The White Sox have some degree of interest in Orioles lefty George Sherrill, major league sources indicated Wednesday, but it’s unclear if the sides have had any serious talks. Baltimore prefers to get a third baseman in return for Sherrill, and Chicago may have enough infield depth that general manager Kenny Williams could include Josh Fields in the deal. Fields, once a highly-regarded prospect, came up through the minors as a third baseman but was replaced there by Gordon Beckham last month. Fields, batting .220, has since become a part-time player.

And as we like to keep reminding people, everybody is looking for relief help. The Dodgers, Brewers, White Sox and Los Angeles Angels are all in the mix for Baltimore’s George Sherrill.
BTW, Joe Cowley says that the Sox made a “last-minute play” for Matt Holiday on Friday.
