Apr 5 - 3:51 PM

Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports that the White Sox are looking to deal Eric Surkamp in order to create room on the 40-man roster.

The White Sox are facing a roster crunch with several players not on the 40-man roster likely to head north with the big league club. With Zach Duke and Dan Jennings functioning as left-handed arms out of the bullpen, Surkamp has become expendable. With plenty of teams around the league on the lookout for bullpen help, the White Sox shouldn't have difficulty flipping him.
