Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Los Angeles Dodgers have identified Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez as a possible upgrade at the hot corner, but also that the club prefers San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley.

Ramirez just signed a three-year deal with the Brewers this off-season, but the club could ultimately decide to trade the veteran this summer if they become sellers.

Ramirez is under team control through the 2014 season and his contract includes a mutual option for 2015. The 34-year-old is owed at least $30 million over the next two seasons, not including his remaining 2012 salary.

Over his 301 at-bats this season for the Brewers, Ramirez has hit at a clip of .272/.346/.475 with 27 doubles, 10 home runs and 52 RBIs.

Headley is also under team control through the 2014 season, though he’s younger and cheaper than Ramirez. The 28-year-old is making $3.475 million this year and is arbitration eligible twice more.

Headley owns a career OPS of .741, but he’s hit at a clip of .267/.368/.413 this season with 20 doubles, eight home runs and 42 RBIs.
