White Sox Looking to Deal for Ethier

Thursday, Feb. 4

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported the White Sox "still would like" an offensive upgrade and added the Dodgers would "love to move [Ethier]," but he also added there are "no signs of potential match."

On Feb. 1, Phil Rogers of reported the White Sox were exploring the possibility of acquiring the two-time All-Star from Los Angeles.

The White Sox have been the most active team this winter in terms of making trades, acquiring third baseman Todd Frazier from the Cincinnati Reds as well as third baseman Brett Lawrie from the Oakland Athletics in December.

If the Dodgers trade Ethier, who hit .294 last year, it'll be because of the depth they have in the outfield with Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson. The White Sox could use another solid bat, especially in the outfield, as the team's oldest outfielder, Melky Cabrera (31), batted .273 in 2015.

The 33-year-old Ethier won't be a free agent until 2019, so any team looking to trade for him would be taking on a hefty price tag, though the veteran outfielder could help solidify its lineup.
