Griffey to White Sox?

With the all-important, "pending player approval", it looks like Ken Griffey Jr. is going to the Chicago White Sox, Ken Rosenthal is reporting bright and early this morning that a deal is near. The White Sox don't have an obvious slot for him but with a little jockeying around, he could play in center field, which he hasn't done since 2006. Moving Nick Swisher to first would reduce Paul Konerko and Jim Thome's playing time. Check back to see if Griffey approves the deal this morning.

UPDATE: Griffey has agreed to the trade according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. The Reds will receive Danny Richar and Nick Masset while paying the remaining $4 million on Griffey's contract.
