Levine:

The Houston Astros may be ready to start moving some of their veteran players, according to major-league sources. Switch-hitting first baseman Lance Berkman has caught the interest of the Chicago White Sox.

… Berkman is in the last year of a $14 million contract with an option year for 2011 or a $2 million buyout. Berkman has played the outfield and first base, but he’s viewed now as a first baseman. Houston mostly likely would want young players back in any for a veteran.

BTW, Berkman is be willing to waive his no-trade clause.

UPDATE: Olney via Twitter:

Rival execs think Oswalt and Berkman would have trade value–only if the Astros are prepared to take secondary prospects and eat a lot of $.
