WhiteSox have bought out the 2010 mutual option for OF Jermaine Dye, making him eligible to file for free agency.
Cowley says the cost was $950,000.
Rangers beat writer T.R. Sullivan (MLB.com) says Dye “is of interest to the Rangers.”
whitesox.com’s Kelly Thesier says it looks like Dye is headed elsewhere:
The White Sox and Dye could negotiate another contract, but it appears likely that he is headed to another team. When Chicago acquired outfielder Alex Rios at the end of August, it appeared as if Dye’s time in the Windy City was going to come to an end. The Rangers have been mentioned as one team that could possibly have interest in the outfielder.
