Chicago (AP) - The Chicago White Sox unloaded outfielder Sammy Sosa to Montreal for a third round draft pick just hours before the trading deadline. The White Sox originally acquired Sosa with a third round draft pick from Arizona during the 2002 season for Magglio Ordonez.
Sosa was hitting .294 with 28 HR's and 71 RBI's this season. He hit .265 with 36 HR's and 87 RBI's in 137 games last season for Chicago.
Montreal, making a run for the playoff spot, is currently in 3rd place - just 4 games back in the competitive Koufax Division.
