White Sox Willing To Discuss Gavin Floyd

The White Sox are willing to discuss righty Gavin Floyd, tweets Joel Sherman of the New York Post.  I'm sure the return would have to be significant, as Floyd is locked up affordably through 2012 with a club option for '13.

Floyd, 28 in January, posted a 4.08 ERA, 7.3 K/9, 2.8 BB/9, 0.7 HR/9, and career-best 49.9% groundball rate in 2010.  He'd be preferable to almost every other available starter, even Cliff Lee if you're not keen on top dollar six-year free agent commitments for pitchers.  The Brewers, Rangers, Yankees, Marlins, Nationals, Astros, Pirates, Diamondbacks, Rockies, and Dodgers are among the teams I'd expect to have interest in Floyd.
