Levine @ ESPN:

Chicago White Sox general manager Kenny Williams met with Adam Dunn‘s agent in preliminary discussions on what Dunn is expecting in free agency this offseason, according to a major league source. The 31-year-old Dunn averaged 40 homers and 100 RBIs the past seven seasons. Numerous teams, including Washington where Dunn spent the past two seasons, are interested in the left-handed slugger.

One major league general manager told ESPNChicago.com that the starting point for Dunn will be a three-year, $40-million deal. …

Rosenthal said Dunn might accept a move to DH:

Dunn’s made clear his distaste for a designated hitter’s role, but he isn’t about to rule out AL clubs, who comprise nearly one-half of his market. He could seek a longer term in exchange for accepting full-time DH duty.

Muskat @ CWS:

Chicago general manager Ken Williams says pitcher Jake Peavy is ahead of schedule in his rehab, but the White Sox are not counting on the right-hander to be ready by Opening Day or even the first month. Peavy suffered a detached latissimus dorsi muscle near his right shoulder in early July. “He’s well ahead of schedule,” Williams said Tuesday, “but I don’t want to count eggs before they’re hatched.”

… Despite the injury, Williams said the White Sox head into 2011 with pitching depth. Asked if he expected to acquire another starter, Williams said the team has six now and would add another depending “on how much we want to shake it up.”

… “Whether his time will be now or later will be dependent on what’s available in the free-agent market,” Williams said.
