White Sox offer arbitration to Mark Buehrle

The Chicago White Sox have offered salary arbitration to free agent pitcher Mark Buehrle, but the club has declined to offer arbitration to free agent outfielder Juan Pierre.

By offering arbitration to Buehrle, 32, the White Sox preserve the right to draft pick compensation should the left-hander sign with another club.

The White Sox remain free to negotiate with and sign any of their remaining free agents, regardless of whether arbitration was offered.
