Bluejays.com has a report that the Jays are going after Chicago White Sox' second baseman Gordon Beckham.
Beckham was a first round pick in 2008, he's been a bit of a disappointment for the White Sox, but there is a fair bit of potential there. Defensively, UZR has him about average, career 0.6 UZR/150, I'd like better than average defense, but then beggars can't be choosers.

They go on to add that:
It's also possible that the Blue Jays would look to expand any deal involving Beckham to also include a starting pitcher. Chicago's Hector Santiago and John Danks are known to be available, and the Blue Jays have a clear need to upgrade their current starting unit.
They say that the White Sox are interested in Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman, but then who wouldn't be. I'd like to keep them personally. Gotta give something to get something, but I think Stroman could be part of the team at some point next season.
Anyway, what do you think? You want Gordon Beckham? What would you be willing to give up for him?
