Damon to White Sox?

New, 2 comments

The Boston Globe suggests that if the Yankees decide not to bring back Johnny Damon, the White Sox could be an option for his services. 

The White Sox need a leadoff hitter and reportedly have their sights set on free agent utility man Chone Figgins. However, several teams are expected to be in on Figgins, meaning his price could go way up. 

Damon, who hit .282 with 24 home runs, has been outspoken about his future with the Yankees during the regular season, hoping he can convey his interest in staying in New York through the media.

Damon would give the White Sox the power hitting leadoff man they need; however, that need could drive up Damon's price.

Damon is also expected to talk to the Cubs, Brewers, Giants, and Padres, among others.
