White Sox To Acquire Osvaldo Martinez, Minor League Pitcher For Ozzie Guillen

On Monday night, the Chicago White Sox released Ozzie Guillen from his 2012 contract to manage the team, with this caveat from their press release:

The White Sox retain rights to compensation should Guillen accept a managerial position with another major league team in 2012.

This morning, via tweet from MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez, we learn what that compensation will be:

A source told MLB.com that the compensation is expected to be infielder Osvaldo Martinez and a Minor Leaguer pitcher for Ozzie Guillen.

Martinez, 23 years old and a native of Puerto Rico, was the Marlins’ 11th-round selection in the 2006 draft. Clearly a defensive specialist, he has hit just .269/.331/.352 in 2099 minor league plate appearances, and .258/.300/.348 in 71 major league PA in 2010 and 2011.

Guillen is expected to take bench coach Joey Cora with him to Miami, and the White Sox are expected to replace the rest of the coaching staff, except pitching coach Don Cooper, who still has a contract with the team.
