2012 MLB Free Agency: White Sox Interested In 2 Lefty Relievers

The Chicago White Sox apparently have an interest in relief pitchers Mike Gonzalez and Arthur Rhodes. According Jon Heyman of CBS, the southside team has already begun inquiries on the pair:

The White Sox appear to be in a rebuilding mode, at least in their bullpen, following the Sergio Santos trade and the transition of Chris Sale into the rotation.

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.
