The Boston Red Sox found a trade partner on Friday after designating right-hander Franklin German for assignment earlier in the week.

German was traded to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for right-hander Theo Denlinger, the team announced.

Tomase: Red Sox' farm system ranking is an indictment of entire plan

Denlinger, 26, was selected by the White Sox in the seventh round of the 2021 MLB Draft. He posted a 4.47 ERA in 40 outings (48.1 innings) last season between High-A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham.

German, 25, was the Red Sox' 2022 Minor League Pitcher of the Year. In 43 outings between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Worcester, he notched a 2.72 ERA. His brief major-league stint did not go as well as he allowed eight runs in four innings with Boston after his September call-up.

German was DFA'd on Monday to make room on the roster for left-handed reliever Richard Bleier, who was acquired in the trade that sent Matt Barnes to the Miami Marlins.
