The Oakland Athletics are always one of the most active teams in trade talks, and this offseason is no exception.

Infielders Brett Lawrie and Danny Valencia are drawing trade interest from American League teams, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports.

The acquisition of Jed Lowrie from the Houston Astros on Wednesday ensures either Lawrie or Valencia will be traded before the first pitch flies in April, Slusser speculates. Lawrie, who can play second and third base, is the more likely of the two to be traded, as he is projected to start at second for the Athletics next season with Marcus Semien assuming the everyday shortstop role.
