Garfein @ CSN:

J.J. Putz declined arbitration from the White Sox, making him a free agent.

The White Sox have expressed a desire to re-sign Putz, but they’ll have to wait in line.

“Eight or nine teams have shown preliminary interest,” Putz told Comcast SportsNet. “Some for closer roles, others to be a set-up man with a chance for closing.” …

A.J. Pierzynski is talking to multiple teams too. One of them is the Dodgers.

UPDATE: Merkin tweets:

Konerko declines salary arbitration, as expected

    • I think it all depends on how the market for paulie develops and what jerry decides to spend. will some team go after him? if so, will jerry step up or will he leave konerko go? it’s a mystery…

      • we’ve lost most of the great players of 05, but Paul is different, he is the heart of the team
