The Los Angeles Dodgers are close to acquiring right fielder Trayce Thompson from the Detroit Tigers, sources confirmed to The Athletic. The Tigers are getting cash considerations, sources said.

Thompson, the brother of Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson, returns to the Dodgers after playing in Los Angeles during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. The 31-year-old is slashing .305/.365/1.086 with 17 home runs and 36 RBIs this year in Triple A.

Thompson provides right-handed hitting and right field help for a Dodgers team without five-time All-Star Mookie Betts. Betts is on the injured list with a cracked rib.

The Dodgers are 40-25, currently first in the NL West. The Tigers (26-40) sit fourth in the AL Central.
