Gavin Floyd Trade Rumors: White Sox 'Eager' To Trade RHP, According To Report

According to a report from Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi, the White Sox are "eager" to deal Gavin Floyd. The two writers speculate that Floyd could be traded to help build a package of prospects that Chicago could then send to Milwaukee for Zack Greinke.

The White Sox want to add another starting pitcher and Greinke is high on their wish list, according to major league sources.

The question is how Williams, with a thin farm system, could muster a package to acquire Greinke. And the answer might be by trading right-hander Gavin Floyd for prospects the Sox then could add to a deal for Greinke, who is a potential free agent.

The upgrade from Floyd to Greinke over 10 to 12 starts might not be terribly significant, but Greinke potentially is much more of a difference-maker, particularly if the White Sox reach the postseason.

What’s more, the Sox are eager to move Floyd, sources say.
