Here are the latest rumors regarding Free Agent in the Major Leagues:
– The Angels' top priority this offseason is to re-sign right handed pitcher Zack Greinke according to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com. They will face some fierce competition though, since the Rangers are interested in him also.
– Even though the White Sox declined Kevin Youkilis' option, they would like to bring him back reports ESPNChicago.com. White Sox's General Manager, Rick Hahn said today that the team will “stay in pursuit” of the veteran third baseman.
“I had a real good conversation with Kevin when we informed him we were declining the option the other day,” Hahn said. “This is the first time Kevin has had a chance to be out on the open market, and he's got a young family out on the West Coast, and he wants to explore what's out there.
“But he knows there is no confusion in his mind about our desire to bring him back. So we're going to stay on that, stay in communication. It's not a great time to be a club in the free-agent market looking for a third baseman, the player pool is not real deep, so I expect Kevin will be popular, but we're going to be in on that until the end, I think.”
