Today was a little busy in the world of the Los Angeles Dodgers. There was a trade rumor involving the team receiving a call about outfielder Yasiel Puig, the Dodgers attempting to pawn Andre Ethier off on a team, the Howie Kendrick contract signing became official, and much more. Read about that and more in today’s Dodgers Credits:
- Dodgers’ 2016 Yearbook is out, and it features a 27-page spread on Clayton Kershaw which A.J. Ellis made fun of.
- It was reported today that Andre Ethier is on the trade block, but talented outfielder Yasiel Puig is not.
- The Dodgers made the Howie Kendrick re-signing official today, which is fantastic news.
- Also making the rounds today was the unique nature of Kendrick’s contract, complete with deferred payments.
- The White Sox originally called about Puig, not Ethier, but the Dodgers quickly shifted the attention.
- The LADF donated $25,000 to Teach for America-Los Angeles today, a truly touching gesture.
