With the Major League Baseball season down to one or two games, the Toronto Blue Jays are already planning out a possible move for next spring.

MLB.com reports that the Blue Jays have interest in acquiring second baseman Gordon Beckham from the Chicago White Sox and adds that general manager Alex Anthopoulos is intent on upgrading the infield position.

Anthopoulos has recently stated that second base, left field and starting pitching are areas of need going into next season.

Beckham, who hit .267 with five homers and 24 RBIs this season, is eligible for arbitration this offseason and remains under club control with the White Sox through the 2015 campaign.

MLB.com adds that the Blue Jays may look to expand a possible deal with Chicago to include a starting pitcher like Hector Santiago or John Danks, while the Sox are 'strongly interested' in Blue Jays right-handers Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman.
