The Chicago White Sox are still listening to offers for starting pitcher Gavin Floyd, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. The market for Floyd has been a bit tepid of late, but it appears that White Sox GM Kenny Williams may not be done making over his roster after a disappointing 2011.
Floyd, who turns 29 on Jan. 27, has been with Chicago for the past five years. Once an elite pitching prospect with the Philadelphia Phillies, the White Sox bought low on him in and proved to make a great acquisition when he turned the corner. Over the past four seasons, Floyd has made at least 30 starts in each season while posting a combined ERA of 4.08. His peripherals are slightly more impressive, though, with sub-4 FIP and SIERA marks in each of the past three seasons.
It's been a busy winter for the White Sox as they retool their starting rotation. They've already let go Mark Buehrle, converted Chris Sale to starting, and given John Danks a contract extension, with young pitchers like Nestor Molina, Zach Stewart and Simon Castro on the way.
