5 Available Free-Agent Steals That Are a Good Fit for the Chicago White Sox

With the departure of Brett Myers, the White Sox are in need of another reliever.

Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn is now dealing with a shallow pool of available free agents. Not so thin, however, that the White Sox cannot find a free-agent steal among them.

As Hahn wades through what free agents are left, there are two areas the White Sox must address.

The first thing the White Sox need is a left-handed hitter. The only two that have any value, though—Adam Kennedy and Kelly Johnson—don't appear to improve the team.

So, that means a left-handed stick will more than likely come in the way of a trade. Gavin Floyd’s name is still being mentioned as someone who is available and Jason Kubel has emerged as a rumored target for the White Sox.

Now, the other position Hahn has stated needs to be addressed is in the bullpen. With the departure of Brett Myers likely, the Sox are going to need another set-up man.

Good news on that front: there appear to be five strong free-agent relievers who may accept short-term deals with the White Sox for less than they earned in 2012 and become steals in the process.
