Player Notes
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Ian Desmond "appears less of a target" for the White Sox than adding an outfielder.

Advice: USA Today's Bob Nightengale also previously reported that the White Sox' supposed interest in Desmond was overblown. Rosenthal notes that the club likes Tyler Saladino at shortstop and believes top prospect Tim Anderson could be ready to take over at the position before the end of 2016. Desmond has been linked to both the White Sox and Rays recently, but neither destination looks terribly likely at the moment. The shortstop has gained little traction in the free agent market this winter.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports confirms the White Sox are one of the teams considering free agent shortstop Ian Desmond.

Advice: It's not the first time we've heard the White Sox linked to Desmond. The Rays are also in the running, though so far both teams have been hesitant to give up a draft pick. Desmond is coming off a tough season with Washington. He led the National League in errors and finished second in the NL with 187 strikeouts. He may have to settle for a one-year deal and test the market again next winter.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick writes that free agent shortstop Ian Desmond is a "long shot" for the Rays.

Advice: There's been some chatter about the Rays being interested in Desmond, as he could be a bargain at this point of the winter, but the club doesn't want to give up a draft pick in order to sign him. There's always the chance that they could change their mind, but the 30-year-old appears likely to end up elsewhere. Many have pegged the White Sox as a logical fit for Desmond, but they are also reluctant to give up a pick.
