Mods, please merger with the thread Lip started in Sox Clubhouse. Thank you.
Note on Alex Rios: execs not certain he's available but say would be easier to move his salary after 2012.
Rival team executives believe outfielder Alex Rios’ contract --- which guarantees him $26 million through 2014 and includes a $13.5 million option for 2015 --- would be much easier to move after he rebounded in 2012. Neither is certain the White Sox have made Rios available, however.
They believe the White Sox are open to trades of second baseman Gordon Beckham, outfielders Alejandro De Aza and Dayan Viciedo and starting pitcher Gavin Floyd.
Hahn spent the first two days of the general manager meetings in exploratory mode.
