White Sox Rumors: Chicago Has Discussed Brandon League With Mariners

The Chicago White Sox have discussed relief pitcher Brandon League with the Seattle Mariners recently, according to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports. It's also being reported by other sources that Seattle is close to dealing League, although it's unclear where he'll be heading at this point.

The White Sox have been active as usual this summer, already acquiring a trio of fairly big names in third baseman Kevin Youkilis, reliever Brett Myers and starter Francisco Liriano. GM Kenny Williams apparently isn't doing yet, though, as he told CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes that the team could still make additional moves this week.

The bullpen has been one of the key areas that Williams has looked to address this summer, so the tie to League makes some sense. League, 29, has a 3.05 ERA with 26 strikeouts and 19 walks this year, although he's pitched better since being removed from the closer's role early in the season.
