The White Sox are only three games back in the American League Central and have no plans of throwing in the towel quite yet, but a number of teams have expressed serious interest in acquiring outfielder Carlos Quentin and the Chicago front office is now actively fielding offers.

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, rival scouts and executives have already concluded that Quentin “will be dealt” before Sunday’s July 31 non-waiver deadline. The Braves are being viewed as the current frontrunner, but the Phillies are also known to have interest and a few other contenders could come calling if the Hunter Pence negotiations go nowhere.

Quentin, 28, is batting .262/.353/.510 this year with 20 home runs and 63 RBI through 93 games for the Pale Hose. He’s making $5.05 million this season and has one more year of arbitration eligibility.

    The White Sox are still the most likely destination for Quentin.

    I got a feeling they are gonna trade him to open a spot for Dayan Viciedo.
