Found January 26, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Chicago White Sox haven’t actively shopped young players, including Dayan Viciedo or Alejandro De Aza, but general manager Rick Hahn told reporters, including Mark Gonzalez of The Chicago Tribune, that no one is untouchable. The White Sox don’t appear to be inclined to actively pursue a trade of either Viciedo or De Aza, but they also sound willing to listen on any player, based on Hahn’s comments. Chicago reportedly discussed deals involving both players earlier this winter. Considering there are few options left on the free agent market – unless Chicago wants to acquire Michael Bourn – it seems like they will keep both Viciedo and De Aza in the fold as they enter the 2013 season. A former top prospect, Viciedo put together his best showing at the major league level to date last season. The 23-year-old hit .255/.300/.444 with 18 doubles and 25 home runs while playing left field and designated hitter. De Aza got his first shot as a regular at the major league level last season, and he proved effective as the White Sox everyday center fielder. The 28-year-old hit .281/.349/.410 with 29 doubles, six triples and nine home runs over 524 at-bats.

GM Rick Hahn says White Sox poised to make jump

The Chicago White Sox have made no flashy additions to their roster this winter and even lost a link to their championship team, so general manager Rick Hahn understands the perception that the club hasn't improved. That doesn't mean he agrees. He sees a team that's ready to make a jump in the AL Central after finishing second to Detroit last season, even if the White...

Player Profile #126: Chris Sale | SP | CHW

I love everything about what Chris Sale did last year. By winning 17 games on the back of a 3.05 ERA in 192 innings, Sale gave us a blueprint for what a successful reliever-to-starter conversion looks like. Until further notice, whenever I read that a reliever is going to give it a shot in the rotation, I’ll compare him to Sale to estimate his chances at succeeding. But while almost...

Cornering The Adam Dunn Market.

I recently picked up a fantastically-awesome triple relic of one of my favorite non-Dodgers, Adam Dunn. I don't mention Dunn on the blog at all because he's not a guy I collect even though I like him. I even own a Reds' jersey of Dunn I received as a gift many years ago.For just $9.99 delivered I couldn't pass up this beaut. It's super-short-printed to just 8...
