Report: Chicago White Sox Send Trade Offers for Two Players

The Chicago White Sox continue their search for another infielder as the team is trying to ensure they don't slip out of the playoff picture because of injuries. Management has been busy talking trade with several teams and two names have surfaced this week as targets.

We brought you the news about the team's interest in Arizona Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar earlier this week, meanwhile the team has also been in contact with the Pittsburgh Pirates about Adam Frazier.

The White Sox have been hammered with injuries and still  sit 2 games up on the Cleveland Indians for the AL Central lead. It makes sense for the team to be targeting both Escobar and Frazier as their respected teams own the two worst records in the National League. There's no doubt both the Diamondbacks and Pirates will be selling before July 30.

It would be a full circle trade for Escobar who appeared in 45 games for the White Sox between 2011-2012 before he was then dealt to the Minnesota Twins. This season the versatile infielder is hitting .242/.290/.466 with 16 HR in 72 games. He can play all the infield positions and has primarily seen action at third base this season in the desert.

As for Frazier, the 29-year-old has one more season of team control and is having himself a fine season. Frazier is batting .324 on the season and leads the NL in hits with 91 and doubles with 24. In order for the White Sox to acquire Frazier they are likely going to have to give up a prospect within their top-15 list.

Keep an eye on all three of these teams. They will be active before the trade deadline and we will be sure to bring you all the up to date reports here at Baseball Rumors.
