White Sox acquired 3B Brett Lawrie from the Athletics for RHP J.B. Wendelken and LHP Zack Erwin.

In 562 at-bats with the A's in 2015, Lawrie hit .260/.299/.407 with a career-high 16 homers and 60 RBI. The 562 AB's were the most the 25-year-old infielder has received in his five years as a major league player. The A's had a need to move Lawrie after they acquired Jed Lowrie in November. And the White Sox had a big hole at third base.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle hears that the White Sox are "not quite ready to pull the trigger" on a trade with the Athletics for Brett Lawrie.

Slusser previously reported that the A's and White Sox were close to a deal. The two sides are still said to be working on it, but it's not quite at the finish line.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are close to trading Brett Lawrie to the White Sox.

The White Sox are expected to receive two minor league players in return, though the specifics aren't known. Lawrie was expected to move since the addition of Jed Lowrie last month and Chicago has made it a priority to acquire a third baseman, so it's a natural fit. Assuming the deal is completed, the White Sox will have him under team control for two years.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle hears that the Angels "don't have a ton of interest" in Brett Lawrie.

The Halos have been one of the clubs linked to the infielder, but it appears their interest is mild. The A's are expected to trade Lawrie following the acquisition of Jed Lowrie, with the Indians, Tigers and White Sox among the interested parties.

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels have talked to the Athletics about Brett Lawrie.

The A's are expected to trade Lawrie after the acquisition of Jed Lowrie, and the Angels make sense as a landing spot since they have a hole at third base and also potentially second base. The Indians, Tigers and White Sox are among the other clubs that have also showed interest in Lawrie over the last couple of weeks.

According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Indians, Tigers, and White Sox have expressed interest in trading for A's infielder Brett Lawrie.

Slusser wrote last month that the Athletics are likely to deal Lawrie this winter following the acquisition of Jed Lowrie, and there appears to be a nice market developing for the 25-year-old. Danny Valencia may also be on the block for Oakland. Lawrie batted just .260/.299/.407 in 2015 and rated poorly on defense, but he does have some attractive tools and two more years of club control.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are likely to trade Brett Lawrie following the acquisition of Jed Lowrie.

Slusser says the trade for Lowrie "all but ensures" the A's will deal either Lawrie or Danny Valencia, and Lawrie "is considered the better bet to be traded." The report adds that both Lawrie and Valencia "are drawing interest" from American League clubs. Lawrie hasn't come close to reaching his full potential, hitting only .263/.316/.420 in his first five big league seasons, but he'll turn just 26 in January and is under team control through 2017, so it's not terribly surprisingly that some clubs appear to have interest.

Brett Lawrie went 3-for-4 with a double and a strikeout in Thursday afternoon's win over the White Sox.

Of the White Sox seven hits as a team, Lawrie notched three. His shallow double off White Sox closer David Robertson with one out in the ninth inning helped spark a late three-run rally that turned a 2-1 loss into a 4-2 win. He's hitting .273/.310/.436 with 16 homers and 58 RBI this season.

Brett Lawrie is not in the Athletics' lineup Tuesday.

It's just a day off. Eric Sogard is at second base in Lawrie's place.

Brett Lawrie's only hit in four at-bats was a solo home run as the Athletics lost on Tuesday to the Angels.

Lawrie gave the Athletics an early 1-0 lead, driving a Matt Shoemaker over the fence in left-center for his 14th home run of the year. He's batting .269/.308/.419 with 53 RBI in what has been another adequate season for the former top prospect.

Brett Lawrie (back) is back in the Athletics' lineup Monday.

Lawrie had to be scratched from Sunday's lineup after his back tightened up on him, but he's ready to go now. He's hit a disappointing .272/.309/.418 in his first season in Oakland.

Brett Lawrie was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to back tightness.

It's an issue that crops up on Lawrie from time to time. Eric Sogard has taken his spot at second base.

Brett Lawrie hit a 470-foot homer Friday in the loss to the Diamondbacks.

The rest of Oakland's offense isn't doing a whole lot, but Lawrie has 14 hits in his last eight games, including three homers and three doubles. If anything, he's played a little better and stayed healthier than the A's should have expected this year. It just doesn't really make up for losing Josh Donaldson.

Brett Lawrie (back) is back in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

Lawrie missed the previous three contests with a back injury. He sports a disappointing .263/.299/.399 batting line and 106/18 K/BB ratio on the season.
