The White Sox have shown interest in lefty relievers Mike Gonzalez and Arthur Rhodes, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.Gonzalez, a Scott Boras client, remains unsigned with the season a few weeks away.  Boras told me on Friday his client is “in play with a lot of teams right now,” and “sometimes late doesn’t mean demand, it just means choice.”  At this point, however, Gonzalez’s ability to secure a Major League deal is in jeopardy.  Last week, he turned down a minor league offer to return to the Rangers.  The White Sox currently have 37 players on their 40-man roster, so they could add Gonzalez without losing anyone.  Rhodes, 42, is more likely to settle for a minor league deal, in my opinion.  He aims to pitch one more season before retiring.

Heyman, also, reports that the Sox were interested in 3B Eric Chavez. Chavez re-signed with the Yankees. The Sox were “very interested” in Chavez last year. Maybe next year. Kenny always gets his man.
