ICYMI: Dodgers in Trade Talks To Send Outfielder to Cleveland

The Los Angeles Dodgers do, however, have a few guys coming back from injury, and getting them healthy again would be something close to a free agent signing.

Case in point: Yasmani Grandal, whose playing level plummeted as his should worsened late in the season.

Thursday, though, Grandal offered an update on his recovery from shoulder surgery.

This is obviously great news, given Grandal’s upside and defensive abilities behind home plate. While A.J. Ellis obviously finished the season exceedingly strong, Grandal is simply more talent at this stage in their careers.

The Dodgers will obviously need both Grandal and Ellis, who are both arbitration-eligible. Grandal’s update undeniably important, though, both for him individually and for the Dodgers collectively.

About The Author


First and foremost, I love everything Los Angeles. I was born and raised as such. There is video of me, hardly a year old, saying my version of "goooo Dodgers" as my parents cheered alongside me. I could not possibly be more proud to hold this position as we at DodgersNation look forward to enhancing the Dodgers fan experience in any way we possibly can.
