White Sox aren't cutting payroll

David Banks

The Chicago White Sox aren't expected to cut their payroll for the 2013 season, with the numbers coming in where they need to be, according to general manager Rick Hahn.

The Chicago White Sox recently gave free agent third baseman Jeff Keppinger a three-year deal worth $12 million. According to Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago, the White Sox won't need to shed any of their payroll, and are not over budget for the 2013 season.

Hayes is reporting the words of general manager Rick Hahn, who said he is "under no orders right now to shed payroll, so to speak, in order to make additional moves."

Hahn didn't go into detail, but he said that the payroll is in fairly good shape. The White Sox have 11 players under contract for next season, for a total of $93.5 million, while 14 more players still need to get paid. An expected $7-8 million for second baseman Gordon Beckham and outfielders Alejandro De Aza and Dayan Viciedo is included in that number.

Last season, the White Sox opened at $97.7 million, but increased it to $109 million with further additions.
