The Rangers, who are looking for relief help and could settle for a left-hander such as Matt Thornton, had a scout follow the Sox in Detroit and Kansas City recently. One of the Sox’s top scouts was watching the Rangers on Tuesday.
Manager Ozzie Guillen doesn’t believe the Sox would add to their payroll.
“I think (Chairman) Jerry Reinsdorf’s broke now,” Guillen said.
UPDATE: Stark @ ESPN:
An executive of one club predicted Tuesday that the Braves would wind up dealing for Josh Willingham. But for what it’s worth, the White Sox continue to scout Atlanta’s system, in case they decide to move Carlos Quentin.
