While some were disappointed that the Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t make any major moves on Thursday, there was one pitcher that supported the decision.
Zack Greinke agreed with the Dodgers’ front office decision not to trade away any of the team’s top three prospects. It was reported the Dodgers were asked for either one or two of Joc Pederson, Corey Seager and Julio Urias.
Greinke noted multiple teams at this year’s deadline decided to trade for Major League ready talent and not prospects. The right-hander voiced his optimism on the trio of Pederson, Seager and Urias, and didn’t believe in trading any of them for a potential rental.
As for other trades, Greinke complimented the Milwaukee Brewers for adding Gerardo Parra to their team. Greinke of course is no stranger when it comes to evaluating talent. He’s previously commented on Seager’s talent and told general manager Ned Colletti he was fond of the Dodgers’ decision to draft the shortstop.
