Padres, White Sox Trade 

The Chicago White Sox have traded James Shields. They are sending the San Diego Padres Erik Johnson and Fernando Tatis Jr.
Padres will have a large portion of the remaining $58 million owed on Shields’ four-year, $75 million deal. 
The White Sox are expected to pay between $27 million and $31 million of Shields’ remaining salary if he doesn’t opt out of his contract after this season.
Johnson is 0-2 with a 6.94 ERA while Shields is 2-7 with a 4.28 ERA this season. 
His first start for the Soxs is unclear at this time. 
Shields had signed the largest free-agent contract in Padres history. 

The White Sox (29-26) are 1.5 games back of the Kansas City Royals for first place in the AL Central. 

The Padres have dropped to a 22-34 mark and now are last in the NL West.
