Rondell White Rumors

A’s Interested In Cameron

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports in with new info regarding an A’s target.  She says Mike Cameron is in their sights, and the A’s have had "several conversations" with his agent.  The A’s weren’t mentioned as a contender for Cameron last night; he is expected to land with the Brewers or Yankees.

Slusser also names a couple of available right-handed hitting free agent outfielders in Reggie Sanders and Rondell White.  Those are just examples, though – there is no current indication that the A’s have interest.

Slusser adds that there’s nothing to recent rumors of a Huston Street for Coco Crisp swap.  That one sounds like fan speculation (in fact I think I saw it in our comments somewhere).


Twins Close With Rondell White

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting that the Twins are close to re-signing outfielder/DH Rondell White to a one-year deal with a vesting option for 2008.  He’d make $2.75MM in 2007.

White was one of baseball’s worst regulars in the early part of the season, but he came on strong after returning from a shoulder injury.  The price is right for the Twins, but that’s because they’d be fortunate if he manages to play in 110 games.
