CBS Sports' Danny Knobler reports that the Chicago White Sox will continue listening to offers for starter Gavin Floyd, but the price tag is expected to stay high:
The belief now is that Williams will consider offers for Floyd and others, but that he will also continue to maintain a high price tag, as he has all winter. While Williams appears to be open to dealing Floyd, he also seems open to keeping him. Floyd is signed through 2012, but his contract carries an affordable $9.5 million option for 2013.
Since coming from Philadelphia to Chicago in the winter of 2006, Floyd has matured in a good, durable starting pitcher, and his contract is reasonable, which adds a bit to his trade value.
