According to Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman, free agent pitcher and long-time member of the Chicago White Sox, Mark Buehrle, has become a major target this offseason:

Considering there are only 30 MLB teams, having serious interest from 14 different clubs -- half the league -- may ensure Buehrle draws at least the second largest contract among pitchers this offseason -- and possibly challenge C.J. Wilson for biggest pitcher payday in the 2012 Hot Stove.

Buehrle has played all 12 of his seasons in the majors with the White Sox and has pitched over 200 innings in 11 of those seasons, making him easily the most durable and proven pitcher on the market.
