Ryan Tepera heads to White Sox from Cubs as Chicago rivals make deal

The Chicago White Sox have agreed to acquire veteran right-handed reliever Ryan Tepera from the crosstown Cubs in exchange for lefty prospect Bailey Horn. Both teams announced the deal on Thursday, a day before the 2021 MLB trade deadline.

Tepera, 33, has pitched to a 2.91 ERA and a career-best 4.71 K/BB ratio in 43 1/3 innings for the Cubs this season. Across parts of seven major-league seasons, Tepera owns an ERA+ of 122 in 279 relief appearances and one start. He’s owed the balance of an $800,000 salary for 2021 and is eligible for free agency this coming offseason. On the South Side, Tepera figures to fortify a right-handed setup and middle relief corps that has some impressive arms but has been light on depth and consistency.
