The Dodgers could potentially be making a whole series of moves over the next week. With Tony Gonsolin and Clayton Kershaw slated to return soon, there are a few big decisions on the horizon. But this week, there are a few other minor moves they will need to make.
It turns out the Dodgers could be making 2 moves over the next 2 days to bring guys back. They need arms to get through the Cardinals series and to give them length. Mitch White is supposed to be the bulk guy tomorrow, and Dave Roberts said Monday that Andre Jackson should be back for Wednesday’s game.
Jackson would also be the bulk guy for that game. Roberts said that Jackson in on the Dodgers taxi squad along with outfielder Steven Souza Jr. Souza is not currently on the 40-man roster, so a move would have to be made for him to be activated.
But Doc did say that there is a chance he could be activated as soon as tomorrow. He would join the Dodgers outfield that is in need of a right-handed bat with AJ Pollock on the injured list. Souza has also hit decently at Triple-A after being DFA’d by the big league team earlier this year.
But there will be some help coming this week. Expect Souza to be activated on Tuesday and Jackson to get the call on Wednesday to pitch in that game.
