Dodgers and Nationals Officially Agree to MASSIVE Deal For Max Scherzer and Trea Turner

What a day this has been, a huge return headed back to Washington.



The blockbuster deal that Dodgers fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. Just hours after it was announced that Max Scherzer was going to the Padres, we got the news that he was actually coming out to Los Angeles. 

The deal for Scherzer and shortstop Trea Turner is officially happening. The Dodgers have reportedly landed them both in a massive deal that drastically changes the course of the franchise over the next couple of years. 

The blockbuster deal will reportedly consist of several big-name prospects from the Dodgers. They are sending their top 2 in the deal with Keibert Ruiz and Josiah Gray headed out to Washington in the swap. Infielder Donovan Casey is also expected to head out to the Nationals.

The deal required several large hurdles, including approval from Max Scherzer. The veteran hurler has the right to veto any trade, though there is no word yet on if that happened with the Padres. Regardless, Scherzer has already approved the Dodgers deal. 

The other piece confirmed by Washington  Post’s Jesse Dougherty is RHP Gerardo Carrillo. So the Dodgers traded away 2 top prospects that were arguably expendable in the deal and added in their number 17 prospect to get the deal done. 

Now with Scherzer in the rotation, the Dodgers boast one of the most powerful starting trios in all of Major League Baseball.

      • Tim, one concern i have is by the time 2023 rolls around Dodgers could have lost both Seager and Trea Turner to FA. Now of course a lot could happen by then. I heard on MLBN that perhaps Trea Turner won’t sign a long term deal on the West Coast, so wss.

  1. The Dodgers are running strong for a division title and WS 2021 with this trade to the Nats.
    Also, the Dodgers can afford to let Seager walk in case Boras wants a Supreme price to sign Seager for a long-term deal.
