The Chicago Sun-Times’ Joe Cowley reports that Jim Thome and the White Sox were unable to reach an agreement over the weekend and that Thome won’t be back in Chicago next year.
The White Sox clearly had mixed feelings on whether it was in their best interests to bring back Thome as their primary DH. Manager Ozzie Guillen is fine with mixing and matching at the spot, even though Thome would have a pretty good chance chance of being the team’s best or second-best hitter against right-handers.
Thome might now be on his way to Minnesota. The Twins, still not sold on Delmon Young as an everyday player in left field, have interest in the 39-year-old as a part-time DH.
