Sean Tracey Hopes For Trade

26 year-old White Sox starter Sean Tracey doesn’t have much chance of making the team this spring, and he hopes Kenny Williams can accomodate him with a trade.

Tracey posted a 4.30 ERA at Triple A last year.  His minor league equivalents: 6.27 K/9, 7.73 BB/9, 1.38 HR/9, and 10.07 H/9.  Pitchers with that kind of control aren’t exactly hot commodities.  PECOTA sees about a 10% chance he brings that walk rate under 5.0 per nine in the bigs this year.  Tracey throws in the low 90s with unimpressive secondary pitches and profiles as a reliever according to Baseball America.

He’s best known for being berated by Ozzie Guillen for failing to hit Hank Blalock with a pitch last year.  Give Tracey credit for trying twice.
