Melky Cabrera Wants To Remain With White Sox

Jul 24, 2017 8:03 AM

If Melky Cabrera has his way, he'll finish out the season with the Chicago White Sox.

Cabrera is in the final season of his three-year, $42 million contract. The White Sox are rebuilding and the veteran could be a likely trade target leading up to the July 31 non-waiver deadline.

"I would like to finish the season here. I like Chicago," Cabrera said through his interpreter. "I like this team and I would like to stay here for a long time, not just until the end of the season. But I don't have control of those decisions."

Cabrera entered Sunday hitting .355 with seven home runs, 25 RBIs and 24 runs scored over his last 37 games.

Brewers Don't Feel Need To Deal After Cubs Land Jose Quintana

Jul 14, 2017 7:37 AM

The Milwaukee Brewers hold a 5.5-game lead over the Chicago Cubs in the National League Central.

On Thursday, the Cubs made a big splash by acquiring Jose Quintana from the Chicago White Sox for the second half of the season. David Stearns says the Brewers won't make a reactive move to counter the Cubs.

"I think that can be a little bit dangerous," Stearns said. "We have to make moves that make the most sense for our franchise, and that's regardless of what a particular rival or another team in our division is doing.

"The Cubs are doing what they think they need to do to improve their team. Obviously we're going to continue to look at the market and see if there's a fit for us down the road."
