2:44pm: Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald talked to White Sox GM Kenny Williams, who hasn't had any recent discussions for Matsui and suggested the team's interest has been overstated. Williams did not ask for a medical report on Matsui; he says he already understands what he's dealing with.
WEDNESDAY, 1:00pm: Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times tweets that the Sox could go to California next week to meet with Matsui and check out his knee.
TUESDAY, 3:18pm: The White Sox "have emerged as a serious contender for Hideki Matsui," writes Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. He notes that the Angels also confirmed their interest.
I'm not convinced in either regard. Angels GM Tony Reagins said, "He's a person we've talked about," while White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen suggested Matsui would have to be able to play the outfield.
