White Sox offer arbitration to Buehrle, not Pierre

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The White Sox offered salary arbitration to free agent Mark Buehrle on Wednesday.

By offering arbitration to the 32-year-old left-hander, the Sox will get a draft pick as compensation should he sign with another team. He has until next Wednesday to accept or decline. Buehrle is not expected to accept, but he may still negotiate with the Sox.

The Sox declined to offer arbitration to free-agent outfielder Juan Pierre.

The decisions on Buehrle and Pierre were expected.

The Sox are free to negotiate with any of their remaining free agents, regardless of whether arbitration was offered. Catcher Ramon Castro and infielder Omar Vizquel are free agents.
