The White Sox have been slashing payroll since July.
Is it time to do a little spending?
Yoenis Cespedes might be worth the investment, and the 26-year-old Cuban outfielder told a reporter On Thursday the Sox are interested in his services.
Cespedes played his first game for the Dominican Republic Thursday in the Winter League Thursday. He defected to the country late last summer after hitting 33 home runs for his team in Cuba.
A five-tool player, Cespedes is still dealing with legal issues and has not been cleared to sign with a major-league team.
When he does clear, the bidding could rise to $50 million, and it is hard to imagine the White Sox coming up with that kind of money.
In addition to the Sox, Cespedes said the Cubs, Marlins, Tigers, Indians and Orioles are possible destinations.
It has been a rough off-season for Sox fans, and they need something to get excited about.
Signing Cespedes would be a good start.
