Gonzo:

Multiple National League sources said the Diamondbacks have interest in Sox free agent reliever J.J. Putz. The Diamondbacks could have an advantage because Putz, who had a 2.83 ERA in 60 games and limited opponents to a .204 batting average last season, resides in the northwest suburb of Peoria. …

Putz is a Type-B free-agent, so if the Sox offer him arbitration and he declines and then signs with Arizona, the Sox get a supplemental first round draft pick. Though, I’d like the Sox to re-sign Putz.

yet another Escobar’s defense is very good report:

Shortstop Eduardo Escobar (White Sox) didn’t do anything at the plate but looked good in the field. No single play stood out; he just seemed to get to grounders without exerting much effort. You’d look up and the play was done. Then you’d look back at where he started and think, huh.
