“I think it’s good for him. A good change of scenery, I’m sure,” White Sox star Paul Konerko said. “Guy’s a good player and he’s been a great player in Boston for a long time so you can play at that level you can play anywhere.”

The 25-year-old Stewart is 1-2 with a 6.00 ERA in 18 games with the White Sox this season. Lillibridge, 28, is hitting .175 with two RBIs and seven stolen bases in 48 games.

Cherington was excited to get Stewart.

“He’s a good thrower and looks like he can be a major league starter,” he said. “He just needs a little more time in the minors.”

Lillibridge is expected to join the Red Sox in a utility role.

“I loved playing here, I enjoyed it so much,” Lillibridge said after the White Sox beat visiting Milwaukee 1-0 in 10 innings. “I’m excited to see where my career will go and I’m excited to help the Red Sox.”
