News: Albers filed for free agency Monday, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Impact: Albers was one of four White Sox to file for free agency following the conclusion of the World Series on Sunday. Albers quietly put up a solid season after returning from a finger injury in mid-July, failing to yield a run over the season's final two months. He may never close, but he can be a valuable short-inning cog in a bullpen.

News: Albers was credited with his third hold of the season in Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Indians, getting one out on a strikeout in the eighth inning.
Impact: The veteran reliever extended his streak of not surrendering an earned run to 21.2 innings. Albers has provided stalwart relief for the White Sox over 35 innings this season despite missing two full months with a broken finger earlier in the campaign.
