According to Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald, Ken Griffey Jr. said he wants to play three more seasons. Junior is a free agent now, and the White Sox will probably not re-sign him. Though Griffey is a Type B free agent, the Sox probably won’t risk offering him arbitration.
Could Griffey finish his career back with the Mariners? It’s not known if interest is mutual, as Ms GM Jack Zduriencik would not comment. Griffey, 39, hit .249/.353/.424 in 575 plate appearances this year. Larry LaRue offers commentary on the Griffey idea in a blog post.
