|White Sox Offer Buehrle Arbitration
|CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have offered salary arbitration to free agent left-hander Mark Buehrle.
Buehrle has pitched at least 200 innings in every season since 2001. Buehrle has until Nov. 30 to decline or accept the offer. If he declines and signs with another team, the White Sox would receive a draft pick in compensation.
The team also announced Wednesday that it had declined to offer arbitration to veteran leadoff hitter and left fielder Juan Pierre.
