CHICAGO, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- The Chicago White Sox announced Thursday they have traded starter Javier Vazquez, an 11-year major league veteran, to the Atlanta Braves in a six-player deal.

Vazquez and reliever Boone Logan were sent to the Braves for four prospects, the White Sox said.

Vazquez, 32, who will be joining his fifth major league team, was 12-16 with a 4.57 earned run average for the White Sox last season. The right-hander has a career record of 127-129 with a 4.32 ERA in 355 games with the Montreal Expos, New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks and White Sox.

Logan, a left-hander, has pitched only for the White Sox, compiling a 4-4 record with a 5.87 ERA in 144 games over three seasons.

Atlanta sends catcher Tyler Flowers, left-handed pitcher Santos Rodriguez and infielders Brent Lillibridge and Jonathan Gilmore to Chicago.

Flowers batted .288 at Class-A Myrtle Beach last season and was named to the Carolina League all-star team.

Rodriguez played for the Gulf Coast League Braves, winning one game and losing two with an ERA of 2.79.

Lillibridge spent most of the season with Triple-A Richmond and Gilmore played in the Appalachian League, making its all-star squad.
