Chicago White Sox Trade Rumors: Mark Buehrle Unlikely To Return To The Southside

According to multiple reports, the Chicago White Sox are likely out of the bidding for free agent pitcher and longtime member of the Chicago White Sox Mark Buehrle. Jon Heyman of MLB Network is reporting that the field for Buehrle's services is down to just five teams, after being as high as 14 teams last Thursday.

MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that four of the remaining five teams are decidedly not the White Sox:

Yesterday we learned that four teams -- the Marlins, Nationals, Rangers, and Twins -- have made offers to long-time White Sox southpaw Mark Buehrle.

On Tuesday, the White Sox GM Kenny Williams spoke with the media and clearly intimated the White Sox were not the fifth team:

So [Mark Buehrle will] be missed unless something happens that is unforseen right now.
