White Sox to tender contracts to Danks, Quentin

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The White Sox tendered contracts to left-hander John Danks and right fielder Carlos Quentin before Monday's 11 p.m. deadline. Both are eligible for arbitration, and because they can become free agents after next season, the Sox are fielding trade offers for each player.

The moves were expected. An unsigned player who isn't tendered a contract by their team can become a free agent.

Danks is expected to earn about $8 million and Quentin about $7 million next season. There's a good chance the Sox will sign them before going to arbitration if they are not traded. Salary arbitration figures are exchanged on Jan. 18. Arbitration hearings begin Feb. 1.

The Sox have made attempts to sign Danks to a long-term deal. Their interest in doing the same for Quentin doesn't appear as strong.
