The White Sox have had internal discussions about bringing Dye back, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. However, Dye is still taking a hard line on what it will take for him to play. "I'm not going to a bad team, and I'm not playing for $1.5 million," Dye said.

Dye rejected a recent contract offer from Washington because it wasn't enough money to move his family from Arizona to the East Coast. "When you get offers from a lot of teams that are in the $1 million range, that's a negative in itself, no matter what," Dye told MLB.com. "I definitely want to play. I'm working out, staying in shape and just wait for the right situation. [My family and I] are OK with it."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Jermaine Dye.

2010

For the first few months of 2009, it looked like the White Sox would activate Dye’s mutual 2010 option without question. He hit .303/.377/.571 to go with 20 home runs over the his first 80 games, and he was very nearly an All-Star. But then he went .181/.292/.296 with a measly seven home runs over his final 61 contests. It is unclear what precipitated the fall, but his chronic tinkering with his batting stance prevented him from finding any sort of consistency. The slump spooked the Sox so much they traded for Alex Rios, all but assuring they wouldn’t bring back Dye. Dye could be a bargain to a new club and fantasy owners alike if he can rekindle a shade of that first half. If not, he'll be in a tough spot as there are more aging corner outfielders out there than vacancies.

2009

Despite fairly stable walk and strikeout rates, Dye's batting average has swung by 40 or more points a year for three years now, taking his fantasy value along for the ride, because the BA affects his runs and RBI. His speed is gone (12/6 SB/CS in three years), so you're taking him for the production numbers, which should remain good for another season. A trade would almost certainly hurt his value, as he's in a good park and good lineup.

2008

Dye dealt with a variety of maladies in the first half (lower back strain, knee, strained quadriceps) and hit just .214 with 12 homers before he bounced back in the second half, hitting .298 with 16 homers. He's not likely to reach the 44-homer mark he set in 2006 but the 34-year-old still has some baseball left in him. He signed a two-year, $22 million extension in August and will be Chicago's starting right fielder again in 2008.

2007

Whatever Joe Crede and Jermaine Dye were eating last season should be boxed up and sold for millions of dollars. His home run and RBI totals were career highs as was his .622 slugging percentage. Through no fault of his own, his MVP chances were squashed by a second-half swan dive by the White Sox. Although Dye's 2006 numbers were shocking, they followed a trend that started after his 2001 broken leg. A repeat in 2007, at age 33, is not out of the question.

2006

After looking like his career was heading into its twilight following his 2001 broken leg, Dye rebounded with a vengeance last year, hitting .274/.333/.512 with 31 home runs - his best power numbers since the injury. Despite it seeming like he's been around forever he'll only be 32 in 2006, so just as long as he can stay out of the trainer's room a repeat isn't out of the question.

2005

A minor drop in production due to injuries and age tends to get magnified in Oakland given the tough hitting environment, so he may rebound on park affect alone in right field for the White Sox. However, he did hit worse on the road last season. The bottom line is he's not the same hitter he was before the leg injury, and while he's not washed up at 30 years old, he's unlikely to return to his Kansas City level of production. His pre-Break numbers (.284, 16 HR, 54 RBI) show some promise of what remains if he can stay healthy. An elbow and more serious thumb injury made him useless after July 1.

2004

Dye's knee and shoulder problems killed off another season. He has major upside compared to his injury-riddled campaigns of late.

2003

Took awhile before he was fully recovered from the broken leg he suffered in the 2001 playoffs. An 18-HR, 53 RBI second half saved his season, though he struggled to hit .250 on the year. The 30 HR power is still there, though hitting .300 is a tall task with the foul territory in Oakland. Take a .280/30 HR season and be happy with it.
