With the MLB trade deadline a little under two months away, the Dodgers could find themselves in a position where they might want to consider making a deal to address some needs or put themselves over the top. If LA wants to pull off a blockbuster trade, it would in all likelihood have to include the organization’s top prospect, catcher Keibert Ruiz.
MLB.com listed the 22-year old prospect out of Venezuela as the club’s top trade chip for the July 30 trade deadline. We discuss if the Dodgers should consider moving Ruiz and which needs the team should address before the deadline. Plus, just how good is Dodgers’ super-prospect Diego Cartaya?
If the Dodgers are looking to repeat as world champions, chances are Andrew Friedman will need to make a move or two by the trade deadline. Elite bullpen help will likely be top of the list, but the argument can be made that the club doesn’t have enough starting pitching to make it through the 162 game season. Especially if pitchers like Julio Urias and Walker Buehler have an innings limit under 200 innings.
We’re primed to learn a lot over these next couple months!
