White Sox Rumors: John Danks, Gordon Beckham Also Discussed With Toronto

It appears that the Chicago White Sox and Toronto Blue Jays have spent a good deal of time speaking with each other this offseason. The two teams completed a trade centered around closer Sergio Santos recently and it was reported earlier today that they also spoke about Chicago right fielder Carlos Quentin. Those aren't the only two players that were discussed, though, as Richard Griffin of the Toronto Sun is reporting that the two teams also discussed White Sox pitcher John Danks and second baseman Gordon Beckham

It appears that the White Sox and Blue Jays covered discussions on most of Chicago's prime trade candidates. Outside of those four players, it's been rumored that the White Sox are also looking at deals for reliever Matt Thornton and starter Gavin Floyd. When the Santos trade was completed at the Winter Meetings, White Sox GM Kenny Williams did throw out the "rebuilding" word, so the general expectation in the industry has been that they'll continue to deal and retool for the future.
