The Los Angeles Dodgers have yet to let go of their top prospects in their minor league system in past trade rumors such as Corey Seager, Joc Pederson, and Julio Urias.
Jose De Leon’s name has been on repeat for the potential Brian Dozier trade with the Minnesota Twins. However, the minor leaguers that the Dodgers are not putting on the chopping block are:
- Cody Bellinger (1B)
- Yadier Alvarez (RHP)
- Walker Buehler (RHP)
According to Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball and FanRag Sports, the Los Angeles Dodgers are not interested in trading their top prospects in recent trade talks.
“It’s no surprise that some suggest the Dodgers are being “stingy” with their top prospects in talks for veteran players, as LA values their top minor leaguers high,” said Heyman.
The clubs that may have some dislike to the Dodgers’ ways could possibly be their NL rivals San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals. Both teams have also been interested in Dozier this past month.
The Dodgers do know when they have potential All-Star players and NL Rookie of the Year candidates in their farm systems. But will the Dodgers make the same decision with De Leon, Bellinger, Alvarez, and Buehler?
