White Sox fans might see a different Alex Rios in 2012 when he steps to the plate.

Hitting coach Greg Walker believes the struggling center fielder will at least have to consider making adjustments in his swing after this season.

"Next year is for next year, but we've talked about making changes," Walker said of Rios, who was batting .207 with only 24 RBIs entering play Tuesday.

Walker said it's not uncommon for Paul Konerko to consider making adjustments prior to each at-bat but that it's tough to make major changes during the course of a regular season.

Rios' second poor season in his last three years has prompted the thought of major changes.
