White Sox Rumors: Chicago interested in free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez

The Chicago White Sox are actively looking for bullpen help as the Major League Baseball winter meetings continue on, but it appears they might be looking to free agency instead of the trade market at this juncture.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, one of the relief pitchers the White Sox are at least discussing as an option is free agent Francisco Rodriguez:

The 32-year-old righty appeared in 69 contests for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2014, posting his first 30-plus save season (44) since his 2009 campaign with the New York Mets. He appeared in the fifth All-Star Game of his 13-year MLB career, posting a 3.04 ERA and a 73/18 K/BB ratio.

K-Rod has garnered plenty of interest for a litany of teams this offseason, with his price likely being driven up by the amount of clubs looking for back-end bullpen fortification. Whether or not the Chicago White Sox are legitimate contenders to land him at this juncture remains unclear.
