It’s still more than six weeks until MLB’s July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but more than a quarter of the way through the 2017 season, the buyers and sellers are starting to sort themselves out. Here’s a look at one trade rumor that’s floating around.The rumor: The Red Sox are interested in White Sox third baseman Todd Frazier.The source: Nick Cafardo of The Boston GlobeFrom the Globe on Sunday: “Yes, the Red Sox have been scouting Frazier given their tenuous third base situation and the fact they want to give Rafael Deversmore time to develop. Frazier has the perfect power swing for Fenway but has had an awful start (.198, four homers, 15 RBIs). Frazier is making $12 million this season, but the White Sox would eat some of that if a trade came to fruition. There have been reports of the Red Sox looking at White Sox lefthanderJose Quintanaas well, but we doubt the Red Sox would give up another package of top prospects for him.”The take: Pablo Sandovalhas been on the DL with a knee problem for more than a month. Sandoval’s (.213/.269/.377, 3 HRs and 10 RBIs)and Frazier’s slow-starting numbersare a wash.But Frazier’s pull-swing power is perfect for Fenway Park, he hit 40 homers as recently as last season and his contract is up after 2017, clearing the way for Devers, a top prospect, in 2018.Still, the White Sox’s 20-22 start pegs them as what many are calling “motivated sellers,” while Boston needs more production from a corner-infield spot.Don’t expect Boston to give up a lot if the deal is done.
