Report: Teams looking at Dye

Posted on: July 1, 2010 9:25 pm
Jermaine Dye Jermaine Dye wasn't happy with any of the offers teams sent him in the offseason, so he chose to stay home.

Now, teams are calling again with at least the Padres, Rockies and Rangers sending out feelers to the former White Sox outfielder, reports FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

Dye hit .250/.340/.453 with 27 home runs for Chicago in 2009, although most of his production came in the first half. His poor showing in the second half of the season along with his liability on defense caused teams to blanch at Dye's asking price in the offseason. Now, Dye may be more willing to accede, otherwise his price will continue to go down. As Rosenthal points out, players such as Jim Edmonds had to sign a minor-league deal after sitting out a season.

Dye wouldn't be ready to step into the breach immediately, but could have value as a first baseman, outfielder and DH. He would be a cheap source of power -- something the Padres, Rockies and Rangers are in need of. The only question is if Dye is willing to swallow his pride and ink for a low base salary and work his way into shape.
