The White Sox seem open to dealing veterans on their major league rosters, and they could consider a deal with the Dodgers, who are interested in Todd Frazier, according to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.

While Frazier could be a third base option for the Dodgers to consider, Los Angeles reportedly prefers to re-sign Justin Turner, who some have described as the best available infielder.

Chicago has already dealt starter Chris Sale in exchange for prospects, so it’s likely the club is open to other deals. Frazier has only one more year of club control, though, and as a result might not yield a significant return.

Frazier, 30, added notable power to Chicago’s lineup but batted just .225/.302/.464 with 40 home runs and 98 RBIs over 158 games last season. He is a career .250 hitter but has hit at least 19 home runs in each of the last five seasons.

The Dodgers likely have the prospects necessary to get a trade done but might be focused on re-signing Turner before considering a trade for Frazier.
