Success - Article sent! close

The White Sox and the Colorado Rockies made a big-name trade Thursday night, but don't get too excited.

Outfielder Kenny Williams Jr., son of Sox president of baseball operations Kenny Williams, was sent to the Rockies for first baseman/designated hitter Mark Tracy.

The son of former Colorado manager Jim Tracy, who resigned early last month following a 64-98 season, Mark Tracy played with Class A Modesto last season and batted .264 with 6 home runs and 24 RBI in 41 games.

The Rockies selected Tracy on the 22nd round of the 2010 draft.

Williams Jr. was the White Sox' sixth-round draft pick in 2008. He battled injuries for much of his stay in the Sox' minor league system.

Last season Williams played in 77 games with Class AA Birmingham and batted .250 with 4 home runs and 30 RBI.
