Chicago White Sox & Arizona Diamondbacks Complete Trade

The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired right-handed pitcher José Ruiz from the Chicago White Sox for an undisclosed amount of cash.

Ruiz had a difficult start to the season with the White Sox, giving up nine runs in just 3.2 innings across four appearances, leading to his removal from the roster.

Despite his struggles, the 28-year-old will now join the Diamondbacks' bullpen as a middle-innings option, as he has no minor-league options available.

Ruiz signed a one-year contract with the White Sox in January but struggled to find his form on the mound.

For his career, he holds a 4.53 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, with 181 strikeouts over 178.2 innings and 178 appearances.

The Diamondbacks seem to be focusing on rebuilding and may be giving opportunities to pitchers like Ruiz to prove themselves in low-pressure situations. Photo Credit: Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports
