The Chicago White Sox are reportedly unlikely to trade first baseman Jose Abreu this offseason, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (h/t The Score's Jason Wilson).

Rosenthal's report came after Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported in November that the White Sox and Boston Red Sox were engaged in trade talks involving Abreu.

The White Sox and Red Sox completed a blockbuster trade last offseason that sent ace Chris Sale from Chicago to Boston for infielder Yoan Moncada, pitcher Michael Kopech and others.

Chicago has stripped its team down significantly over the past year, and it is firmly entrenched in rebuilding mode.
