Rios is expected play center field for the White Sox. There’s a chance he could move to right field in the future, since Jermaine Dye is in the final year of his contract and is unlikely to return in 2010. … Ricciardi originally hoped to get a player in return for Rios, but the White Sox told him they wouldn’t give anyone up unless Toronto paid some of Rios’ contract. In the end, the Jays decided that more financial flexibility was better than anyone they could get from Chicago.
Rios will probably join the team tomorrow.
