08:00 AM ET 01.16 | Even if the White Sox have been quiet, the team may still be looking for a left-handed bat. The departure of catcher A.J. Pierzynski means that the White Sox are projected to have only two regulars that bat from the left side: Alejandro De Aza and Adam Dunn. "We made no secret that it would be nice to have the left-handed bat in there for (manager) Robin (Ventura) to deploy when it made sense, but we just don't want to get a guy to say he's a left-handed if he's not a better option," general manager Rick Hahn said. ... There is one last area of the bench where a left-handed hitter could be added. "Perhaps another infielder that can hit left-handed would fit," Hahn said. "[It's] a consideration and would be a nice complement."

I was hoping they'd try Ken Griffey Jr. for a second time.

Too bad Carlos Pena has been snapped up.Maybe Jack Cust is still floating around?

Pena has lost a lot of bat speed over the past two years. He's done.
