Despite a report by sources close to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports, the Chicago White Sox have no intention on moving starting pitcher Gavin Floyd. In an email from GM Ken Williams to MLB.com’s Scott Merkin, Williams said, “I am not looking to move him.”
Morosi reported earlier on Monday that the Toronto Blue Jays were in pursuit of the right-handed pitcher. The Jays want to bolster their rotation with Floyd who is under contract for 2012 for $7 million with a $9.5 million club option for 2013.
The Red Sox and Orioles had interest in Floyd over the winter with Balitmore nearly landing Floyd, Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com notes.
