The Chicago Tribune reported Thursday that the Rockies have traded first base prospect Mark Tracy to the White Sox, nearly one month after his father Jim resigned as manager of the team on Oct. 7.
Mark hit .264 for Single-A Modesto with six home runs and 24 RBI in 41 games last season.
Tracy’s middle son, Chad, is still currently employed by the Rockies organization as a first baseman for the Sky Sox, but given his last name, he might want to pack his bags just in case.
In return for the younger Tracy, Mark, the Rockies received outfield prospect Kenny Williams Jr., the son of White Sox executive-vice president Kenny Williams.
It was White Sox general manager Rick Hahn’s first trade since he took over the position when Williams was promoted. Williams Jr. hit .250 for Double-A Birmingham with 18 doubles and 30 RBI.
Jim’s oldest son Brian is currently a scout for the Pittsburgh Pirates, making him safe from the wrath of the Rockies.
