Of course, the same could be said for the three players the Dodgers traded to the Cincinnati Reds – Scott Schebler, Jose Peraza and Brendon Davis – who then traded all-star third baseman Todd Frazier to the Chicago White Sox to complete the deal.Friedman said the Dodgers discussed acquiring Frazier at one point, too.“Todd’s obviously a really good major league player, a good third baseman,” Friedman said. “We feel like we’ve got a really good third baseman as well and really like Justin Turner. With JT coming off knee surgery, we felt it was in everyone’s best interest for him to be locked in at third. We talked about acquiring Todd and playing (Turner) at different positions. We felt like that could be messy.”Like Peraza, the 24-year-old Johnson is a speedy young second baseman who will compete alongside Chase Utley and Kiké Hernandez in spring training. Unlike Peraza, Johnson bats left-handed. He hit for a .230 average in 36 games with the White Sox this year.Thompson, 25, is the son of former Lakers player and current team broadcaster Mychal Thompson and the brother of Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson. An outfielder who plays all three positions, Friedman described Thompson as “a plus athlete with a long frame that we feel has a chance to continue to improve.” The Dodgers’ offseason acquisitions will not end with Wednesday’s trade for three Chicago White Sox prospects: Pitcher Frankie Montas, second baseman Micah Johnson and outfielder Trayce Thompson.The big question is, what’s next?President of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said he’s still having discussions with free agents and potential trade partners. Montas, Johnson and Thompson are all 25 or younger and played their first major league games this year, adding to the Dodgers’ stash of prospects who are close to being able to help a contender.The three rookies were “not specifically” acquired with the intention of being flipped to another team, Friedman said, “but I do know some teams that have interest in some of the guys we acquired. These guys are really good, interesting young players.” In 36 games with the White Sox last season, Thompson batted .230.The most intriguing player of the three is Montas, whose fastball touched 100 mph in seven games (two starts) with the White Sox in 2015.The Dodgers will give the 22-year-old right-hander a shot at starting in spring training, though Friedman acknowledged “there’s no question in my mind he could step into a major league bullpen right now.”“Our scouts feel his fastball/slider combo is one of the best in the minor leagues,” Friedman said.Was that a soundbite-sized scouting report, or a signal to the other 29 teams of Montas’ value to the Dodgers?Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez has been linked to the Dodgers in trade rumors. The 23-year-old right-hander is one of the few pitchers in baseball who might adequately replace Zack Greinke as a number-two starter behind Clayton Kershaw. But the Marlins are reportedly asking for a mountain of prospects in return for the 2013 National League Rookie of the Year.The asking price can only be lower for the other top-of-the-rotation starters rumored to be available: Danny Salazar and Carlos Carrasco of the Cleveland Indians, Sonny Gray of the Oakland A’s, or Tyson Ross of the San Diego Padres.Wednesday’s trade made enough sense from the Dodgers’ end that it can be justified on its own merits. It also left Friedman feeling more comfortable about trading one of his own pitching prospects.“All moves are somewhat related and connected,” he said. “From our standpoint, whether we end up trading prospects, then we’ve expanded our talent base to do so.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
