The Chicago White Sox have thrown their names into the hat as players while we roll up to the MLB trade deadline thanks to the likes of Paul Konerko and Jake Peavy.

That, or the White Sox figure to be players at the waiver wire in August thanks to Konerko and Peavy.

Both have shown an inability to stay healthy as of late and appear to be gone from Chicago one way or another according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (h/t Zach Links):

The White Sox are a virtual lock to make deals before the deadline, but even then, their work might not be done.  Even if Paul Konerko and Jake Peavy do not show that they are fully healthy by July 31st, they could get moved during the August waiver period.  Both would figure to clear waivers and if Konerko wants to join a contender, he would waive his 10-and-5 rights and the White Sox would almost certainly try to accommodate him.

Both Konerko and Peavy have plenty to offer if they can actually mange to stay healthy. Obviously the ideal scenario is to have both healthy in order to get something in return on the trade market, but at least getting their contracts off the books in August is a good option as well.
