The Chicago White Sox have traded starter Miguel Gonzalez to the Texas Rangers in exchange for minor-league infielder Ti'Quan Forbes, the Rangers announced, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Gonzalez has put up serviceable numbers in his second season with the White Sox. The right-hander is 7-10 in 21 starts with a 4.30 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 127 2/3 innings, while being worth 1.4 WAR, according to Fangraphs.

The Orioles and White Sox were reportedly discussing Gonzalez for a few days, though Baltimore ultimately balked at Chicago's asking price, according to Eduardo A Encin of the Baltimore Sun.

The 34-year-old Gonzalez, who spent four seasons with the club from 2012-15, is earning $5.9 million this season and will become a free agent at the end of the year.

Forbes - a 21-year-old second-round draft pick in 2014 - is slashing .221/.276/.304 in 181 at-bats in High-A.
