SAN DIEGO -- The Dodgers are open to moving All-Star infielder Dee Gordon in trade talks, according to a report from Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Sherman cites Gordon's on-base numbers as a reason why the team's new regime would be open to trading him.

Gordon's career on-base percentage is .314, though his .326 mark in 2014 was the best of his career. One team interested in Gordon is the Marlins, according to a report from Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. Gordon would be attractive to the Marlins as an alternative to Donovan Solano, who is currently slated to be the team's starting second baseman.

Gordon, 26, is an interesting trade candidate after a breakout season in which he hit .289/.326/.378 with 64 stolen bases for the Dodgers. He would command a large return from any team looking for a controllable young star, as he is under team control for four more seasons.
