Currently, the team has lefty Will Ohman on the roster, but Gonzalez (career 2.94 ERA) and the 42-year-old Rhodes (career 2.94 FIP against lefties) both offer impressive -- and coincidentally 2.94-related -- abilities. Also, at this point in the year, the White Sox could presumably sign either one of them on minor league or split contracts, making the potential costs of their signing minimal.
