Report: Dodgers close to trading for Trace Thompson

Thompson, 31, made his MLB debut with the Chicago White Sox in 2015 and was acquired by the Dodgers in a three-team deal later that year. During his two-year ten games with Los Angeles, Thompson hit a .207 with 14 home runs and 34 RBIs.

He was designed for the Dodgers appointment and bounced between the New York Yankees, the Auckland Athletics and the White Sox in the start of the 2018 season before being named a Chicago DFA in June. Thompson was called up by the Chicago Cubs at the end of the 2021 season.

This year, Thompson appeared in six games with the San Diego Padres before being DFA’d and acquired by the Tigers in a minor league deal.

The Dodgers need a little help in the field after a star right fielder Flour Bates broke a rib last week. Earlier in June, Los Angeles also lost outfielder Kevin Pilar when he was injured shoulder fracture at the end of the season.

Thompson is the younger brother of the Golden State Warriors, who has competed in NBA All Star Clay Thompson five times.
