White Sox Want To Trim Payroll

The White Sox are just 3.5 games out of the AL Central lead, so don’t expect another ‘white flag’ trade this summer. But team chairman Jerry Reinsdorf wants to trim payroll, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

The White Sox went “all-in” last winter and opened the season with a club record $128MM payroll. However, Adam Dunn and others have fallen well short of expectations and GM Kenny Williams said yesterday that he’s considering turning over the roster.

Rosenthal suggests the White Sox could deal Carlos Quentin and Edwin Jackson without compromising the on-field product by calling up Dayan Viciedo and returning to a five-man rotation.
