With word that Jed Hoyer will be joining Theo Epstein in Chicago, the Padres have a familiar face sliding into the GM chair.

With Padres GM Jed Hoyer headed to the Cubs in the same capacity under former boss Theo Epstein, another Epstein protégé, Josh Byrnes, takes over in San Diego. Although Hoyer's tenure didn't last as long as anyone expected, he made a few key moves that will help shape the course of the franchise.

Transaction Analysis Special

A quick review of some of the minor deals and pickups from the early action at the Winter Meetings.

The White Sox send 1B-R Chris Carter to the D'backs for OF-R Carlos Quentin: An interesting exchange, but one I think the Snakes will get the better of. Quentin's health-related setbacks aside, his power potential still strikes me as another example of park-generated hype from within Arizona's bandbox-laden farm system, and corner outfielders with only modest pop aren't great prospects. He'll be one of the guys fighting for playing time in left field in spring training. If he beats out guys like Brian Anderson and Ryan Sweeney, that's not necessarily a reflection of real value; Quentin might be able to particularly exploit the Cell's nearby corner in left, but it's more likely that his value will come from his combination of Bayloresque peltability at the plate (his minor league HBP totals are nothing short of alarming) and his willingness to work the count and take a decent number of walks. He might not be Ozzie Guillen's kind of of guy at the top of the order, but if Quentin can deliver on that element of his ability, he'd help fix that one problem for the Sox.

For the Snakes, this might represent the third nice pickup from an otherwise generally poorly-stocked Sox system. Between Chris B. Young, Aaron Cunningham, and now Carter, it looks like if the White Sox have a position player prospect, he winds up with Arizona. Add in the potential confusion of the Snakes first one and now the other first base prospect named Chris Carter, and it's king of amusing. Credit GM Josh Byrnes for trading up Carter-wise. Carter is only about to turn 21 having already gotten his full-season debut under his belt, and his power projects into the thirties in the major leagues. Kevin Goldstein did a nifty write-up of his virtues in the White Sox Top 11 Prospects, and if he's not much of a first baseman, that hasn't been a problem for the organization when employing either their original Chris Carter (now a Red Sock), or Conor Jackson in the majors.
