A Charlotte.

The White Sox had first claimed Anderson off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks this offseason but then designated him for assignment during spring training when they traded for infielder Conor Gillaspie. The Blue Jays claimed Anderson off waivers from the White Sox.
