Dodgers Shopping Dee Gordon

4:30pm: The Dodgers will only trade Gordon for a significant return, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

6:55am: The Dodgers are shopping Dee Gordon in trades, according to Peter Gammons of the MLB Network. The 24-year-old Gordon figures to draw significant interest given the dearth of shortstops available via free agency.

Gordon hit just .228/.280/.281 last season, although he did manage to steal 32 bases in 42 attempts. Gordon missed most of the second half after undergoing surgery on an injured right thumb in 2012. He received a mere three plate appearances following July 4. Gordon opened the season as the Dodgers' starter at shortstop, but could be replaced by Hanley Ramirez, whom the Dodgers acquired from the Marlins at the trade deadline.

Gordon will turn 25 next April, but isn't far removed from ranking as the No. 26 prospect in the game according to Baseball America (pre-2011). Stephen Drew is the lone notable free agent on the shortstop market, while the trade market features names like Yunel Escobar, Asdrubal Cabrera, Jed Lowrie and Zack Cozart could come up in trade talks. The Diamondbacks, Athletics and Rays are among the teams that could use additional middle infield help.
