Report: White Sox want to sign Gordon/Cespedes for three years or less

The White Sox are still hoping to add either Alex Gordon or Yoenis Cespedes this offseason.

On Friday, a report by USA Today's Bob Nightengale said the White Sox are looking to add Gordon or Cespedes for three years or less.

Nightengale said on Wednesday that the White Sox have had dialogue with the three big outfielders (Gordon, Cespedes and Justin Upton), but no deal is close with any of them.

Cespedes, 30, is expected to earn a bigger annual salary than Gordon and could command a deal in the five-year range. 

Gordon, who turns 32 this season, is expected to receive a lesser deal in the four-year range.
