The Dodgers may have signed Trevor Bauer to a massive deal potentially worth over $100 million, but that didn’t stop them from wanting to spend more. Los Angeles reportedly made an offer to Marcell Ozuna for 2 years before he went back to the Braves on a 4-year deal. Without the DH, having Ozuna would be an interesting move for a team usually so high on versatility.
Speaking of the Bauer signing, it looked like the Dodgers weren’t going to get him for a while on Friday. The Mets appeared to be a front runner, and Bauer’s team accidentally releasing marketing materials too early didn’t help. Bauer felt bad about the accidental misdirection and took to his social media to offer fans in New York an explanation.
