CHICAGO -- Waiver wire deals involving the White Sox during August certainly remain possible. But they won't be based on bringing down payroll, according to general manager Rick Hahn.
"If everything rolls the right way, we won't hesitate to do something," Hahn said. "It's a matter of aligning of not just with the talent and the economics, but making sure it's the right fit for us going forward.
"There's no pressure to do anything from an economic standpoint or just for the sake of let's mix things up. We are going to do it to make sense for the organization for the long term."
