Ken Rosenthal:

For teams seeking to trade for a starting pitcher, the White Sox can offer one from Column A and one from Column B.

Lefty John Danks appeals to high-revenue teams – he will get a raise from $6 million in his final year of arbitration, then hit free agency.

Righty Gavin Floyd, on the other hand, fits nicely for low-revenue clubs – he is signed for $7 million next season with a $9.5 million club option for 2013.

The White Sox are drawing interest in both pitchers, major-league sources say. Whether they trade one, both or neither likely hinges on the trade offers they receive. …

Will the Sox trade Danks or Floyd, or let Mark Buehrle go? At least they brought back Jason Frasor…

Jon Heyman tweets the Rangers “are believed interested” in Danks.

Chuck Garfien:

What Williams does know is that the payroll will certainly take a hit. How much?” It’s a little bit less than what we had last year,” Williams said Thursday to a handful of reporters. So maybe not as much as fans feared. However, the changes could be significant. …

Also,

Kenny has  -25 cents.

UPDATE: Kenny says he’s not ready to deal, yet:

“I’m not ready right now,” said Williams with a wry smile, discussing the White Sox situation after five local high school baseball players, who also took part in the White Sox Amateur City Elite program, signed their collegiate letters of intent during a Thursday ceremony at U.S. Cellular Field. “There’s some fact-finding that has to go on. This is going to take a while.

“We have some players that have garnered some interest from a number of clubs. We’ve got to exhaust ourselves to make sure that if we end up making a deal or we stay the course and try to add to it, that we know exactly what we are getting ourselves into.”

Cash Kruth:

The White Sox announced the signing of two left-handers on Thursday, agreeing to one-year deals with Donnie Veal and Jose Quintana. …

Daryl Van Scouwen’s scouting report:

“Quintana’s fastball is in the 89-91 mph range. He also throws a curveball and changep, and according to one scouting report, “throws with some deception.”

UPDATE: Kenny Williams talked about Quintana:

“He’s a strike thrower,” Williams said. “He can spin the breaking ball. He’s got velocity to both sides of the plate. He can grow up and be a starter. We’re very happy to have both.”

UPDATE #2: Phil Rogers reports (end of #2) Quintana will be assigned to AA-Birmingham.
