Lance Berkman is in the process of being traded from Houston to the Yankees, but nixed the possibility of going to the White Sox instead.

In an email to Scott Merkin of, White Sox general manager Kenny Williams admitted the first baseman invoked his 10-and-5 rights to veto being traded to Chicago. "I can't deny the truth," Williams wrote, according to Merkin via Twitter. "It is what it is."

Players with 10 years of major league service, who have been with their current team at least five years, must give approval to be traded. Berkman told reporters in Houston that two days ago, Astros general manager Ed Wade came to him with a list of eight teams that had inquired about him. Berkman said he gave four yeas and four nays, one of the latter apparently being the White Sox.

Berkman agreed to go to New York, and that 24-hour process will be completed Saturday.
