GM: Trade Market Quiet for White Sox
SEATTLE (AP) -- General manager Kenny Williams says he doesn't see any deals on the horizon for the Chicago White Sox because the current market is limited.

Williams spoke in the visiting dugout before Monday night's game at Seattle, 12 days before baseball's deadline for trading without waivers.

Chicago entered the day with a 1-game lead in the AL Central.

Williams says the small group of players the White Sox have targeted in potential deals have proven to be available at too high a cost.

He also says he's "very mindful" of not upsetting the chemistry of a gritty team that has battled back from 9 games out in early May.

Only one team has come back from a bigger first-half deficit to lead a division at the All-Star break. The 1973 St. Louis Cardinals were 11 games out early.
