The Chicago White Sox acquired pitcher Ryan Tepera from the Chicago Cubs for pitcher Bailey Horn.

What does it give the Chicago White Sox
In a rare swap between Chicago rivals, the Pale Hose land a solid reliever in Tepera. The 33-year-old right-hander can pitch in high-leverage situations and will likely be used in a setup role on the South side.

What does it give the Chicago Cubs
In Horn, the Cubs acquired a left-hander who was drafted in 2020 and is currently completing his first pro campaign. He is a decent addition in exchange for a veteran reliever for a selling team like the Cubs.

Fantasy impact
Tepera should be in line for a few holds with the White Sox down the stretch, although he may not get any save opportunities now that he has moved to the South side of Chicago. As for Horn, he does not need to be picked up in most keeper formats but keep an eye on him.
