White Sox trade rumors: Alex Rios deal unlikely

Jason Miller

The Pirates and Rangers are now said to have lukewarm interest in the outfielder.

The Chicago White Sox have been busy this week, sending both Jesse Crain and Jake Peavy to AL East contenders. Another Sox trade chip who has been the subject of constant rumors throughout the summer is likely to stay put, as ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that interest in outfielder Alex Rios has cooled off a bit.

Texas and Pittsburgh were among the teams with the most interest in Rios throughout the month, but their decrease in interest means that the 32-year old will likely remain in Chicago past 4 PM. The Yankees were also rumored to be involved in talks to Rios, but ESPN's Buster Olney reports that they are not at all interested.

With the three most likely fits seeming to be disinterested in the possibility of acquiring Rios, it seems as though the South Siders will not get their wish of moving him before the deadline. With the slow offensive market, things could change quickly as teams scramble to get a bat.
