The fire sale is apparently back on.
Floyd could be an attractive target for many teams because he is owed $7 million next season and his contract includes a reasonable $9.5 million club option for 2012. He posted a 4.37 ERA this past season, but averaged a career-low 2.09 BB/9 and his strand rate indicates that he was a little on the unlucky side. Floyd turns 29 in January and has averaged 195 innings over the past four seasons.
It’s not clear if White Sox general manager Kenny Williams is talking with any team in particular right now, but Knobler mentions that the Red Sox expressed interest in Floyd during the Winter Meetings.
