White Sox Rumors 2012: Gavin Floyd Still Attracting Interest From Other Teams

Other teams continue to focus on Chicago White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd as a possible trade option this spring, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. He says that the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox are two of the teams that could be in play, which bodes with rumors that floated about earlier in the offseason.

Cafardo adds that White Sox GM Kenny Williams doesn't appear to be anxious to move Floyd, but he's not opposed to dealing him for the right return. Floyd currently is slated to join John Danks, Jake Peavy, Phil Humber and Chris Sale in Chicago's 2012 starting rotation.

In 2011, Floyd posted a 4.37 ERA in 193 innings with the White Sox. Since becoming a full-time starter for Chicago in 2008, he's posted a 4.08 ERA while making at least 30 starts in each season. The 29-year-old has typically posted strong peripheral statistics. He's due to make $7 million in 2012, while the White Sox also hold a club option for 2013 worth $9.5 million.
