The Chicago White Sox are exploring the addition of a low-end starting pitcher that they can acquire at the "right price" which would give them the roster flexibility to trade right-hander Gavin Floyd.

The Chicago White Sox are exploring the addition of a low-end starting pitcher that they can acquire at the "right price" which would give them the roster flexibility to trade right-hander Gavin Floyd, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports:

Floyd’s name has been included in trade rumors seemingly since the Philadelphia Phillies sent him to the White Sox along with Gio Gonzalez in exchange for Freddy Garcia. The 29-year-old is now entering the final year of his current contract which will pay him $9.5 million for the 2013 season.

The White Sox sport a projected rotation that already includes Jake Peavy, John Danks and Chris Sale, and they appear willing to trade Floyd in order to free up salary space to be used to fill other areas of need on their roster.

Last season Floyd maintained an ERA of 4.29 over 29 starts for the White Sox. He owns a career ERA of 4.29 over nine seasons at the major league level with 7.0 strikeouts and 3.0 walks per nine innings.
