Jennings bids farewell to Chicago

Left-hander Dan Jennings, traded to the Rays on Thursday morning, took to Twitter not long after to express his thanks to the city of Chicago: "Can't put into words how much this city has meant to me and my family the last few years. I got to watch my daughter grow up here, enjoy the city, and best of all got to play baseball here for these passionate fans. Though we are excited for a new adventure in Tampa, we will miss Chicago dearly. Thanks to all the players, coaches, staff, and personnel I didn't get to say goodbye to. Goodbye Chicago."
