The White Sox haven't started selling off pieces yet, but a recent trade from their crosstown rival will come to fruition Wednesday night at U.S. Cellular Field.

The Cubs struck first Tuesday, setting the tone for this year's trade deadline with an early deal that sent veteran starter Scott Feldman to the Baltimore Orioles.

A day later, Feldman will still be in Chicago, but donning a different uniform.

In an ironic twist of fate, Feldman's first start as an Oriole will come on the South Side Wednesday against the White Sox.
The 30-year-old right-hander was 7-6 with a 3.46 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 15 starts for the Cubs. Prior to his brief run on the North Side, Feldman had spent the entirety of his career in the American League with the Texas Rangers, sporting a 39-44 record, 4.81 ERA and 1.42 WHIP while splitting his time almost equally between the rotation and bullpen.

As if that's not enough to draw Chicagoans to the game, Blackhawks star Patrick Sharp and the Stanley Cup will make an appearance at U.S. Cellular Field and will be honored in a pregame ceremony.
