Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star characterizes the White Sox and Red Sox interest in Coco Crisp as “low-level,” but says that’s still more than the Royals have shown.  Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports says the White Sox would consider Crisp, Mike Cameron, and Marlon Byrd. ESPN’s Mike Salk notes that the Mariners spoke to Byrd’s agent.

Stats: Crisp, Cameron, Byrd. I said Church.

Szymborski:

Church is what he is: a starter corner outfielder who won’t hurt you too badly (he’s solid defensively there) or an excellent 4th outfielder. He could represent a pretty decent bargain for a team that loses out on Holliday or Bay and needs a quick Plan B for a year or two. …

Szymborski:

It’s always nice when you can look up one of your stars and buy out a free agency year without too much pain. It’s not quite as nice when you’re locking up Mark Teahen. …

With Saturday night’s deadline approaching for tendering contracts to their remaining players, teams may try to make deals to move those players so they at least get some compensation if they know they can’t sign the player before the deadline. Among the players who could be non-tendered are San Diego pitcher Kevin Correia and Oakland slugger Jack Cust, who could attract interest from the White Sox. …

Stats: B-R.
